 Glastonbury video of site still Instagram video

The clip was posted by Instagram user, Nicholas Fleming, who is thought to be working on-site at Worthy Farm.

With just two and a half days 'til Glastonbury Festival officially opens its gates, all anyone can think about is what the weather will be like.

But anyone who's ever been to Glastonbury knows the state of the ground at Worthy Farm can be just as dependant on the weather just before the festival as it is during the event.

A video posted on Instagram by festival worker, Nicholas Fleming, appears to show the effects of the wet June weather on the site so far... and if this isn't the result of a burst water pipe, it isn't looking good.


The water is literally bursting out of the ground. 'It's only a bit of rain!' #glastonbury #glastonburyfestival #glastonburycrew

Similar snaps from Glasto staff members seem to show the site in a similar state, with this picture posted by Matthew Smith also showing some rather water-logged looking grass by Glasto bins.

Meanwhile Sam Davidson has taken a sorry looking picture of what looks like the staff area, adding that "wellies are advised".

We bet Charlotte Sager-Wilde, who posted this picture today, is regretting her choice of suede ankle-boots now:

And this video, posted to YouTube by Brian Lancaster doesn't look great either.

Luckily for us, festival organisers and crew members like Nicholas should have wood chips at the ready to soak up all that water.

Watch his video, captioned: "Pickin' wood for the greater good" below...

Let's just hope they get to work before over 135,000 pairs of feet descend on the farm.
