Situation 'could improve'

Rain is falling on Glastonbury although forecasters claim the outlook could improve.

Glastonbury is synonymous with mud. The Worthy Farm event is closely tied to images reminiscent of the Somme, with the fields of Somerset regularly churned up by the feet of countless thousand music fans.

However the past few instalments have seen Glastonbury bask in glorious sunshine. With the rain clouds circling overhead, many are fearing a return to the swamp-like conditions of past events.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, a spokesperson for the festival explained that while it will be wet conditions should improve as the weekend progresses.

"It's not going to be a typically wet Glastonbury but it won't be like last year's either. We're expecting some heavy showers for the first two days but it will gradually improve and while Sunday won't be that bright it could be quite warm."

Meanwhile, the Met Office have revealed their latest weather forecast. The festival has started on a damp note, with puddles already forming despite the site only being open to the public for a few hours.

Weather will be mixed until Friday, when the festival officially opens. Saturday (June 25th) is set to be warm and humid, although the day will be interrupted by the odd heavy shower. However Sunday (June 26th) will apparently be a great day for weather, with high temperatures and frequent sunny spells predicted.

Headliners this year include Coldplay, Beyonce and U2 with performances expected from Morrissey, Queens Of The Stone Age, Elbow and more.
