Summer Music Festivals: Will Glastonbury Be Soggy This Year?

Eight days to go til the 2008 Glastonbury Festival kicks off in Somerset, England on June 27. This year, the line-up includes James Blunt, The Verve, Crowded House, Kings of Leon and a long, long list of others.

They're expecting around 140,000 people, so you won't be on your own. Camping out at Glastonbury can get soggy, so pray for a good weather forecast or be boy-scout prepared.
