An expanded festival returned in 1992, and this proved a great success.
This success was carried through to 1993 which, like 1992, was hot and dry.
These sound systems would play loud, electronic acid house music 'round the clock, with the largest, the Hypnosis sound system, rivaling the volume of some of the official stages and running non-stop throughout the festival.
The biggest festival yet was held in 1990; however, the day after the festival ended, violence – between the security guards and new age travellers (the so-called Battle of Yeoman's Bridge) – led to the organisers taking 19 off to rethink the festival.
Films and albums recorded at Glastonbury have been released, and the festival receives extensive television and newspaper coverage.
Since 1983, large festivals have required licences from local authorities.
This led to certain restrictions being placed on the festival, including a crowd limit and specified times during which the stages could operate.
The crowd limit was initially set at 30,000 but has grown every year to over 100,000.
That year saw a wet festival with considerable rain; Worthy Farm is a dairy farm and what washed down into the low areas was a mixture of mud and liquefied cow dung.
