A photograph taken during the day at Glastonbury Festival. The image shows a group of festival goers walking across a grassy field. In the foreground of the image are two young women; the women to the left is wearing a cream coloured crop top, blue jean shorts, black wellington boots and holds a beverage can in her right hand with a green jacket draped over her right arm. She is wearing sunglasses and has long brown hair. To her right, the second woman is wearing a cowboy hat, a blue tshirt, blue jean shorts and black wellington boots. She has a brown bag around her right shoulder and has her arm up, waving towards the camera. Behind the two women, groups of people are walking and sitting in the grass. In the background there are large letter signs that spell out GLASTONBURY in rainbow colours.
