WILL this year’s Glastonbury festival goers be reaching for their Hunters or their Haviannas this year?
Here’s what we know now about how the weather will shape up come the last weekend in June.
What’s the latest weather outlook from the Met Office?
The outlook for Glastonbury which kicks off on Wednesday, June 26, to Sunday June 30, is looking pretty good so far.
In fact, the Met Office is now saying it could be the hottest Glastonbury on record.
Temperatures are looking pretty warm with 27C forecast for June 28.
The showers that were forecast for Wednesday morning – when festival-goers will start to arrive – look to have cleared up and its now looking like a clear and sunny day.
Thursday and Saturday are also looking good for sun lovers although Sunday is now expected to be a bit cooler with temperatures a more manageable 20C.
Glastonbury festival will take place between Friday, June 28, 2019, and Sunday, June 30, 2019.
There was no Glastonbury festival in 2018 because it was a “fallow year”.
This means that organisers are giving the land at Worthy Farm, where the festival is held, time to recover from the excessive stomping of thousands of festival-goers.
Who is playing at Glastonbury 2019?
Here are the rumours and the confirmed acts so far:
- In November 2018, it was announced that Stormzy was one of the artists to headline the festival, making him the first grime headliner.
- In December 2018, it was revealed that The Spice Girls were also in talks to headline the festival which would round off their reunion tour. And in April 2019 Emma Bunton revealed they had been asked to appear.
