What To Wear If Glasto's A Washout

We don’t know how to break this to you, but it looks like Glastonbury is going to be a washout. Not the line-up, mind you (that's looking fantastic) — but the weather. Yup, it’s going to rain cats and dogs all over this famous festival.
As this writer can attest, Glastonbury can be disastrous if one isn’t fully prepared for every weather-based eventuality. (Seriously, you don't even want to know about my Glasto 2006; all I will say is that it involved gold ballet slippers and trench foot.) So, for you lucky ones with a golden ticket to this week’s festivities, it's time to get suited and booted with the very best of waterproof essentials. Click through for your must-pack items. Happy camping!
