The biggest festival in music is just hours from getting under way but it is never too late to make sure you have got everything covered for Glastonbury 2015, including last-minute travel updates, the line-up and that very important weather forecast.

More than 100,000 people are expected to flock to Somerset's Worthy Farm on Wednesday 24 June when the gates open to welcome another year of incredible performances alongside the weird and the wonderful.

Before you don those wellies, grab that tent and load up your crates of cider, go through the nifty IBTimes UK festival guide with a fine toothcomb to make sure you are clued up on everything you need to know before hitting Glasto...


With a line-up as huge as Glastonbury's, it is inevitable there will be some clashes with your favourite artists performances over the week. Here are some of the major acts you will not want to miss.

Green Fields

All the hustle and bustle around the Pyramid Stage can get pretty stressful at times, which is why organisers have built the Green Fields, where guests can take a break and get back to nature.

The area offers organic food, tribal dances and even an area for children, where they will find Yoko Ono's Peace Tower, a tribute to her late Beatles husband, John Lennon.

The Common

Feel like a tomato fight? Then head over to The Common area, where there are ritualistic paint throwers, a waterfall and tribal temples.

Glasto Latino

Festival-goers really will find every corner of the earth at Glasto with the Latino area bringing a slice of Latin America to Worthy Farm. In addition to salsa music and Latin dance classes, there will be a range of performances including a set from the prince of Afro-Latin, Ricardo Lemvo.


Yet again, the BBC has secured the rights to broadcast performances from Worthy Farm and will launch its coverage at 7pm on Friday 26 June during The One Show.

Coverage will then be shared across several of the BBC's platforms and channels including BBC2, BBC3, BBC4 and its iPlayer website.

BBC Radio 1 host Clara Amfo will also broadcast her radio show from the festival at 10am on the Friday morning.

In-depth details of the Glastonbury TV coverage can be found on TV Guide.

Festival glamping
Fancy glamping at Glastonbury? There may still be some of their Tipis available IBTimes UK


Putting safety first, Glasto has organised several Drop and Collect points in the surrounding areas so festival-goers can avoid walking along the busy roads leading to the site.

The service opens at 12.01am on 24 June and will remain so until 6pm on 29 June.

If you plan on travelling by coach, there should still be some spaces available and the same goes for the train too. For those arriving at Castle Cary Station, there is a free shuttle bus running directly from the station to the festival.


Of course, there is plenty of space for you to bring your tent but if you fancy glamming it up, there is also the option to indulge in glamping. Be quick though, as those tipis and campervans have most likely been snapped up fast.

Glastonbury Festival weather
Festival-goers at Glastonbury 2015 can rest assured there will be little rain over the five days BBC Weather


Unlike the Isle Of Wight Festival 2015, Glastonbury will be a hub of sunshine, according to BBC Weather, which predicts very little rain and temperatures hovering around the 20C mark.

Although, perhaps bring some sensible footwear for 26 June and 28 June when there may be small outbreaks of rain.

However you get there, whoever you see and whatever the weather, have a fun and safe Glastonbury.
