Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim has soundtracked a new film about Ibiza that's set to premiere at this year's Glastonbury.
A collaboration between director Julien Temple and Cook, 'Ibiza - The Silent Movie' tells the "extraordinary 2,000-year story of dance music’s most influential, charismatic and spiritual island without the use of dialogue."
As well as Cineramageddon, Temple's post-apocalyptic drive-in at Glastonbury, the film will be simultaneously screened at cinemas across the UK. See listings below.
The Glastonbury screening will be followed by a live silent disco by Cook.
"Julien showed me what was beneath the surface, beneath that rich ochre earth," he said. "There are stories you wouldn’t believe: Phoenicians, Romans, Beatniks, even Nazis all dancing to the unique rhythm of a magic island...and how do you tell the story of one of the most colourful and unique islands on this planet? The answer is chew up the rule book, spit it out and set the resulting chaos to the most eclectic and evocative music the Island’s history has to offer."
Temple added: "From the jazz of the beatniks, the psychedelic guitars of the 60s through to the electronic drum pulses of the clubland era, the island’s extraordinary journey through time to the outer limits of the tourist universe has always been powered by music.”
Here are the 10 moments that defined Fatboy Slim.
