Socks under wellies: A Glasto trend

Glastonbury is famous for setting trends throughout the years, whether they are fashion or music, and it appears that this year another new one has emerged.

Hundreds of festival goers have been spotted on Worthy Farm sporting a clearly visible pair of funky socks underneath their equally trendy wellies.

With rain expected over the next couple of days the importance of a good pair of warm socks is likely to be high, as revellers wade through the festival's famous mud.

Festival goers have poured through the gates of the 11,000-acre Somerset site since Wednesday, eager to catch acts such as Mumford & Sons, Dizzee Rascal and The Rolling Stones, who are playing the festival for the first time in their 51-year history.

The festival gets underway on Friday, with the Arctic Monkeys headlining the opening night.

The Sheffield band, who recently announced an arena tour this autumn, will be expected to debut parts of their new album AM, which is released in September.
