• Festival headlined this year by Dua Lipa, Coldplay, SZA and Shania Twain 

The countdown to Glastonbury has got under way after aerial images captured a tent city popping up near the festival.

Over 200,000 festival goers are set to descend on Worthy Farm for this year's edition, which will feature headline acts including Dua Lipa, Coldplay and Shania Twain.

Aerial photos showed hundreds of tents set up ahead of the festival which starts on Friday.

The bird's eye view of the festival also showed several of the event's famous multicoloured tents.

Areas of the farm were transformed into a montage of colour, with one set of tents arranged in a heart shape above the year '2024'. 

This year's festival is headlined by Dua Lipa, SZA and Coldplay. Shania Twain will take the famous 'Legends' slot on Sunday afternoon.

Other acts set to play on the Pyramid stage include Keane, Cyndi Lauper, Paloma Faith, Olivia Dean and LCD Soundsystem.

The Other stage will host a range of stars including Camila Cabello, Jamie Webster and Bombay Bicycle Club.

With action starting on the main stages on Friday, dance band Faithless will start the festival on the Glade stage on Thursday evening.

For those not making the trip down to Somerset, the BBC is broadcasting over 90 hours of live coverage across the weekend.
