Has Glastonbury become too corporate?

Glastonbury was once a rather sleepy affair.

Tickets would set you back £1 and revellers numbered a mere 1,500.

These days it is a huge five-day event with global stars such as U2 and Beyonce.

But with that expansion has come criticism that it has become too big and lost its charm.

So for 2011 the organisers are trying to take the festival back to its roots.
