Glastonbury 2014: Droves of excited Brits storm England's most popular music festival despite persistent rain and thunderstorms

The Kaiser Chief's kicked off a rainy but electrified Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts with a surprise performance on The Other Stage Friday

The 5-day festival, which takes place near Somerset, England, is expected to attract 200,000 -- up from 1,500 during its humble beginning in 1970.

Despite a few black clouds -- including the death of an elderly woman, who is said to have died of natural causes in her tent overnight, and the unrelated death of a 26-year-old, who 'suffered what police suspect was an adverse reaction after taking the illegal drug ketamine,' according to BBC News -- Britain's most annually-anticipated music festival is forging ahead full-steam.

Performances Friday will include Blondie, Lily Allen, Paolo Nutini and canadian band Arcade Fire later Friday night. See the full lineup here.

Always tickles me that people will set in the rain and freezing to watch another dope head sing but wouldn't take the garbage out for there mother on a rainy day. What a joke these people are, societies misfits.

There was Woodstock and now there's laughing stock. All those English accents in one place, how nauseating.
