After all tickets sold out in record time (under two hours) last year, the Big Daddy of UK festivals lands once again in 2014, taking over a bloody huge chunk of Somerset with music, mischief, hippies, healing and a lot of cider. It's difficult to convey quite how vast Glasto is, with whole worlds of activity taking place outside the arena as well as an awe-inspiring musical lineup.
Arcade Fire revealed they'll be headlining the Friday night and Dolly Parton performs on Sunday, but as ever the real fun comes from listening (and adding) to the rumour mill that goes into overdrive in the run-up to the festival. Lily Allen claimed she'll be playing, and other names being tossed playfully around include Kasabian, Metallica, Outkast, Foo Fighters and, most excitingly, Prince, plus many more. Bowie...? Pft. As if. But hey, you never quite know with Glasto.
You can hear everything from pop to reggae to art rock to dubstep to metal to folk to techno at Glastonbury, so bring an open mind, wellies and a sense of humour, and prepare for mud and madness. And if you haven't got a ticket – better luck next year.
