New this year was The Dance Tent, with old Gong hippie now System 7 man Steve Hillage giving advice.
The licenced attendance was again 80,000, although the fence was pulled down, in effect making it a free festival for anyone who wanted to join the fun.
It was broadcast on Channel 4, with some of it going out live.
Greenpeace, Oxfam and local causes received £400,000.
The Festival had all of the usual entertainments - music, theatre/circus, cabaret/comedy, cinema, the Green Fields, Kidz Field and the markets.
The Pyramid Stage featured (in no particular order): Simple Minds, PJ Harvey, Oasis, The Black Crowes, Page & Plant, Jamiroquai, The Cure, Orbital, Lightning Seeds, and others. Pulp replaced the Stone Roses at short notice, to give a career-making performace.
The N.M.E. stage was again the 'second' stage this year. Performers included (in no particular order) Goldie, Dodgy, Elastica, Sleeper, Supergrass, Shed 7, The Verve, Ash, Prodigy, Menswear, Skunk Anansie, The Shamem, and others.
The Jazzworld Stage included Incognito, Akasha, D-Influence, Red Snapper, Freak Power, Ultrasound, James Taylor Quartet, Gil Scott Heron and others.
The Dance Tent included (in no particular order) Eat Static, System 7, Darren Emerson, Plastikman, Fluke, Carl Cox, Massive Attack Sound System and others.

The Avalon Stage included Banco de Gaia, The Dharmas, Steeleye Span and others.
