Every year at Glastonbury festival, there's one act that causes a stir and gets everyone talking. The first year I went, in 2015, it was the controversial and brilliant choice of headliner, Kanye West. But this year, reports on the ground indicate that the person crowds are dying to see — rather than headliners Radiohead, Ed Sheeran, or Foo Fighters —is socialist Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. Corbynmania has taken the festival by storm, with graffiti and chants of his name already reportedly dominating the site. To kill time until he takes to the Pyramid Stage (introducing Run The Jewels on Saturday at 4.15 p.m.), feed on the excitement below.
