Glastonbury Festival 2024 Weather Update

The forecast is beginning to settle...

The latest Glastonbury weather forecasts are in – and it’s beginning to settle.

Glastonbury is the country’s biggest music festival, a world-leading place of fantasy and fulfilment. Located on Worthy Farm in Somerset, it retains a sense of magic that other events can’t reach, situated a few days after the Solstice.

As ever, the weather is a huge talking point. Record-breaking rainfall in May sparked fears of a wash-out, with memories of Glastonbury deluges of old circulating on social media.

In fact, despite media cliche forcing theQuietus to launch ‘Somme watch’ due to erroneous mentions of the First World War battle, the festival is gaining a reputation for sunshine – a recent poll found Glastonbury had the second most in-climate conditions of any event in the UK.

So, what is the Glastonbury weather forecast for 2024?

The gates for Glastonbury open tomorrow (June 26th) at 8am, meaning that this is the final up-to-date forecast we’ll receive before attendees arrive on-site.

The Met Office predicts highs of 27 degrees on June 26th; this drops to 18 degrees on June 27th, and 18 degrees on Friday (June 28th).

It rises back to 20 degrees on Saturday (June 29th), with the festival closing to sunshine and highs of 20 degrees on Sunday.

The BBC team are also predicting similar conditions – light clouds, a slight breeze, lots of sunshine, and a perfectly acceptable average of 20 degrees.
