Glaston-buried: Fans drown in sea of mud and the music hasn't even started yet



By Daily Mail Reporter


Last updated at 5:37 PM on 23rd June 2011


Festival fans were contending with muddy mayhem at Glastonbury today after yesterday's torrential downpours turned the 900-acre site into a quagmire.


Every inch of Worthy Farm has become a mud bath as early arrivals gear up for the beginning of the main event tomorrow.


Welly-clad music fans put on brave faces despite hundreds of tents flooding and treacherous conditions underfoot.

article-2007311-0CB1C4E000000578-35_964x675.jpg Quagmire: A festival-goer carefully walks through a puddle. There'll be a lot more where those came from



article-2007311-0CB234D600000578-460_964x670.jpg Desperate measures: Site workers try to suck mud from the market areas close to the Pyramid Stage in an attempt to dry them before the main event begins





Dare to bare: With conditions this bad, the only solution is...shorts. As small as possible, so there's less to get a soaking. Negotiating tricky patches with aplomb will be the order of the weekend for the best dressed festival goers


article-2007311-0CB1CB9900000578-700_964x617.jpg Tent city: Aerial view of the Glastonbury Festival taken today. Over the course of a few days Glastonbury becomes the home to thousands of party goers creating a temporary town twice the size of the city of Bath











THURSDAY: Worthy Farm saw some showers this morning, but these have now moved away leaving a dry day with lots of sunny spells.


However, it will still be breezy at times with temperatures up to around 18C. Tonight will be a dry but chilly night with temps around 11C.


FRIDAY: As the festivities begin in earnest they weather will be dry with more sunny spells.


Unfortunately as the day progresses the cloud cover will increase, meaning there is the chance of a shower in the afternoon and a wet evening looks likely – so wellies are definitely needed.


WEEKEND: The weekend weather is looking good with some warm temperatures in the low 20’s and even up to 25C on Sunday with more sunny spells – so time for the sun tan lotion.


It will be breezy but again the nights are looking dry with temperatures of 12C on Saturday night and 15C overnight on Sunday.



Glastonbury Festival organisers in tractors have been dumping tonnes of straw and bark onto the ground in a bid to combat the boggy conditions.


A week of wet weather has saturated the 1,100-acre site and turned large areas into a huge bog with mud up to eight inches deep.


Revellers were woken in the early hours of yesterday morning by torrential rain beating down on their tents.


But the rain and mud failed to dampen the spirits of the festival-goers - who took turns to dance and dive through the mire.

Egged on by his mates, 17-year-old student Tom, from Kent, performed headlong dives on demand to cheer up arrivals trudging through the sodden 900-acre site.

Countless efforts left him caked in mud from head to toe, with dairy farm sludge stuck in the braces on his teeth.


But he declared with a grin: 'If I run out of clothes, I'll just do it naked.'

His dives received roars of approval from hundreds of onlookers along with the group of friends he was camping with.


Best friend Callum Burgess, also 17, said: 'I'm supposed to share a tent with him but he can sleep outside. Look at the state of him.'

Chris Darch, 24, from London, said: 'It bucketed down with rain at about 5am and made the site look like the Battle of the Somme.

'It's not what we wanted but everyone seems to be making the best of it. The kids are playing in the puddles, the adults are dancing in it and one mad lad even performed a dive through the mud.'

U2's Glastonbury set will be interrupted by an 'unmissable' protest against the band's alleged 'tax dodge', campaigners vowed today.

Direct action group Art Uncut is plotting a 'visual spectacular' during the Irish band's headline appearance on the Pyramid Stage.

The protest is expected to involve a giant inflatable let off by the group. Placards will also be held up declaring 'Bono tax dodger' and 'Bono pay up'.

The group is staying tight-lipped over details of the protest but campaign member Anna Walker, 32, said: 'Everyone there will see it.

'If the BBC do not broadcast it, there is little doubt that it will have been an editorial decision.'

Fellow campaigner Charlie Dewar added: 'U2's multimillion euro tax dodge is depriving the Irish people at a time when they desperately need income to offset the Irish government's savage austerity programme.

'Tax nestling in the band's bank account should be helping to keep open the hospitals, schools and libraries that are closing all over Ireland.

'Bono is well known for his anti-poverty campaigning but Art Uncut is accusing him of hypocrisy.'



A total of 177,000 revellers are expected to attend the festival, which gets underway in earnest on Friday when the music starts on the main stages.


U2, Morrissey and Biffy Clyro will take to the famed Pyramid Stage on Friday night as the festival gets into full swing.


Coldplay will headline the main stage on Saturday night and Beyonce on Sunday. Acts appearing on other stages include Chipmunk, Chase And Status and Primal Scream.


Avon and Somerset Police said 36 arrests were made on Wednesday - the opening day - for a variety of offences including possession of drugs, theft and assault.

A quantity of drugs, some believed to be Class A substances and legal highs, were recovered and taken away for examination.


Inspector Chris Morgan said: 'We are pleased with the way the festival has been going so far.


'It is early days but reported crime is lower than the same time last year but our proactive patrols have made a higher number of arrests - demonstrating our determination to ensure that all festival goers have a safe and happy time here - despite the mud.'


There are eight regular police officers and 40 special constables patrolling the site at Worthy Farm near Pilton, Somerset.Diving face down through Britain's biggest mudbath, teenage reveller Tom Wilder ensured the Glastonbury cheers started early.

Clouds cleared over the Pilton hills last night, but the rain returned this morning and is due for a reprise later today - the best weather is not expected until Sunday.


More than half the ticket-holders for the sold out event will have squelched their way to the site by tonight. But early arrivals' efforts to secure prize camping spots were confounded by yesterday's monsoon-like conditions.

Hundreds of tents were flooded within a few hours as torrential downpours began shortly after gates opened and fans began streaming in.

That sinking feeling: One happy festival goer enjoys her mud bath, left, while this colourful character, middle, seems less impressed by the goo underfoot. Meanwhile someone else, right, looks as if he's had a bit too much of everything, not just mud


Campers hauling their bags and beers along the slippery thoroughfares were even told to pitch tents on hills to escape the worst of the wet conditions.


Marc Saunders, 31, from Bath, pitched his tent in driving rain with his five-year-old daughter Sam and wife Sarah.


He said: 'We say it's "go hard or go home". We're thrilled to be here, the place is magical - even in the mud.' Another early arrival, 19-year-old James Street, from Belfast, was caked in mud from head to toe after slipping in a puddle.

He said: 'I'm drenched, obviously. But it's great just to be here with my pals. Legendary place, legendary line-up. We're not interested in the headliners - there's so much more to see.'

The first of the main acts take to the Pyramid Stage tomorrow, when the wet weather is expected to return. Among a host of theatrical events at the site will be Glastonbury's own version of La Tomatina.


Other new elements for this year include The Spirit of 71 stage, with acts that played at the festival 40 years ago.

Beyonce, who fell in love with the Somerset festival after watching husband Jay-Z perform three years ago, is believed to have cleared her diary to party in Pilton over three days.


Rapper Jay-Z is even money with bookmakers Ladbrokes to join his wife on stage this Sunday.

When Somerset farmer Michael Eavis organised the first festival 41 years ago, he combined a typical pop festival with a more traditional harvest-type event.

So Glastonbury fans really are getting older! Gran proves she's no stick in the mud



By Daily Mail Reporter


Last updated at 9:18 AM on 24th June 2011


If you think music festivals should remain the preserve of the young, look away now.

Undeterred by the mud, rain...and throngs of youngsters, this grey-haired Glastonbury fan pushed what appeared to be a walking frame through the crowds yesterday.

She and thousands more had descended upon the 900-acre site at Worthy Farm, in Somerset, which was churned up by a second morning of torrential rain.


article-2007311-0CB25F2600000578-982_964x641.jpg Pensioner pop? A grey-haired woman pushes a walking frame through crows of young festival fans at Glastonbury yesterday


Many were left queuing to buy wellies, umbrellas and waterproof ponchos, but as you might expect from the older generation, this lady looked well kitted out.

The festival begins in earnest at 11am today when bands take to the main pyramid stage. Up to 170,000 are expected to attend

But although fans seem undeterred by predictions of another downpour tonight, the weather has already caused some problems. On-site medics have treated dozens – many of whom have hurt themselves slipping over in the mud.
