Revellers head to Glastonbury

Revellers descend on Glastonbury, despite the rain

Festival goers have descended on Glastonbury, prepared for another wet weekend, after rain hit the site last night.

Wellie boots were out in force after heavy showers fell and more rain is predicted across the weekend.

The main stages are set to open later today and host acts including Kings of Leon, Pete Doherty, Fatboy Slim and reggae singer, Jimmy Cliff will entertain the crowds. Perhaps Jimmy’s old favourite I Can See Clearly Now (the rain has gone) will drive the rain clouds away.

Aside from the music, campers can look forward to a silent disco, a planetarium, a whirlpool bath to wash away the mud and a replica New York nightclub.

The majority of ticket holders have arrived and are praying the mud bath of last year and 2005 will hold off.

The event has still not sold out, with some saying the choice of headliners, including Jay-Z’s slot on Saturday night, has put regular attendees off. Rumours abound that the rapper will be joined by his wife Beyoncé and Coldplay collaborator, Chris Martin.
