Glastonbury 2022 is officially underway as the first fans enter Worthy Farm for the music festival.
It is the first Glastonbury to take place since 2019 after the Covid-19 pandemic caused the 2020 and 2021 editions to be cancelled.
Over 200,000 music fans are expected to attend the Somerset festival which is headlined by the trio of Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar.
The stacked line-up will also include performances from the likes of Sam Fender, Lorde, Foals, Noel Gallagher, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Diana Ross, Haim, Pet Shop Boys, Little Simz, Fontaines DC, Glass Animals and Phoebe Bridgers.
The gates for the festival opened at 8am this morning and ticket holders have been arriving at the site since yesterday.
Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis was on hand to welcome the first guests onto the festival site and promised “the best show we’ve ever done”.
The weather forecast for the festival is a mixed bag, with bright sunshine and light rain both expected for most of the weekend with temperatures reaching 25 degrees.
Festival goers have been warned to make alternative travel arrangements if they were planning on coming to the festival via train.
Because of the ongoing train strikes across the UK, rail services have been disrupted across the week and into the weekend.
