GLASTONBURY, England, June 22 (Reuters) - Grey skies and rain greeted revelers arriving for Britain's Glastonbury Festival on Wednesday, with organizers asking drivers to delay their journey due to heavy traffic.

Tens of thousands of people are expected at the green-field music festival held in southwest England, where Adele, Coldplay and Muse are among the headline performers over the weekend.

"The current wet weather and ground conditions are still causing heavy traffic congestion around the ... site. But we're pleased to report that the picture is improving," organizers said on the festival's official "glastofest" Instagram page.

"Our advice for those yet to set off by car/campervan is still to remain where you are for the time being, please ... The longer you leave it the less you will have to queue."
