If you think you’ve seen Glastonbury from every angle, then think again: say hello to Lego Glastonbury.

The iconic toy bricks have been used to create a miniature replica of the iconic Pyramid Stage, which this weekend will welcome the likes of headliners Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian, as well as Lily Allen, Lana Del Rey and Dolly Parton.

The Lego Movie UK Twitter account posted a picture of the model on the first official day of the world-famous music festival; it is just the latest in a series of timely tweets that have also included images of a Lego Stonehenge for the Summer Solstice and a Lego World Cup.

Unlike the real-life event, Lego Glastonbury appeared to be a rain-free event - but back at Worthy Farm, glorious sunshine gave way to heavy showers on Friday, with thunderstorms predicted throughout the weekend.

However, revellers are unlikely to let the rain dampen their spirits, because their place on the 1,000-acre Somerset site is coveted by many. Around 120,000 tickets for this year's festival sold out in the record time of one hour and 27 minutes, with more than one million people registering for the event.

Arcade Fire will perform on the Pyramid Stage at 10pm tonight; the Canadian indie band, who recently performed a series of sell-out shows in London, have hinted that they may be joined by some local acts.

Multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed Parry told NME: "I can't tell you in advance but we may have Somerset artists."

The Lego Movie is available to download from 7 July.
