Revellers heading for the Reading Festival are being warned to expect flooded car parks and rain storms.
The Darkness are headlining the three-day festival's opening night
Organisers of the bank holiday event - featuring The Darkness and The White Stripes - are urging an expected 50,000 fans to come prepared for downpours.
Car parks at the Richfield Avenue site are currently submerged in water and the heavy rain is predicted for the opening day on Friday.
The Reading to London line and part of the A41 will also suffer closures.
A spokesperson for festival organisers Mean Fiddler said: "So far this month we have had 10 times as much rain as this time last year and it looks like more is coming.
"It is essential festival-goers bring sufficient changes of clothes, wet weather gear and camping gear to stay dry.
"In addition please, please, please use the trains and National Express.
"Much of the car parking is forming part of the River Thames at the moment and we may have to use some edge of town park and ride schemes."
