Two months of rain in two hours left festival fans facing another extremely muddy weekend. Luckily, the sun came out on the Sunday and 153,000 people basked in the warmth. Tickets sold out in 3 hours as the festival hosted The White Stripes, Razorlight, Kaiser Chiefs and Babyshambles. The Dance Tent was replaced with the Dance Village, consisting of eight different venues, all playing a different type of music, while The New Bands Tent was relaunched as the John Peel Stage in honour of the late, great supporter of upcoming new music. Michael Eavis made an extremely rare appearance on the Pyramid Stage with Sir Bob Geldof in support of the Make Poverty History campaign.
