Fun in the mud at Glastonbury Festival

Festival goers gather at the Stone Circle to see the sun set at the Glastonbury Festival site at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 22, 2011 in Glastonbury, England. Heavy rain and mud greeted music fans as the gates to the five-day festival opened to the public. This year the festival will feature headline acts U2, Coldplay and Beyonce. The festival, which started in 1970 when several hundred hippies paid 1 GBP to watch Marc Bolan, has grown into Europe's largest music festival attracting more than 175,000 people over five days.
