Glastonbury Festival and the weather

Glastonbury Festival is famous for the variable weather conditions the event has seen. 2010 celebrated 40 years since the first Glastonbury Festival in glorious sunshine, however festival-goers suffered when the the high temperatures caused heat exhaustion and sun-stroke.

2009 wasn't such a sunny affair with torrential downpours hitting the festival site on the Thursday, accompanied by thunderstorms which illuminated the valley with lightning. 

However, the weather never puts off festival-goers as the attendance numbers for Glastonbury Festival steadily increase and tickets sell out faster each year.
