The annual Glastonbury Festival has opened its gates to the first of the thousands of revellers expected this weekend (27JUN03).

Eager festival-goers arrived early to make sure they secured a perfect pitch for their tents and managed to get their bearings around the enormous site in Somerset, England.

Multi-million album-selling bands including REM, Radiohead and Moby will headline on the main PYRAMID STAGE this year, while other bands performing include The Streets, THE Polyphonic Spree, Manic Street Preachers and Doves.
