I was at the event and managed to get a space to see the ceremony - which was very crowded. The picture above shows the stage just before opening ritual was about to begin.
The day continued with lots to do and see - a packed arena of stalls selling beautiful things and offering therapies and psychic readings, free performances on the stage, a programme of workshops and relaxation sessions at the Oasis of Sound (pictured below). I went to a chant and mantra session with Stewart Pearce (pictured right), which was wonderful.
