Take your wellies - showers are predicted for the next two days...
Organisers of this weekend’s GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL are crossing their fingers and praying for better weather after a day of showers so far at the site.
nme.com has just arrived at Worthy Farm, Pilton, where this weekend’s festivities are happening, after queuing for over an hour to get in because of the sheer volume of traffic. Our man on the ground told us: “It’s clearing up again now, but the weather’s just changing at the flick of a switch. There’ll be torrential rain for 20 minutes, then it’ll brighten up again.”
He also warned festival-goers setting off later today or early tomorrow to take wellies as there is some standing water on the site.
However, organisers hope the weather will clear up by the end of the festival, though showers are predicted over the next two days.

The three day event, which officially kicks off tomorrow (Friday), is headlined by Chemical Brothers, Travis and David Bowie and features a variety of other acts including Moby, Pet Shop Boys and Muse – and nme.com will be bringing all the news and reviews first.
