Wet weather, traffic clog up Glastonbury Festival arrivals

Revellers queue at the entrance of the Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset, Britain June 22, 2016

Grey skies and rain greeted revellers arriving for Britain’s Glastonbury Festival on Wednesday, with organisers asking drivers to delay their journey due to heavy traffic.

Tens of thousands of people are expected at the green-field music festival held in southwest England, where Adele, Coldplay and Muse are among the headline performers over the weekend.

“The current wet weather and ground conditions are still causing heavy traffic congestion around the … site. But we’re pleased to report that the picture is improving,” organisers said on the festival’s official ‘glastofest’ Instagram page.

“Our advice for those yet to set off by car/campervan is still to remain where you are for the time being, please … The longer you leave it the less you will have to queue.”

Those who had arrived at the Worthy Farm site in Somerset lugged belongings through muddy fields and set up tents on wet ground. The festival runs until Sunday.
