There are less than 24 hours until the gates of Glastonbury open to its 175,000 attendees, but for those without a ticket this year, fear not: Lego has created its own mini version at Legoland Windsor, mud, bogs, backstage area and all.

Consisting of 10,000 Lego bricks, the miniscape took 720 hours to build, and includes a lump of real Worthy Farm mud, a VIP section, toilets and Lego versions of its headliners: Kanye West (with Kim Kardashian), Florence + the Machine and the Who’s Roger Daltrey, who can be seen on a 50cm high Pyramid stage based on the precise dimensions of the real thing.

“The Glastonbury festival has become such a British institution, it truly deserves a place here in Miniland,” Legoland spokesperson Lauren Moss said.

“The model-makers have had a huge amount of fun creating the scene and the festival team have been really helpful, giving us stage dimensions and sending a special consignment of Glastonbury mud fresh from the farm.

“We think guests are going to love the scene, which will remain a permanent feature here from today.”
