<strong>Glastonbury&nbsp;</strong><strong>Glastonbury, UK&nbsp;</strong><strong>Attendance: 175,000 per day</strong>

The festival began the day after Jimi Hendrix died in 1970. Attendance was 1,500 and entry was £1 including free milk from the farm. In 2010, more than 175,000 festival goers attended each of the three days it was held. Heavy downpours have become synonymous with the festival, at which model Kate Moss has been photographed in hotpants and Wellington boots. News of Michael Jackson's death reached the crowd and tributes celebrated his music throughout the weekend in 2009. 2011 tickets have already sold out.
