Glastonbury 2016: Things Have Got Even Muddier Down On Worthy Farm

It's an inevitable fact of life that if you go to Glastonbury, you will return home caked in at least 10 inches of mud, dirt and any discarded beer cans and cigarette stubs that get trapped in between. Don't let that kill your vibe, though - just go with it and you'll still have the best weekend of your life. Until next year, that is.
