The 34th annual Glastonbury Festival kicks off Wednesday with a stacked lineup, featuring headlining sets from MuseAdele and Coldplay. The festival runs from Wednesday all the way through Sunday, June 26, with Coldplay, LCD Soundsystem and Earth, Wind and Fire closing out the festivities on the three main stages.

Tickets for the festival sold out within 30 minutes when they went on sale in October, and the resale market has been cutthroat, but those who managed to grab them are in for a truly blissful weekend.

The grounds are also already extremely muddy, according to most reports. Pack golashes, ponchos and tarps and prepare to become yet another iconic Glastonbury mud person.
