The music begins at the 40th Glastonbury Festival with revellers arriving in their thousands - hopeful that the forecast of a sunny and warm weekend will be spot-on.

Michael Eavis opened the doors of his 900-acre farm in Pilton, Somerset, on Wednesday when nearly half of the 140,000 ticket holders were believed to have arrived.

Prince Charles will visit the site to commemorate the work charities linked to the festival do, as well as mark the festival's 40th anniversary.

Wednesday saw large volumes of traffic build up around the site, as early-birds tried to battle their way in.

A line-up of established and emerging acts will take to the Queen's Head, WOW, and Glade stages, among others today (June 24).

But the line-up proper begins on Friday with Gorillaz, Dizzee Rascal and Florence and the Machine appearing.
