The Daily Bump: All eyes on Glastonbury

Tis the season for festivals. Movement kick-started the summer of music marathons, followed by Mutek, then Sonar in Barcelona. Now, all eyes are on Glastonbury - one of the largest, muddiest, most infamous and longest running fests to date (it started in 1970, a day after Jimi Hendrix they say). There are 45 stages, from The Rabbit Hole to the Maggic Bubble with acts that run the gamut from Jamie Jones to Stevie Wonder and a bunch of performances we never knew existed (Saint Acid the Bang Face Hard Crew anyone?). About 150,000 people are expected to be attending. The fest kick started July 23 and goes through the 27th.
