Ahead of Coldplay's headline slot tonight (26 June), Glastonbury have started handing out LED wristbands on site to accompany their performance.

The band have been including the 'Xylobands' in their live shows since 2012, however tonight is the first time anything of this magnitude has been used at Glastonbury.

The wristbands light up and blink intermittently, and are controlled by software to align with the band's visuals on stage, and have been hugely popular in their recent stadium shows.

The festival are asking people who want to watch the band to find stewards in purple tabards in the pyramid field, where they can pick up one of the devices for free. See what they look like below.

Tonight will be Coldplay's third headline performance at the festival, and rumours are circling that the band will be joined by Rihanna, who is currently on run of UK dates and was reportedly spotted on the festival site yesterday (25 June).

The two acts have also collaborated in the past, duetting on 'Princess Of China' in 2011.

Day two of Glastonbury saw epic performances from Adele, New Order, Chvrches, Wolf Alice, The 1975 and more - while Muse, Sigur Ros, Foals, Editors and Frightened Rabbit played Friday.
