Glastonbury Festival has revealed that in 2014 it raised nearly £2 million for charity. Over four days, you've got to admit that it's pretty impressive.

The festival worked with hundreds of local charities and international ones. As well as lesser known organisations, Glastonbury is also a big supporter of Oxfam, WaterAid and Greenpeace.

In a statement, Michael and Emily Eavis said "We are extremely proud to be in a position where we can support so many great causes. Thank you to everyone who comes to the festival for making this possible."

Rumours have already begun circulating regarding the festival's headliners in 2016, with Foo Fighters and, unbelievably, Spice Girls topping bookies' lists.
