Glastonbury 2003 has begun!

The Music replace Zwan on the Pyramid stage...

Worthy Farm is full to near-capacity already as the first bands including The Darkness, The Jeevas and Har Mar Superstar blow away the cobwebs from last night’s partying.

As exclusively predicted in this week’s NME, The Music will replace Billy Corgan’s Zwan on the Pyramid Stage. They pulled out earlier this month due to “family reasons”.

The weather in Somerset is generally good, with bursts of sunshine burning away the early morning clouds and showers. Also, the atmosphere is happy, with only 17 reported arrests so far, which compares to 26 at the same point last year.
