Revellers bound for the 40th Glastonbury Festival were warned to prepare for delays, as traffic mounted around the site on its opening day. Fans were arriving by the tens of thousands yesterday at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England, even though the music does not begin until today.

It also emerged yesterday that music legend Lou Reed is preparing to make a guest appearance with Gorillaz as they headline Glastonbury.

Gorillaz were drafted in as last-minute replacements for U2 after Bono underwent emergency back surgery.

Damon Albarn of Gorillaz said that the group had also taken a break from rehearsing to watch the match.
