I was actually there over the summer. It was great, although the weather kind of sucked. I think it would have been like a little like Woodstock for Americans, except nobody was naked, although I did see a bunch of teenagers peeing in the fields. It was pretty fun though, I got pretty drunk. There was some drugs going around as well, but I think everyone was pretty good at least from what I saw. There were some teenagers who had alcohol poisoning though. I also noticed how awesome the English police were. They were not harassing people, they understood this was a festive upbeat festival and they let people enjoy themselves. So, I just wanted to give an American thank you to the English police for being so awesome!
