The UK’s most iconic music festival, Glastonbury, is less than a week away.
Katy Perry, Stormzy, Dua Lipa, Shaggy, The xx, The National, Barry Gibb, Major Lazer, Haim, and Kris Kristofferson will all be performing too.
Glastonbury’s weather is always a concern for festival-goers who fear a repeat of the infamous 2005 washout and last year’s torrential downpours. Here’s what to expect from the Glastonbury weather in 2017.
Current forecasts are showing a scroching day for arrivers with highs of over 30°
Thursday also promises to be a dry day, with highs around20° but a slightly windier gust during the day.
Cloudy weather will dominate the day, with the odd bit of wind. But no rain, just yet.
There’s likely to be thick cloud and a spot of rain first thing in the morning, but should remain dry for the rest of the day. A cloudier and chillier evening is to be expected.
Some clouds on Sunday and it may be the coldest day of the festival.
Cooler temperatures of 17° are expected as campers leave the site, but there’s a chance of the occasional spot of rain in the morning.
Meanwhile, estival organiser Emily Eavis has recently hinted that “a really big” secret set will be taking place at this year’s Glastonbury. Here’s who could be playing the secret sets at this year’s festival.
It has also been announced that Hacienda Classical and the Manchester Camerata will be opening the Pyramid Stage on the Friday of the festival.
The festival takes place at Worthy Farm in Somerset from 21 – 25 June.
