The most visible change is the addition of the new “Glastonbury-On-Sea” pier, which was announced by Michael Eavis last month.

The pier is based in the Pennard Hill Ground to the South of the site, adjacent to The Park.

The festival have also begun sharing the line-up posters for each of its festivals, with Silver Hayes and the Field of Avalon among those dropped so far.

The Silver Hayes area, which is known for its dance music and DJs, was the first to share its line-up. It includes acts such as Lady Leshurr, DJ Cartier and MJ Cole.

Meanwhile, the Field of Avalon is set to be a nostalgia-fest, with the likes of Glastonbury-formed 90s Brit-rockers Reef, Bananarama, Morcheeba and The Magic Numbers all set to perform.

Dynamo and Basil Brush are among the acts confirmed for the Kidz Field.

Also confirmed to play the Somerset Festival are the likes of Liam Gallagher, Tame Impala, Gerry Cinnamon, Vampire Weekend, The Chemical Brothers, Snow Patrol, Two Door Cinema Clup and more.

Kylie will play the famous Sunday Teatime legends slot on the Pyramid Stage.
