I know that Glastonbury is the true home of the muddy weekend, but this was my first experience of it.

The rain thrashed Download, to the point where even the brave thought twice before going out in it. Us hardy photographers braved the elements though, donning ponchos and rain covers for our cameras. A few have reported kit failing, though mine seems to have fought off the wet pretty well.

I definitely came out in a worse state than my gear, with the bottom third of me completely covered in mud!
