The 2016 Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts took place between 22 and 26 June.[1]

Weather

The weather was very wet on Wednesday 22 June with major traffic delays getting to the festival. Organisers said that rain and ground conditions had caused delays and urged people "not to set off".[3][4]

Festival founder and Worthy Farm owner Michael Eavis later commented "I've never seen mud like it in the whole life. This is worse than 1997...In all 46 years, it hasn't been as bad as this".[5]
