Glastonbury 2019: 47 Things Everyone With A Ticket Is Thinking Right Now

Worthy Farm will open its doors to nearly 200,000 revellers on Wednesday.

There are just days to go till Glastonbury, but let’s be honest: nobody’s done enough preparation.

Here are 47 - yes, 47 - things everyone who’s going is thinking right now.

1. Which secret set rumours should I believe today?
2. Foals? Spice Girls? Could either rumour be true?
3. Why have I left all of this preparation so late?


4. How am I going to get last year’s mud off my boots?
5. Thinking: Did I clean the tent after last year?
6. Realising: Nope.
7. Why can’t they just put the Underground Piano Bar on the map?
