Glastonbury Weekend Forecast: Mud-Baths And Fun | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

Though festival-goers enjoyed Thursday’s blistering sunshine, the forecast for this weekend will not please Daily Dust readers on-site.

A spokesman for weather forecaster Meteogroup warns music lovers to brace for “torrential” thunderstorms, with brief periods of sunshine.

Storms and flash floods wreaked havoc on the 900-acre site in 2005, washing away tents and soaking visitors.

Glasto spokesman John Shearlawsaid, “There are 30,000 people on site now, working flat out to get everything ready.

What can you do? The festival isn’t God.”

This year’s event sold out quickly and up to 60,000 revellers had arrived by last night, ready for what many have hailed the Somerset festival’s best line-up in 39 years.

Critics have hailed this the year of “dinosaur rock”, a reference to the age of many acts.┬áHeadliners include Blur, Bruce Springsteen (59) and Niel Young (63) – veterans Status Quo, Tom Jones (68) and Tony Christie (65) swell the event’s ranks.

So let’s give love to the weather gods and have a festival in the mud-bath that we all look forward to each year :)
