Glastonbury organisers predicting good weather

Met Office experts aren't so sure though

Glastonbury organisers are “quietly confident” that the Somerset festival will see good weather for the first time in five years.

Festival supremo Michael Eavis has apparently told The Guardian that he’s hoping that the old adage “oak before ash, then we’ll only have a splash” is true, as this spring has seen an abundance of early oak leaves.

Organisers of the festival, this year headlined by The Verve, Kings Of Leon and Jay-Z, are planning for good weather by booking up hosepipes, ice cream sellers and suncream for the event.

A fleet of bowser tanks have also been booked to spray water on the fields to prevent excess dust at the event, set to run from June 27-29.

However, the newspaper also reported that a spokesperson for The Met Office stated that rain was “more likely to be either near, or above average” for the time of year.
