You've got your ticket, you've assembled a crowd and your wellies are ordered - all is well on the festival front. Right? Wrong.

While the announcement of the full Glastonbury 2016 line-up sparked great excitement earlier this year, the release of the set times has once again proved a cause for concern. As is the norm, they have thrown forth some brutal clashes.

Top of the bunch is Coldplay's set coinciding with LCD Soundsystem and Earth, Wind & Fire's while the previous night proves equally as troublesome (Adele, New Order and James Blake all share set times).

Below is our pick of the most frustrating clashes that, sadly, you're just going to have to deal with. After all, Glastonbury wouldn't be Glastonbury without them, right?
