As the 34th Glastonbury Festival came to an end this morning, festival goers did not have an easy exit as cars had to be towed out of the muddy car park.
Dozens of vehicles were rescued by tractors unable to move through the mounds of mud.
Dubbed the muddiest year so far Festival Organiser, Michael Eavis apologised for the adverse venue conditions, which caused the fields to be turned into quagmires, and said its the worst he’s seen in 46 years.
The Festival was a bit of a mud bath as torrential rain hit Somerset days before the launch and continued throughout the weekend.
The 12 hour traffic delays gave no one hope for a smooth exit but didn’t stop anybody from having a good time as headline acts such as Adele, Ellie Goulding, and Coldplay drew in massive crowds.
Adele, with a touch of stage fright, put on an emotional set that captured the audience.
Stating at the end: “I didn’t want to come on and now I don’t want to go off.”
Twenty-year-old Alice Cameron from Aberdeen said: “I have never seen so much mud. Everywhere you stepped your foot just seeped into the ground.
“Adele was phenomenal. It was so emotional and touching. I felt completely in the moment while watching her. ”
135,000 festival goers picked up and left the site leaving it a vast sea of muddy litter estimated to fill around 500,000 sacks of rubbish.
With cleaners and volunteers already scouring the area Worthy Farm will be scrubbed up in no time.
