Glastonbury Trip, Day 5: The Music

We were up early enough to catch the Glasto milk truck (who knew? on Twitter as @GlastoMilk), and got milk and orange juice.

Then checked the weather to see major rain in the forecast. We cleaned up, packed rain gear, packed our other stuff in plastic, and left at 10:30-ish to trek to William's Green to see an amazing dance-music-playing-acoustic-guitar duo called The Showhawk Duo.

We ate breakfast (toasties) and got rained on as we made our way toward The Other Stage and caught the end of James (also amazing) while we walked. The Other Stage was PACKED! 

Scenes on the way:

Then we headed to the Pyramid Stage to hang out on the grass. And the sun came out. And it was glorious.


We stayed to see Two Door Cinema Club who came on just as the rain hit. It didn't dampen our spirits though, and they were really fun and danceable even with full rain gear.


Just as they finished, the sun came out and it got warm and glorious once more. We grabbed an early dinner and headed back to the tents to eat, drink, and change clothes for ZZ-Top, Foals, and Muse on the Pyramid Stage.


My face even got sunburnt:

On the way back, we realized how fortunate we were to be on high ground, as the rain now left muddy puddles and rivers of mud flowing down through the tents one level below us.

We got back to the Pyramid Stage for ZZ-Top:

More mud:

Foals and the ever-increasing sea of flags and humanity:

The sun went down. And Muse came on:

And my tiny little mind was completely blown. 

Time to sleep. More music tomorrow, including Turin Brakes.
