 グラストに通い続けて25年、やってくるたびに思うのは、混沌としたなかにある「日常では味わえない世界」こそがここの魅力なんだろうという想いかもしれない。音楽の魅力を否定するつもりはさらさらないんだが、ここにいると、音楽を遙かに突き抜けた、その「核」がアナーキーに広がっているところに、飽きもせずに魅了され続けている自分に気がつくのだ。農場だというのに、まるで映画のセットを組み立ててしまったかのような「別世界」が作られ、ありとあらゆるエンタテインメントで溢れかえっている。これを体験すると、なかなか抜けることができないし、それがまるで麻薬のように自分の身体の中にしみこんでいくのがわかるのだ。

 そのせいだろうか、今年もライヴを見たのは数本のみ。もちろん、そのそれぞれが素晴らしく、新しい発見もあった。ロドリゴ・イ・ガブリエラに卒倒するほどの衝撃を受け、ジョン・フォガティの土臭い名曲オンパレードなロックンロールに酔いしれた。他にも、見たらそれだけ「感動」が待ち受けていたに違いない。が、そんな音楽よりなにより「グラスト」を感じるのは、フジ・ロックのパレス・オヴ・ワンダーを演出しているミュートイド・ウェイスト・カンパニーが作り出すエリア、ロスト・ヴェイグネス。まるで「不思議の国」にさまよい込んだようなここは、何度来ても飽きないし、そのたびに未体験の「知覚の扉」を当たり前のように開いてくれるのだ。。

 誰にも文句を言われることもなく、指図もされない。全く「自由」な世界で自分の五感がどんどん研ぎすまされていくのがわかる。だからこそ、ここで体験する全てにとてつもない感動を覚え、未知の音楽にも素直に反応することができるのではないかと思う。その結果が凝縮されているのがこのところ続々と発表されているグラスト関連の映像ではないだろうか。

 その歴史の全てとグラストの魅力の全てを詰め込んだジュリアン・テンプル監督の映画『グラストンバリー・ザ・フィルム(原題)』に始まって、『グラストンベリー・アンセムズ ~ザ・ベスト・オブ・グラストンベリー~ 1994-2004』、あるいは、70年代初期のドキュメント『グラストンベリー・フェア』と、買いあさって見た映像から飛び出してきたのは、そんな世界でしか味わうことのできないエネルギーだ。どの演奏も素晴らしいのだが、そのパワーを生み出すのは、間違いなくここに集まってきている人たちが、自由な環境のなかで生み出す波動なんだろう。ここに来るたびにそんなことを再確認させてくれるのが嬉しいし、麻薬のような魅力にどんどん引き込まれていくのが快感でもあるのだ。
