Don't know how famous Glastonbury Festival is around the World but it's the biggest bi-annual music festival over here. Renowned for bad weather and floods today's opening was no exception as the heavens opened this afternoon.

Rufus Wainwright was an incongruous sight in red, white and blue stripey suit but although he looked more at home in a lounge bar he managed to pull it off.
Another group I have never heard of but loved was Gogol Bordello. Billed as Gypsy Punk they played as the heavens opened and had the crowd dancing crazily to a wild version of this song:
