Editors' Tom Smith, VV Brown and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly have also had a coat of paint and have been snapped by photographer Rankin for the "blue face" campaign.

Through the campaign Oxfam, and the Glastonbury-bound artists who have signed up to help, are urging the Government to take more action against climate change.

They are asking fans to join in by painting themselves blue when they attend festivals this summer.

Video footage of the photoshoot will be shown on the Glastonbury Pyramid Stage between live acts over the weekend.

Little Boots said in a statement: "Doing nothing is not the answer to fighting climate change. Go blue, demand that the Prime Minister takes the lead in protecting the people of this beautiful planet and kiss goodbye to climate change. If everyone does their bit we can save the planet."
