Glastonbury 2009

Over the weekend, approximately 190,000 people made their way to Worthy Farm in western England to attend the 2009 Glastonbury Festival. Attendees came to see performances at what is billed as "Europe's largest open-air music festival" on many stages over four days - headliners included Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and a reunited Blur. Rainy weather did little to dampen the mood, as attendees enjoyed themselves in tent cities, concert performances, dance tents, and the surrounding countryside of Somerset, England. Collected here are a handful of images from this year's festival. (33 photos total)

Volunteer workers sort rubbish for recycling at the Glastonbury Festival recycling centre on June 29, 2009 in Glastonbury, England. Every year the festival employs a team of 1,200 volunteers - who work for four, six hour shifts for a festival ticket - to sort what can be up to 2,000 tons of rubbish generated during the festival. The recycling of all the cans, plates, cups, plastics and food waste left by the thousands of people started on Friday and lasts a week - but the complete clean-up of the festival site can take until August.
