Over 700 acts, over 80 stages. 177,000 people over 3 days of entertainment. We stayed 5 nights. 300 tonnes of recyclable waste and 110 tonnes of other waste removed from the site. Tickets sold out in 1 hour and 45 minutes. We got ours in the second round thanks to Bec and Shaun sitting on the phone in London. I dont know how much rain. Between 3-10 centimetres of mud in varying consistencies on 900 acres of cattle grazing land in Pilton, England. 2 pairs of gumboots and 5 pairs of socks. 1 warm apple cider and disgustingly delicious Yorkshire Pudding. A stack of strangers out to have a good time.
The Killers, Mika, Lily Allen, The Who, Pete Doherty, The Cat Empire, Arcade Fire, James Morrison, Shirley Bassey, The View, The Fratellis, Amy Winehouse, The Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Chemical Brothers, Paolo Ntini and hundreds of others that Ive never heard of.

Heres the pics- check out the fun we had!!

They were broken at this stage and giving me a very muddy foot but i was still smiling- the best thing to do to deal with the weather was dance around like a lunatic in it!! Once your saturated what difference does it make!
