What is the weather forecast for Glastonbury 2024?

According to the Met Office's outlook from Wednesday to Friday this week, the day Glastonbury opens its doors "should continue largely dry with very warm sunshine". There is a small chance of a shower with rain moving through to the west on Thursday but "brighter, fresher" weather is predicted for Friday.

Friday 28th June:

On the day when Dua Lipa headlines, it is predicted to be a little cooler and "sunny changing to cloudy in the afternoon," with highs of 19 degrees and lows of 11 degrees. Don't think you can leave your suncream in your tent though, because the UV rays are still high.

The festival might be over on Sunday, but the bulk of Glasto-goers official pack up their stuff on Monday morning. According to BBC Weather, festival goers can expect highs of 19 degrees, lows of 10 degrees with "light rain and a moderate breeze".
