A meat truck installation from street artist Banksy called 'Sirens of the Lambs' is rolling through the 2014 Glastonbury Festival. Previously seen in the streets of New York City last October, the crying stuffed animal-filled truck drives through the UK music festival during meal times to represent animals being taken to the slaughterhouse.

The UK debut of 'Sirens of the Lambs' will roll through "all corners" of Glastonbury, featuring squeaking and crying plushies and puppeteer-operated animal puppets. In April 2014 an illustration of the Meat Truck appeared on Banksy's website without any further information, making its way onto apparel, prints and other paraphernalia. This incarnation of the Meat Truck uses an authentic truck from Somerset Farm with "25% more added terror."
