Sitting up front with other guests, Eavis watched Starcrazy’s performance.

Eavis started the festival in 1970 at his farm in Somerset.

He is not, however, the first celebrity to be spotted in the county recently.

This country star, Daisy May Cooper, visited a Cornish garage sale, which you can read about here.

Presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who you can read about here, also visited – along with Line of Duty actor Stephen Graham in St Ives and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who spoke about staying in a Cornish cottage.
