When you're in a crowd of 100,000 people and you need a wee, you either pee in a bottle and throw it to the front, or grab a cup and announce to the crowd via a "W" symbol that you're about to go! lovely!

135,000 tickets sold out in 1hr 40mins. The Pyramid stage holds 90,000 people, that leaves 45,000 people having to watch 'The Other Stage'.

That equates to 430 tents per hectare, though that's not very interesting.

3. Your house has a ceiling
