With about 170,000 people at Worthy Farm in Somerset at the height of the five-day festival in June last year, Glastonbury is recognised as one of the biggest music gatherings in the world.
It may be the country’s biggest festival, but most of Glastonbury's record-breaking revenues last year were absorbed by sizeable charitable donations and upkeep costs.
Pre-tax profits fell from £764,000 in 2013 to just £86,000 last year, new accounts show.
Despite a £25.9 million gross-tax profit, the proceeds were almost all used to cover administrative costs and to honour a commitment to donate a sizeable slice of the proceeds to charity.

Hundreds of wellington boots, which were discarded at Glastonbury festival, have been donated to migrants in Calais.
More than 500 pairs of wellies were taken to migrants sleeping in the camp outside the French port after being sized and paired by a team of volunteers. They also distributed 2,000 unused rain ponchos and some first aid kits.
The project was the brain child of Liz Clegg who visited the migrant camp known as the Jungle. She worked closely with Association Salam, who helped hand out the recycled footwear.
