1997 festival programme With heavy rain before and during the Festival, the site turned into a lake of mud. Although licenced attendance was 95,000, there were many people who got in through holes in the fence before torrential rain on the Friday night made many decide to leave on the Saturday. Many of those who did stay spoilt their own enjoyment by moaning about the mud rather than enjoying themselves.

BBC2 broadcast some of the fun live to the nation, leading many to think it's always that muddy.

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): Phish, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Levellers, Beck, Supergrass, The Prodigy, Republica, Nancy Griffith, Ray Davies, Cast, Dodgy, Ocean Colour Scene, Radiohead, Cheryl Crow, Van Morrison, Sting and others.

The Other Stage included (in no particular order) Catatonia, Kenicke, The Divine Comedy, Placebo, Ash, Reef, The Dharmas, Stereolab, Chemical Brothers, Kula Shaka, Super Furry Animals, Mansun and others.

The Jazzworld Stage included (in no particular order) Finlay Quaye, Lamb, Massive Attack, Galliano, David Byrne, The Herbaliser, Youssou N'Dour and others.

The Dance Tent included (in no particular order) Aphex Twin, DJ Rap, The Orb, System 7, Reprazent, Primal Scream, Bentley Rhythm Ace, Ninja Tune, Daft Punk and others.

The Acoustic Stage included Andy White, Steve Harley and Cocknet Rebel, Nick Lowe, Billy Bragg, Beth Orton, Bootleg Beatles and others.
