Glastonbury 2011

This weekend, more than 175,000 music fans gathered at Worthy Farm near Glastonbury, England, for the 2011 Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. The attendees, who set up tents and braved the mud, were treated to performances by U2, Wu-Tang Clan, Crystal Castles, Paul Simon, Ke$ha, and many more.
