Glastonbury Festival 2005 Reviews
Glastonbury 2005: The Dance Village
Glastonbury just up-scaled its (already massive) dance tent to an entire village! Proof in the pudding that dance music isn't
dead - it's bigger and more vibrant than it's ever been.
Glastonbury 2005: The rest of the tents round-up
While impossible to cover it all, our intrepid back field roamer Peter Crowe searches out some of the best of the action from
the Acoustic, Cabaret, Comedy, Avalon, and Left Field stages.
Glastonbury 2005: Friday John Peel Stage
Walking though a quagmire of filth and shit and floating fruit, the first sound to eminate from the John Peel Stage is Franz
Ferdinand's 'Take Me Out' - by the looks on a most faces it should be 'Take Me Home'.
Glastonbury 2005: Saturday John Peel Stage
It's easy to be cynical approaching The Rakes; another gang of mockney Paul Epworth produced boys surely riding the current
Glastonbury 2005: Sunday John Peel Stage
Final day in the Peel tent and everyone's buzzing now the sun's out.
Glastonbury 2005: Friday Pyramid Stage
With thunder and lightning rumbling and crackling all over Worthy Farm, rivers pour down the hillsides. Many canvas-made structures
fall victim to the torrent - fortunately the Pyramid Stage isn't one.
Glastonbury 2005: Friday Other Stage
The Stone Circle is swimming, reservoirs gather at the bottom of every campsite, power is down, and rain is relentless. The
Dead 60s have been cancelled, Black Bud moved to Sunday, so it's up to Tom Vek to open the Other Stage.
Glastonbury 2005: Saturday Pyramid Stage
Did yesterday really happen? You almost have to pinch yourself to be sure. But as you squelch out of your tent it comes (quite
literally) flooding back...
Glastonbury 2005: THAT Storm
As one of the most impressive performances of the festival, Friday morning's spectacular storm deserves its own place in our
reviews... re-live it here, but wear your wellies!
Glastonbury 2005: Saturday Other Stage
A shift in the line-up means Sweden's The Deadbeats open the stage this morning to a decidedly soggy and skanky collective.
Glastonbury 2005: Sunday Pyramid Stage
Glasto awakes to sunshine and ecstatic gasps of relief as punters rush down to the stages to lap up the final day - and what
a day it's shaping up to be as the best is truly saved for last...
Glastonbury 2005: Sunday Other Stage
The terrain at the Other Stage has barely improved since Friday's armageddon-style downpour and strangely, despite thousands
of their band stickers everywhere, only a couple of hundred battle the swamps to catch inventive cockneys, Red Hand Band.
The Make Poverty History Moment
All performances at Glastonbury 2005 stopped on the dot of 4pm on Saturday, to allow every single one of the 158,500 people
in attendance to take part in a very special act of solidarity, in support of the Make Poverty History Campaign.
