Emily Eavis has come up with an idea to keep the neighbours happy when this year's Glastonbury festival takes place: A silent disco. No, stick with her here: it's going to be a disco where everyone wears headphones. Her dad explains:

"By using headphones the music in the venue can go on well into the night.

"We have been toying with this idea for years, trying to think of ways to combat the noise limits.

"Now Emily has finally got something together so the party can go on later into the evening without infringing the noise curfew," he said.

"It's a first for us, and I will be interested to see how it works."

Pretty ineffectually, I'd guess, since the bulk of the noise coming from Glastonbury after dark is the boom boom boom from a thousand private parties around the camping fields, but it's worth a try. Let's hope they still have enough headphones left by the final night to make it work.
