Blog2005 ≫ Glastonbury Festival hit by rain

"A few unlucky ones just arriving at the site this morning - some unprepared for the rain in flip-flops and shorts - faced the prospect of pitching their tents in the storm"... now what sort of fool would do that? I must put those old pictures online!

BBC Radio 1's live coverage was abandoned, the weather cut the power to the Pyramid Stage (what about that big old turbine they had?), and lightning burnt a hole in a beer tent.

Here's how the Radio Times1 are representing the festival, then a still slightly cheery image from The Times2, and finally a stinker from Reuters3:,,208888,

Oof, has people swimming7, that's how bad it is...
