With this year’s line-up, promised to be the best ever, tickets to Glastonbury have sold like hot-cakes. This year however, the festival famous for its classic rock, huge bands and vast quantities of mud, is doing its bit against global warming.

The 137,000 strong crowd of festival-goers will be given a an “I count” wristband, whose aim is to encourage people to take 16 simple steps to reduce their carbon footprint. The campaign is supported by the Stop Climate Chaos coalition of over 50 organizations, as well as the three main causes – Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid. Festival organiser, Michael Eavis said “this year we’ve put a lot of effort into focusing on climate change and the environment.” He hopes that Glastonbury will rally 100,000 more supporters to the cause.

Unofficial rumours state that Amy Winehouse, Arctic Monkeys, Bjork and Paul Weller are among the performers due to take the stage in late June. An official line-up is to be announced by NME  on the 1st June. Let’s hope Winehouse takes part in the recycling efforts. So far, her record ain’t so hot.
