Glastonbury festival started as a free party in a Somerset field in 1970 and went on to become one of the world's most famous outdoor cultural events. So it's time for everyone actually living in the area to move out and everyone else from all over the UK to move in!
Tickets sell like hot cakes, nowadays they generally sell out within 24 hours of going on sale. In fact in 2005 112,500 ticket quota sold out in just 3 hours 20 minutes, leaving thousands of potential attendees frustrated.
Every five years the festival is cancelled, a "fallow year", in order to give the villagers and surrounding areas a rest from the yearly disruption.
