The drizzle may be coming down on the heads of the 135,000 revellers but they are well prepared and their colourful encampments look delightful from above.

From the mishmash of the family camping fields to the neat regimented rows of luxury tents for hire and accommodation set up for Glastonbury workers the eye-catching sight is stunning.

The award-winning dairy farm has been transformed, as it is every year, into a riot of colour and the wonderfully higgledy piggledy shapes of the British countryside are ever more pronounced now it is tarpaulin and festival goers rather than cows that are dwelling there.

The sprawling site, which is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world, has a perimeter of around eight and a half miles.

Let’s hope revellers don’t get too lost in the dark because we’re not sure these aerial images will help them find their £15 pop  up from Argos.
