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.

Magic tea cup ride seats in Shangri La. As if Glasto could get any more magical.

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.
