The agreement builds on what the Guardian is already doing through its www.glastonbury98.co.uk Website, which is the first ever official Glastonbury website.

The site, launched last month, carries details of the line-up, weather news, a Glastonbury site-map, links to band Websites, survival tips and travel information, plus a history of previous Glastonbury Festivals.

A link to a specially-designed Radio 1 page will mean acts including Blur, Bob Dylan and Pulp can be heard by anyone in the UK or overseas unable to get tickets to the festival, now almost sold out.

The site is fully interactive and festival-goers will be invited to submit reviews during the festival as well as photographs after the weekend.

Visitors to the site can also donate online to official Glastonbury organisations, Oxfam, Water Aid and Greenpeace and find out how the proceeds are spent, as well as have the opportunity to win a pair of tickets.

In addition the Guardian will also be producing the mini-Guide free to all those attending the event, which it also produced for Glastonbury 1997.
