The most world's biggest music festival offers a lot more than music. Set in the sprawling Somerset countryside stretching across 1,200 acres, Glasto offers a wide range of wonderful spaces for chilling out away from the big stages. Music lovers can also experience the delights of the creative installation Shangri-La and its Heaven and Hell themed areas and pay their respects to iconic Clash frontman Joe Strummer in the aptly named Strummerville where the campfire burns brightly in his memory.

Drop by the futuristic Arcadia to see reshaped military hardware, flaming explosions, sculpture, and performance, head to Beat Hotel for non-stop sets by in-house DJs, and enjoy some comedy in the Circus Tent. After all that, unwind in the the festival's chill-out field, appropriately named The Healing Field. When it comes to the weather, this year is no different to any other – be prepared for sunshine and rain. So of course, wellies are a must. See the line-up of the five main stages here.
