Back by popular demand, it's our Glastonbury special. Neil Atkinson, John Gibbons, Stephanie Hengehan, Adam Melia and Mo Stewart all pick their ones to watch for all three days if you are heading to Pilton or just watching TV.

Mo is well into double figures on Glastonbury appearances so he gives his tips on enjoyment or survival as well as tales from the trenches. Adam and Neil also run through things they have learned from experience and error. 

The rain is bad and the traffic sounds a nightmare. So pull over in your camper van, get the bus driver to whack on The Rider, or just laugh into your PJs over images of people trying to push trolley's through mud. There are 15 great songs to enjoy this week, all to be featured at the farm. Enjoy!
