England’s Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm in Pilton is almost as famous for the mud in the fields as it is known for the top-of-the-line talent found on any of the event’s multiple stages.
Although headliners like U2 or Morrissey won’t perform until tomorrow, the festival opened its gates more than 24 hours ago, giving folks plenty of time to make new friends, catch up with old acquaintances and get down-and-dirty in that wet-and-wild Glastonbury loam.
It doesn’t look as if the festival is going to run out of mud anytime soon. While the Weather Channel predicts cloudy skies for Friday, its latest forecast calls for rain Saturday morning. On the other hand, attendees will catch a break on Sunday. The forecast for Glastonbury’s final day is sunny with the temperature reaching 78 degrees – perfect weather to enjoy performances by Beyoncé, Paul Simon, Eels, Queens Of The Stone Age and TV On The Radio.
