The unique five-day film festival within Glastonbury Festival is back for its second edition with world premieres, pre-release screenings and star-filled introductions.

Curator Julien Temple will treat the nocturnal audience seated in a post-apocalyptic drive-in auditorium, courtesy of artist Joe Rush, featuring seventy mutated vintage British and American cars, repurposed funfair rides and a Lear jet.

“Welcome to Cineramageddon V2 with a rock n’ roll edge to the film programme.  With 70 mutated cars, and up to 5,000 headphones there’s more apocalyptic hospitality and cuddle space than ever before. It could only happen at Glastonbury where people prove each year that they can handle any kind of weather and there’s nowhere better to watch a movie, outside and under the stars”- Julien Temple
