Thousands of revellers sporting wellington boots and winter coats are beginning to arrive in Somerset as the Glastonbury Festival gets under way.
Rain-hardy fans battled through the drizzle and mud to get to the campsites on 900-acre Worthy Farm for the start of Britain's biggest and best-loved music festival.
The heavy rain and soft, marshy ground did little to dampen the spirits of those attending as they manfully marched through the elements.
More than 177,000 people are expected to attend the festival to see U2, Beyonce, Coldplay and others perform.
Unlike last year's sun-drenched festival, music fans have packed woolly jumpers, waterproofs and wellies as they brace themselves for autumnal temperatures and regular downpours.
