Heavy Rains Bring Glastonbury Chaos
We’re feeling sorry for Glastonbury-goers today. The biggest event in the festival calendar is in chaos right now due to terrible weather. The site is seriously water-logged because of heavy downpours and revellers have been stuck in 10-hour traffic jams.
It’s so bad organisers have taken to Twitter today to tell people not to go yet. The festival doesn’t officially start until Friday but people have been arriving early in anticipation.
As the MailOnline reports, more than 180,000 festival goers are expected to pour in over the rest of the week to see hundreds of acts including headliners Muse, Adele and Coldplay on the famous Pyramid Stage. But many looking to get a head-start endured a nightmare few hours as they became stranded in their vehicles - prompting the organiser’s warning. A statement posted on the festival's Twitter feed this morning said: “If you are coming to the festival by car or campervan, and have yet to begin your journey, please do not set off.”
The statement also urges anyone who has already set off to “stop somewhere safe and warm”. Festival-goers have been expressing their frustration on social media site Twitter, with one, Brooke Bromell, quoted as posting: “Worst start to glasto. Been in traffic since 7pm with no end in sight.”
Glastonbury, we feel for you right now!
