Only at Glastonbury Festival will you find a crowd of around 70 people jumping and dancing to an electro-swing rendition of 'everybody wants to be a cat' - that was the Electric Swing Circus on the Spirit of '71 stage this afternoon.
The performance by Noah and the Whale was enhanced by everyone singing along, so you felt like part of the experience, even if you were sitting at the back.
MEMBERS of Sedgemoor carnival clubs have finished their stewarding at Glastonbury Festival and are now relaxing by the Other stage.
A large group made up of Griffens CC, Newmarket CC and Hillview CC are chilling out in the sun.
Liz Fell, of Newmarket CC, said: "We've been here since Sunday doing campsite stewarding, showing people where everything is.
"We do a number of festivals like Extravaganza and Pilton Party, but this is our biggest one. It really helps us with fundraising for carnival.
"Glastonbury just gets better and better every year. The acts have been amazing - like Rita Ora, Bastille and we can't wait to see The Rolling Stones!
"The Stones will make this year extra special."
This is a great example of just some of the random things you will see at the festival. First a magician dislocating her arm to get out of a straitjacket, then this....
POLICE at Glastonbury Festival say crime is lower than at the same point in the 2011 festival.
In total, there have been 160 crimes compared with 228 last time – meaning there have been 68 fewer people having their festival experience ruined.
Although there have been 89 thefts from tents, this is still 10% down compared to 2011.
Inspector Shirley Eden said: “We want people to be able to come here, have a great festival and not be overly worried about crime.
"Crime is down and as long as you take sensible precautions you should just concentrate on having a fabulous time.
“However, we are not complacent and officers will be continuing to patrol on foot, on bike and on horses throughout the rest of the festival. Whoever you are planning to watch tonight stay safe and have fun!”
The festival has taken on a lighter feel in the blazing hot summer sunshine and everyone is celebrating at the Other stage.

George Farley, from Bridgwater's Ramblers CC, tweeted: "Dizzie rascal was proper amazing! Gurt lazy Robbie Williams not showing up tho!! Arctic monkeys also something else! #neverforgettoday"
The scene on the camp site this morning. The queue at the back right is for the showers - yes there are plenty of hot showers dotted across the site, if you can stand the wait.
THE sun is shining down on the fourth day of Glastonbury Festival after a cold start on Friday.
Festival-goers braved the cold winds in shorts and wellies and danced until they dropped last night for big acts like Dizzee Rascal, Arctic Monkeys, The Vaccines and Rita Ora.
Tonight will see the act everyone's been waiting for - the Rolling Stones, who will blast classics from the Pyramid stage at 9.30pm.
Other great acts like Two Door Cinema Club, Noah and the Whale, Haim, Azealia Banks and more will attract swarms of crowds over this weekend.
THE Rolling Stones will make their Glastonbury Festival debut tonight (June 29).
The veteran rockers will step on to the Pyramid Stage at 9.30pm for a two hour 15 minute set.
Primal Scream, Chase & Status, Example and Ben Howard are some of the other stand-out acts performing today.
Yesterday, Arctic Monkeys, Dizzee Rascal, Jake Bugg and Rita Ora wowed crowds on an electric opening day.
