Glastonbury 2014 Is Go! The Best Photos From Thursday At Worthy Farm

  • The waiting is over... Glastonbury 2014 is here at last. NME arrived on site yesterday (June 25) along with 92,000 punters, ready for a weekend of bands, booze and with any luck, a bit of sunshine. Here's the best sights we've captured on camera so far, as the party gets underway...

  • Walking backwards? You're just asking to land on your back in a muddy puddle there, pal.

  • Those three cans of mojito on the train to Worthy Farm always seem like such a good idea. Until you have to assemble your tent half-cut, that is.

  • There's a "Glastonbury: flying the flag for British music" gag in here somewhere.

  • Teamwork. That's what Glastonbury's all about. That and being accosted by strange, saucer-eyed men called Mystic Clive in the Stone Circle at 4am who wants to discuss "vibes, man..."

  • Just wait till they're slopped in four days' worth of dirt, looking like Swamp Things. Won't look so much like people then.

  • It all gets a bit Alice In Wonderland as you venture around Arcadia. Alice In Wonderland meets Ground Force.

  • According to Glastonbury's website, the Shangri La area's theme this year is a vast dystopian city that was destroyed by corrupt politicians, a deadly virus and violent aliens. I hate it when that happens.

  • No big deal, just some gravity-defying plants.

  • Michael Eavis sang the Rolling Stones at karaoke. Could have saved himself a few bob getting Mick Jagger and co to play last year and just headlined the Pyramid Stage himself…

  • Told you it was busy: this was the crowd for The 1975's secret set at William's Green, which was followed by a secret show from the mighty Metronomy. Not that much of a secret!

  • Kate Tempest was also in action, bringing her gritty, poetic rap to the Common's Rum Shack. She was watched by Dan from Bastille. Fun fact for you there.
