The music festival’s south-east corner is where many of the best ‘When I was at Glasto...’ anecdotes are born, and those lucky enough to have a ticket to this year’s event will be submerged into the world of ‘Politics, Sholitics’.

Is it definitely too early to start packing?

A statement from the organisers explains: "This year's story aims to help people connect with the political process and demonstrate that politics can be for them and by them.

"After the flinchingly realistic horrors of last years Corporate Hell, this year Shangri-Hell has been occupied. Every office has been taken over by some of the 99% desperate for change. Each Nano-venue has become a political party, and everyone here has a point to make.

"There is nothing too silly or too serious to be said, there is only the process of activism, the skies filled with banners, the streets packed with protesters and placards."

Last year’s Corporate Hell saw Shangri-La’s maze of venues transformed into a dystopian nightmare, by a huge team of artists who worked for months to plan and construct the part-art installation part-rave area.

The final tickets for this year's event sold out in minutes earlier this month, and fans will be treated to performances from artists including Foo Fighters, Mark Ronson, FKA Twigs, and the ever-controversial Kanye West.

However, there is one rather huge gap on the line-up poster, where a third headliner should be.
