With the gates to Glastonbury Festival 2023 soon to open to thousands of revellers, what does the weather have in store?

The Worthy Farm site opens tomorrow morning (21st June) at 8am, as lucky ticket holders head to Worthy Farm for a weekend of top quality music, featuring the likes of Sir Elton John, Guns N’ Roses, Arctic Monkeys, Lewis Capaldi and many many more. 

But will attendees be putting on sunscreen or raincoats?

Well, maybe both.

As of this morning (Tuesday 20th June) the weather forecast for the week is slightly mixed, with high temperatures expected (hooray!), and maybe also a little bit of rain (boo!).

If you are heading to Worthy Farm on Wednesday then the Met Office forecasts sunny intervals will change to cloud by lunchtime. There’s a chance of rain too. Highs of 22C.

Thursday is set to be mostly sunny, with highs of 22C.

The first main day of music, Friday, will be dry, if a little cloudy, with some sunny spells in the early evening. A very slight chance of a little rain, according to the BBC. Highs of 24C.

Saturday is set to be sunny, but maybe quite humid. It’s going to be a hot one too, with highs of 25C, so be sure to stay hydrated, slap on some sunscreen and wear a hat.

Sunday is looking humid, with a low chance of precipitation in the evening, and highs of 24C.

With only days to go until the festival, Arctic Monkeys have cancelled their show in Dublin tonight due to illness. In a statement, the Sheffield band said: ““Alex [Turner, lead singer] is suffering from acute laryngitis, and following medical advice, has been ordered to rest.”

It is not known at this stage whether this will affect their Glasto performance.

Meanwhile, our own Ricky Wilson has shown his support for Lewis Capaldi, after the singer-songwriter was forced to cancel all commitments ahead of his performance at the festival.

Glastonbury Festival takes place from 23rd - 25th June at Worthy Farm.
