The world's most famous music festival is returning with top headliners this weekend - but just how big would it be if Worthy Farm was swapped with a Sussex destination?

Some 210,000 revellers have descended on its fields for a five-day long party to the soundtrack of Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA to name a few.

It becomes the most densely populated place on earth with all of these fans crammed into the 1,000 acre heavily-fortified site.

The Pyramid Stage, Park Stage and Arcadia among the dozens of other stages take over an area roughly the size of Lewes.

For those of us flying away somewhere sunny this weekend, you could even see yourself walking an equivalent distance through the terminals at Gatwick.

Both the North and South terminals at the airport - and the runway - can fit inside the huge event's footprint.

Glastonbury has even got an airport-themed stage this year called Terminal 1 - a political statement on immigration.

Closer to home, you could travel the equivalent distance between the Palace Pier and Preston Park and still be listening to the soundtrack from one of its 100+ stages.

The same can be said about Shoreham. You could take a dip in the sea and walk to the top of Buckingham Park, more than a mile away, and remain within the festival site.

If the Eavis family were after a change of scenery, Newhaven could include the international ferry port, a waste incinerator, and a swing bridge all within its perimeter wall.
