Rock, jazz, hip-hop, trance, indie and electro fans will all be catered for across the 900-acre farm in Pilton, Somerset.

The coveted Pyramid Stage headline slot has an eclectic mix this year.

Gorillaz - an animated, musical project which began life as a spin-off for Blur frontman Damon Albarn - will hope to impress the crowds on Friday.

On Saturday, Muse will bring Glastonbury back to its roots with their stadium-pleasing heavy rock.

Soul supremo Stevie Wonder closes the festival on Sunday night and is expected to perform hits from throughout his nearly 50-year career.
