Some of the green schemes the festival uses includes solar and wind energy as well as biofuels, biodegradable tent pegs, car-sharing and biodegradable plates and cups.

Glastonbury Festival 2009 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton from 24-28 June with Radiohead, Bruce Springsteen and Blur rumoured to be performing.
