Lucky campers welcomed David Beckham to his first ever festival on Friday afternoon after the footballer planted a tree at a social housing development in the nearby village of Pilton.
Beckham and his 18-year-old son Brooklyn arrived in the village with Hollywood actress Liv Tyler to lend his support to a project that is close to Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis's heart.
Standing on the doorstep of one of the new houses, Beckham explained that he was "slightly nervous" about embarking on his first festival adventure.
"Believe it or not, I'm 42-years old and it is my first festival and first time here," the former Manchester United player said.
"I'm excited and slightly nervous because I don't know what to expect apart from the great acts and people having fun."
Beckham hadn't managed to convince his wife, fashion designer Victoria, to join him at Worthy Farm but said he was looking forward to being shown the ropes by Brooklyn, who "has been to a few festivals before so he's well-prepared."
"It's nice to do it with him," the father-of-four told a handful of locals and press who had come to see the star, who said he was most looking forward to watching Radiohead's headline set tonight.
Beckham isn't sleeping under canvas while at Glastonbury, however: "I'm not in a tent, much as I'd love to be in a tent I'm not that prepared," he said.
Back on the festival site, Beckham was able to catch the lay of the land from the top of Big Ground, the campsite that looks over the Pyramid Stage, where campers found him a surprising sight.
"We were just sitting here and saw him at the top of the hill," explained Mark Edmunds, from Bournemouth, who was with his teenage son and daughter at the festival. "We went over and said hello, and he was very nice."
Brooklyn, who has recently embarked upon a photography career, wasted no time in documenting his festival experience on Instagram, posting a picture taken in the wing mirror of the Land Rover Defender he was driving on site with the caption "Glasto" and a photograph of the Pyramid Stage to his account.
