In celebration of this year's theme of 'Summer of '69: Peace and Love', festival goers today were surprised to see John Lennon, Elmo and Neil Armstrong accompanied by a female 'hippy' exploring the site.

 

Posing for photos against various on site backdrops and landmarks in the festival site, in tribute to key events from 1969: the release of the Beatles' 'Abbey Road', the first man on the moon, Sesame Street's 50th anniversary and the Summer of '69 theme, the four characters caused quite the stir!
