Glastonbury Festival 2010: the line-up’s amazing, the weather’s going to be lush and it all kicks off tomorrow!

first of 177,500 music fans are already pitching their tents and, for
once, forecasters have predicted hot weather, with a single “isolated
heavy shower at some point.”

Happy news for those who didn’t
enjoy being soaked and having their tents float off in previous years.
Not so good for those who, erm, ‘enjoy’ the mud!
