Ah, Glastonbury — the mud, the music, the one festival that sells out a year in advance. Simply said, it’s pretty much the mecca of all music gatherings. However, as seen in Lily Allen‘s latest video for “As Long As I’ve Got You,” this festival is not only the gig of every artist’s wet dreams, but also a place that holds a certain element of nostalgia for the British songstress.
As it turns out, Lily is a fervent Glasto-goer, showing baby photos of her with the Allen fam and slowly progressing to images of her teenage years at the festival in the beginning of the video. The clip then switches to the Sheezus singer going on a lovely stroll through 2014′s Glastonbury grounds, laughing, dancing, twirling, even taking a few snaps to remember the glorious experience in between.
“Glastonbury has always been a huge part of my life, and I wanted to make this video there to celebrate the spirit of the festival and also to show how my life has changed since the last time I played there,” Lily noted when speaking about the clip. “From being there as a child with my Dad, to my wilder days in the 2000s, to this year when I was back on the Pyramid stage, and taking my husband and own daughters along!”
Keep the tradition going, Lily. Maybe one day we could even join you! Watch the tribute up top, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
