Q's Queen's Head was rammed full this evening as Glastonbury's musical treats kicked off. As the first main stage to swing into operation at this year's event, there was a huge crowd baying for tunes with the tent packed to capacity and more than a thousand more people at the fringes trying to catch the early acts.
Glasvegas and Santogold (pictured) were among those to benefit from the huge interest in the Queen's Head and the "up for it" crowd happily tolerated the latter's slightly late appearance after getting stuck in traffic on the way to the Somerset site.
Earlier in the day there was a note of hilarity as Dead Kids stuck it to the man by throwing their bongos into the crowd as they wound up their set - only to find a few moments later that they needed them back. However, the instrument was by that point long gone.
Many festivalgoers reported a mellow mood to the festival, possibly thanks to a day of largely dry weather punctuated by only a few drops of early evening rain.
