Luxury tents from Rajasthan are the centre of attraction at the Glastonbury Festival, one of the high points of Britain's cultural calendar that catches nearly lakhs of people every year.

The festival, held in a farm near the town of Glastonbury in south-west England, is known for its music, features dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret and many other arts. Top artistes perform at the event.

This year, neighbouring farm owner Jenny Lederman charged 7,000 pounds per tent to stay in her Camp Kerala.

She imported 75 luxurious tents from Rajasthan, which at 28ft by 13ft provide the upmarket festival-goer with a touch of true luxury.

The king-size beds with Indian bedspreads and dressing gowns and slippers are laid out ready for when the client returns.

Lederman said: "I'd been to Rajasthan and the beautiful tents were the most romantic things I'd ever stayed in, so I bought them over here."

The 2008 festival, which was held from 27 to 29 June, reported to have cost 22 million.
