I can honestly say it's one of my favourite places to go. I have never witnessed any trouble, people are pleasant, kind and polite to one another.
Many people are mistaken that it's just another music festival, oh how wrong they are! It's a magical place to meet such a diverse set of people that maybe you wouldn't normally get a chance to interact with, try crafts or see things you would not normally be exposed too; I mean how does one normally get to see Sir Bruce Forsyth!
The site is pretty much in full swing 24hours a day and set over 900 acres, so is huge!
My favourite areas have to be the healing fields where you can try new alternative healing, practise yoga or even learn a spot or two about permaculture. Then their is Shangri-La for its year on year creativeness and outright wackiness.
Here's a few pictures from my stay this year.
It was a bit muddy on the Thursday!

I discovered two new bands that I would love to see again -
Tankus The Henge, a six piece band from London
International Jazz disaster
You can listen to them here - http://www.jazzdisaster.co.uk
I will put another post up later this week with what I wore.
