Desperately seeking my mudman
Glastonbury 2007: A place of potential serious intestinal infection, yes, but a place of potential love? Apparently

Review: The Chemical Brothers
5.5 out of 10: Sunday, 10.40pm, Other. The fact that Rowlands and Simmons are obscured from view, combined with the bizarre but oddly captivating graphics, seems to destroy all human element in the show, which is actually something the pair were very good a providing back in the day.

Review: The Who
7 out of 10: Sunday, 10.05pm, Pyramid stage. On the day Gordon Brown has become leader of the Labour party, Won't Get Fooled Again has a resonance beyond its crashing power chords.

Festival style: this year it was all about the legs, says Laura Barton
Laura Barton: For the most part, the bare-legged look proved successful - that glimpse of flesh between wellington boot and poncho hem proved supremely heartening amid the muddy gloom and sulky skies.

Review: Kaiser Chiefs
9 out of 10: Sunday, 8:00pm, Pyramid stage. The Kaisers played all the hits from opener Every Day I Love You Less and Less to closer Oh My God.

7 out of 10: Sunday, 7pm, Dance East. Pascal Arbez's impeccable timing makes the efforts of Simian Mobile Disco on this very stage yesterday look just amateur.

'Oh good, it's raining again'
Charlie Brooker had never been to a festival before. In fact he'd never even been camping. So how would he cope with the full Glastonbury experience?
