Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis has collected his CBE from the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Speaking after the ceremony, the 72-year-old said he was "thrilled" to receive the award, and revealed the Queen asked him about his muddy fields.

"I said it's a very lovely farm and was looking splendid now. She said 'Good.'"

Mr Eavis first staged the festival at his Somerset farm in 1970, hoping to pay off his mortgage with the proceeds. It was attended by 1,500 people.

It cost £1 to get into the first ever Glastonbury, and Mr Eavis made a loss. Tickets in 2007 were around £150.

The line-up of the original event - then known as the Pilton Festival - included Marc Bolan and T Rex, and to attract punters Mr Eavis offered free milk from his dairy herd.

This year's Glastonbury Festival was attended by 170,000. Veteran rock band The Who and The Killers were among the headline acts.

Bad weather caused some of the fields to flood which delayed many festival-goers leaving the site.
