ALL YOU’RE GOING to hear about this weekend is Glastonbury. Hundreds of thousands of people are flocking to the festival, which officially kicks off tonight with Radiohead as the big headliners.

Bjork, Arcade Fire and The Who were some of the famous names on the bill, but who else was there? Let’s see.

Nu rave was all the rage

Everyone was wearing Lycra and lamé and American Apparel in 2007. No one epitomises this more than Lovefoxxx, or maybe…

The Klaxons! Drinking a pint bottle of Bulmers/Magners. Fair play.

Bands in 2007 had a lot of unnecessary punctuation to contend with, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly being the most annoying instance of this.

Nothing says more about the music industry in 2007 than this. Happy Glastonbury, everyone!
