Website of the Day: Friday 24th June 2005

>> Glastonbury on bbc.co.uk
As you’ll have heard flooding this morning seriously disrupted the start of this years festival and even put some of the BBC on-site compound underwater. As a result all coverage (online, on TV and on radio), is subject to disruption, but assuming the power supply in Pilton holds out, the BBC site will rermain your definitive guide to the weekend’s events in Pilton. BBC 2, BBC 3, Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio 4, BBC Somerset and BBC Asian Network will all be covering different elements of this year’s festival. Twelve sets from acts including New Order, Baby Shambles and Basement Jaxx will be webcast live on the BBC site, plus there’s a version of the site optimised for WAP. You’ll also find full line-up details and TV & Radio schedules for all the BBC’s Glastonbury coverage and plus information about this year’s red button coverage offering the best ever choice of bands for digital TV viewers.
Also worth a look:
Does what it says on the tin – really conveys the spirit of the event from a (damp) punter’s point of view!

Highly entertaining but possibly a bit fruity for sensitive dispositions! This isn’t being updated on-site so is more of a useful bookmark for Glastonbury 2007!
