Nicholas Waller A performer's eye view of Glastonbury (39) RE: A performer's eye view of Glastonbury 30 Jun 09

I went to Glastonbury in 1995, when I felt it was like some kind of post-apocalyptic Mad Max refugee camp-cum-sonic-light-show. This year I restricted myself to watching on the telly and standing on top of Glastonbury Tor at sunset on Sunday to see what it looked like from a distance (I live only a few miles away).

It looked pretty good from up there - here's a picture collage - and a lot bigger than the nearby cathedral city of Wells, also visible from the Tor and rather dim by comparison, which has a population of 10,000 and so about one-eighteenth the population of the Festival (which I read somewhere was comparable with the population of York, and twice what it was in my day).
