Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza : Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters
Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters will perform in the spectacular grounds of Glastonbury Abbey in August, Festival founder Michael Eavis has announced.
The annual Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza takes place on Saturday August 9th and will end with the traditional firework display.
Robert Plant’s Sensational Space Shifters present a show of adventure, spontaneity and passion. One of the greatest live Rock and Roll performers of all-time hits another peak with a band mixing African Trance, Psychedelia, and 21st century warped dance beats into a web of re-envisioned Led Zeppelin classics.
Michael said: “I’m delighted Robert Plant and his Sensational Space Shifters has chosen to perform at the Abbey for our 18th year. We started in 1996 and only had one year off which was 2012.
“This night is a chance for those locally who can’t always get to the Festival in Pilton to enjoy something extra special in this wonderful town'.
