After two cancellations, the gates of Glastonbury Festival opened today (video below). To celebrate, Emily Eavis welcomed the first people in, as well as spoke to Lauren Laverne on 6 Music. She sounds so full of happiness and relief:

“I’m still recovering, because the build-up has just been so long… We’ve never had a build-up as long as this, obviously. We’ve never all collectively been through such an extreme time together. So to actually be able to see people there, welcome them in and just watch them streaming in and just running to pitch their tents up and fill the fields, its just an amazing feeling.”

She went on to say “It was only really in the last few months that we were sure we were going to make it through… How certain can you ever be really at the moment? It’s just a miracle. We’ve made it happen. It’s here, everybody’s coming on to site… You can actually see from here that the fields that were green are now turning to multicoloured tents. That’s the best, you know.”
