Following the sheer chaos of day one of Glasto, traffic is now flowing but it could still be a slow commute so it is best to keep checking the festival's official Twitter for updates and the travel section on their website for the best routes to the site.
Glastonbury would not be the same without a little rain guaranteeing a very muddy climate. Friday looks set to be fairly dry and cloudy with a small chance of rain in the late afternoon while Saturday and Sunday will follow suit. Temperatures are predicted to hover at the 18C mark across the whole weekend.
WHERE TO WATCH
The BBC will host coverage of the festival for their 20th year but with BBC Three no longer available on TV, it will look a little different this year. BBC One, Two and Four will present more than 25 hours of coverage featuring the highly-anticipated headline performances. BBC Radio 1 and other stations including 1Xtra, Radio 2 and 6 Music will also present live from the festival.
