You're not just preparing for a music festival; you're preparing for the music festival. Glastonbury's just a few weeks away, with Kanye West, Foo Fighters and The Who heading this year's all-star bill at Worthy Farm in June. But while the line-up is predictably excellent - in addition the headliners you'll be able to watch (deep breath) Florence And The Machine, Run The Jewels, Patti Smith, Super Furry Animals, Alt-J, Fat White Family, Kate Tempest, Suede, The Vaccines, The Maccabees, Courtney Barnett, Alabama Shakes, Catfish And The Bottlemen and lots, lots more - surviving Worthy Farm itself can be a trickier proposition. Which is why we've asked NME readers who are also hardened Glastonbury veterans to dispense their wisdom and give their survival tips for newcomers: the essentials you need to bring, the pitfalls you need to avoid, and all the other information which makes for a blinding festival weekend. Learn from the best.
