Glastonbury Festival is finally back this year after years of waiting.

One thing is for sure, the festival is back with a bang.

While thousands of music enthusiasts will head to the Pyramid Stage to watch the likes of Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Sir Paul McCartney over the weekend, others will be looking forward to exploring the hidden gems the festival has to offer.

One quirky club which is the place to be when the sun goes down at Worthy Farm is NYC Downlow and it’s back room counterpart Meat Rack.

Tucked away in the corner of the site, known as the naughty corner, festival revellers queue two hours to dance the night away.

However, strict rules apply within the facility as cameras and alcohol are banned.

Phone cameras get covered on entry so the inside remains a huge secret until you wish to enter.

There is only one rule at NYC Downlow, every visitor must have a moustache to enter – so if you haven't got a real 'stache, you can grab a fake one at the door for a small contribution of £2 to charity.

NYC Downlow has been branded as one of the best gay party venues on the planet.

A club visitor told Daily Star: ‘The venue is compared to stepping onto a film set, from the dancers greeting you outside to the dingy and smoky neon-lit underworld inside.

‘Free to dance and get frisky but as it says on the door consent is key.’

The annual music event kicked off yesterday in bright sunshine – much to the delight of revellers.

But the Met Office is warning that the four-day event at Worthy Farm in Shepton Mallet could end with a disastrous downpour.

Temperatures hit around 27c earlier today (June 23), but seasonal wet weather could see it go as low as 18c by the time the annual festival ends.

Met Office Chief Forecaster Paul Gundersen said: “Our advice would be to have raincoats at the ready for the rest of the festival.

“After a warm and, at times, sunny start to Thursday it will turn cloudier and there will be an increasing risk of thunderstorms through the afternoon and evening bringing a risk of torrential downpours.

“The exact location of the heaviest of these showers is still uncertain, but people can stay up to date with the latest forecast and warnings through our website or app.

“For Friday and the weekend, the weather will become cooler and more unsettled, and the risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms continues in the Glastonbury area, and although these should be quick moving, some surface water might accumulate at times from the heaviest showers.”
