A separate no extras original cut of the movie 87mins long.
A three DVD box set which comprises:
Disc 1 is yet another cut of the movie this time 96 mins long, and then lots of audio & visual extras that can be viewed interactive with the film or alone. However to watch them alone is not easy, you have to find them rather than convenient seperated section.
Disc 2 is yet another cut of the film but with enough extras that you can if you want watch it as a continuous stream that would last 38hour's - yes, 38hrs. Don't get too excited though, most aren't worth it.
Disc 3. Surprisingly is great. Full of fun extras that for me were better than the original film.
I found the original film to lack enough music & indeed variety of music. I would seriously recommend the Julien Temple Glastonbury DVD instead as a better all encompassing document of a festival. Instead this movie (Glastonbury the movie) centres of one year.
Amazon is lumping in all the SKU's to one here for reviews, so please don't take it personally that I'm only rating this 3/5 stars, this is specifically for the shortcomings of the Blu-ray edition not the multi-disc DVD sets.
The box lists the audio as dts-HD Master Audio, but it's only regular lossy DTS, DVD quality. I will edit my review later when I check whether it's 1/2 bit-rate or not. There are no extras supported here. Watching "Gravity Grave" by The Verve, which was a terrific performance and it's a shame it wasn't presented in full, shows the poorer video sections of this movie, it's not even presented in anamorphic so you have to either zoom or just deal with the inferior choice of presenting this video source. There are other video-sourced presentations like Dire Straits' "Alchemy" on Blu-ray which use the full range of picture available (it's 4:3 but it still fills your screen from top to bottom with the 4:3 bars on the side) so I don't see any reason for this to have happened.
The vast majority of the festival footage does look great in high definition, and I would rate that 4/5 easily, but the other footage brings it down.
I'm not thrilled that I upgraded my DVD to this as the performance footage was the primary reasons for picking this up, but if the festival footage is what you're looking for then I believe you'll enjoy the improvements this Blu-ray offers. Shame the audio spec isn't as advertised. Still it was pretty cheap so I'm not much out of pocket.
It's a shame they don't include the bonus performances on this Blu-ray, I guess you can also buy the 4-disc set that's coming out on July 15th, 2013 to get the full performances of Gravity Grave and Make It Till Monday from The Verve as well as the following tracks on DISC 2:
1. Extra Live (Video)
2. Glastonbury The Movie (1996)
3. Lemonheads - Shame About Ray 2:10
4. Evan Dando's Campfire Set 13:03
5. Spiritualized - Smiles 5:45
6. The Verve - Make It `Til Monday 3:08
7. The Orb - Fluffy Clouds Mix 5:46
8. Airto Moreira - Tambourine Solo 2:36
9. Ozric Tentacles - Vita Voom 1:53
10. Back To The Planet - Please Don't Fight 3:24
11. Extra Music (Audio)

24. Ozric Tentacles - Interview 2:01
25. Back To The Planet - Interview 2:56
The four disc set is only 2 pounds more, the link is Glastonbury: The Movie In Flashback (4-disk DVD + Digital Copy)  [Region Free]
Shame they didn't get the full Verve set on there with the other full gigs they're presenting, but the 4-disc DVD set definitely looks like the better option to me.
I grew up watching Woodstock The Movie at the pictures, and sometimes this film has flashbacks of that type of film, with split screens and subject matters.
It is less than a musical document that Woodstock is, more an observation, but still very good.
So why the "but" in my review ?
I would love to see something from 1981, as this was the last time I was at Glastonbury.
Still have the ticket autographed by Ginger Baker, and still go to Hawkwind gigs.
