Last time it seriously baked on the run-up and opening days is I recall the last time it had widespread flooding.  They've done work to mitigate the risk, but ultimately if the ground is rock hard water will run off it, and Worthy is in a hollow.

Decent amount of rain this weekend to keep dust down

I've been to 14 Glastonburys, the last one being the continual shit down-a-thon of 2007.

Scored a worker band this week though, so I'm taking my 12 year old daughter to her first festival after school on Friday.

I never thought I'd want to go again but I'm actually a bit giddy now haha and intruiged to see how it's changed. I'll see any fellow junglists at the Glade for Andy C at 2310 on Saturday.

Hope everyone has a great time!

I thought it is going to be cooler, 18c ish, and cloudy rather than sunny, probably feel muggy. 

I’d much rather it be 18ish and cloudy, as long as it’s dry!

Can’t have a repeat of 2019 where I nearly passed out because of the heat. Forecast is looking near on perfect!

Don't think I've had a 'perfect conditions' Glastonbury yet, its either been boiling or torrential rain sometime or another over the weekend. The end of June seems to throw up extremes of weather. Yes the heat was draining, I didn't do half what I wanted that year.

Never been, never would ,unless it was a 5 star Motorhome I spose, like my home comforts too much . Each to their own though and if kipping in a field with thousands of strangers is your thing then great! Enjoy! :yawn:Hope the weather is good .

Just get yourself one of these:

It's tempting, but where would my butler sleep?

Never mind about your butler, Where's the private toilet which is guarded so that the Manic Street Preachers and 72k others can't use?

2013 was damn near perfect. 
 

To be honest it’s looking ok - 22-24 on the weds/thurs. Some chance of rain on Friday but not much, generally dry/cloudy/sunny and 18-20 over weekend.  If that rain goes away then it’s damn near perfect

I didn't do 2013:sad26:

But yes fingers crossed the weather will be a lot less extreme than most previous years

How much rain is there likely to be, it seems to be changing hour by hour. I need to know whether to pack wellies or not 😀

As I said to my then wife, we won't need wellies

Only to literally see every other person on the train down either carrying or wearing wellies

I got sun stroke and soaked that year
