The Glastonbury Festival 2011 – Day One

GLASTONBURY, ENGLAND – JUNE 23: People make their way through the mud at the Glastonbury Festival site at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 23, 2011 in Glastonbury, England. Music fans had to brave more rain today at the five-day festival which opened yesterday. 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.
