Michael Eavis sold a pair of wellies this evening for one hundred pounds as he told festival goers there is no need for them, we have sunshine all weekend.

The jubilant organiser was addressing press questions backstage when he began an impromptu auction, much to the surprise of the people in attendance.

Eavis informed the crowd that festival tickets had almost sold out because they were expecting visitors overnight from Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.

Apparently there were only a thousand tickets left on sale, and Eavis was confident they would sell out.

Figures from the festival estimate there are currently 85,000 people on site, with more expected to come tomorrow (June 27).
