After a break of two years I was back at Glastonbury this year arriving in good time on the Wednesday, along with around 100,000 early birds. At least it was dry and sunny on the first day!
I spotted this bear at sunset on the Wednesday - I assumed he was either looking for or trying to avoid James Hetfield!
On the Thursday the party starts to get going although the official line up is still 24 hours away
These folk are getting relaxed with some yoga in the healing fields.
Then it is Friday and I'm off to the Glade to see Alabama 3
and what a great start that was albeit somewhat early
Alabama 3 Rev D Wayne Love
quickly from the sublime to the ridculous with Biggles Wartime Band
and as I left their set I bumped into this old fella..
Rudimental were for me one of the highlights. Unfortunately their set ended abruptly when a massive thunderstorm resulted in power being cut from all stages
Sunshine came after the rain resulting in this natural phenomenon. I wonder how many of these guys captured it...
Well I didn't have a press pass so had to be content shooting bands from the crowd. Despite torrential rain through the whole of their set I got a few nice images of
Jagwar Ma on the Park Stage
Jagwar Ma were one of my favourites this year, saw them twice. My other highlights were Arcade Fire, Jungle, Rudimental, Bryan Ferry and Alabama 3 and Kasabian. Although I rate them highly I was a little disappointed with Elbow.
And then of course there was Arcadia which seems to be creeping closer each year to where I pitch my tent.
