Glastonbury is back in business this year and the full lineup has been announced, so the biggest question remaining is whether the weather will be any good.

With Stormzy, The Cure and The Killers all set to headline the Pyramid stage, festival-goers are keen to know if the British summertime will deliver a beautiful setting for performances from the world’s best live acts... or if they’ll need to pack a raft and some wellington boots instead of sunglasses and shorts. 

The Met Office's Aidan McGivern previously said that this could be the hottest Glastonbury on record, with hot and humid air arriving from Europe predicted to push temperatures past the festival’s previous record of 31.2°C in 2017.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Temperatures are now expected to hit 24°C for those arriving early today (Wednesday 26 June), and 25°C on Thursday with sunny skies.

Temperatures will peak at 27°C on Friday 28 June, before a slightly cooler weekend as temperatures drop to 25°C on Saturday and 19°C on Sunday, still with clear skies throughout. 

Make sure you pack your wellies, however, as the site is reportedly muddy after rainfall earlier this week. And definitely take plenty of sunscreen, drink lots of water, and wear protective headgear to reduce your risk of heatstroke.
