This year was one of Glastonbury's wettest, with more mud than you could shake a veggie burger at. Mud surfing and mud wrestling were popular sports, although some festival goers developed Trench Foot, a condition last common in the mud-filled trenches of the First World War. The site also had its first proper bank and the dance tent had grown in size.
Somehow Tony Bennet managed to keep the suit he performed in a pristine shade of white, although most at the festival had resigned themselves to layers of mud, blankets and wellies. Even John and Jo, broadcasting for the BBC, were practically clothed and spattered with brown.
Robbie Williams won several new fans with a rousing sundown set, whilst Bob Dylan and Blur provided more traditional Glastonbury fare. Tori Amos also played and a few derogatory comments from John earned him a year's worth of "letters written in green ink" from outraged Amos lovers.
