Hundreds of thousands of festival goers have put on both their best summer outfits and sunscreen lashings as they prepare to be entertained by Stormzy and George Ezra at Worthy Farm in Somerset.

Ordinary participants in the festival are used to being welcomed by mud slides and humid conditions, but this year many have been able to relax and slip off their boots while boosting their tan.

Croydon-born grime artist Stormzy is currently second in the charts with his hit Vossi Bop and will make music history as the first act to headline the event this year.

Stormzy says he & # 39; is overwhelmed by emotions & # 39; as he prepares to become the first black British solo artist to headline Glastonbury.
