Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset
The UK's most famous festival, first held in 1970, celebrated the year 2000 with acts including the Chemical Brothers, Travis and David Bowie. A byword for alternative culture, it is now as much a part of the English summer as tennis at Wimbledon and the Henley regatta. More than 100,000 people will descend on festival founder Michael Eavis' farm for three days away from their everyday lives. Eavis will be hoping for a repeat of 1999's glorious weather - and not 1998's mudbath.
