1. SHANGRI HELL’S CORPORATE HQ

No Glastonbury experience would be complete without a trip into the unknown wonderland of Shangri-La. The whole theme of the area this year is activism, and attendees are encouraged to make placards, tag the walls and stage demonstrations.

The whole epicentre of the operation is held at Shangri Hell's occupied corporate headquarters – the hexagonal maze of nano venues has been occupied by political parties such as USLip (United Shangri-La Independence Party), the Monster Raving Party, the BNP (Beautiful Naked People) and the Shangrillati.

Throw in daytime food at the Deluxe Diner from some of the best street food vendors in the country, as well as performances from Norman Jay, Dusky B2B with Skream, J.E.S.U.S, the Radio 1 Essential Mix with Friction, and you've got a heady mix of fun that could practically be a festival in its own right.

2. THE GIANT SLIDE

There is always all manner of things to marvel at in the Greenpeace field, from the world's top skaters to fully functioning toilets and showers, however this year they also have a stomach turning 6.5-metre drop slide off a trawler ship as part of a 'Bycatch' campaign. You're going to have to dress up as a fish to join in the fun, but aid in that department will be provided. You'll be hooked.

3. WHEEL OF FOUR TUNES

Glastonbury is almost unmatched in the volume of things to see late at night, so much so that when you wake up the next day, you question if it actually ever happened at all. Add to that list the Wheel of Four Tunes. The duo performs on the Sensation Seekers Stage at various times across the weekend and the premise is fairly simple: two guys dressed as Power Rangers doing Wheel Of Fortune-driven karaoke. The Sensation Seekers Stage is in Bella's Field, and its motto says it is "where you'll find a whole bag of wrong, it's oh so right". It's a decent bet for finding the weird and the wonderful.
