A festival-goer smiles at the annual Glastonbury festival near Glastonbury, Somerset on June 22, 2011. Veteran Irish band U2 are set to rock the Glastonbury festival, the world-famous celebration of arts and music which gets into full swing Friday. Now in its fifth decade, the event has grown from a humble gathering of 1,500 people on Michael Eavis's Worthy dairy farm in 1970, each paying one pound and receiving free milk, to a giant five-day celebration of music costing 195 pounds for a basic ticket.
