When it's at capacity, Glastonbury becomes the fourth largest city in the south west of England, which is just a tad overwhelming.

With live music, art, wellness, a cinema and kids' play areas, there's a lot more to this festival than just the bands, and food and drink are definitely not overlooked.

With hundreds of food and drink stalls there's plenty of choice - from Goan fish curry to mac and cheese.

Dietary requirements are also well catered for, with vegan, veggie and gluten free options plus kids' menus. You don't need to break the bank either, as hundreds traders will be taking part in the £6 meal deal.

Meal deal options could include dishes such as Thai curry and rice, katsu wrap, kids meal and a drink or a breakfast combo.
