As the shoots of grass can gradually begin to regroup and start to peer through the churned landscape of Worthy Farm, it’s time to look back on another year of Glastonbury. For all those who weren’t lucky enough to attend, the BBC IPlayer is on hand to bring you as close to the action as possible. And if you did attend and your head is in a similar state to the festival’s terrain, why not take advatage of some well earned rest and plan your next stop on the calendar this summer.
Highlights from across the weekend included Madness appearing on the famed Pyramid Stage on Saturday afternoon. Also appearing at House Of Common Aug 29th, Suggs and co made their way through a hit laden set featuring classics such as Our House, Baggy Trousers and One Step Beyond.
Floating Points took to The Park stage with his twelve piece band, catch them live at Bluedot Festival alongside Caribou, Air and more, Friday 22nd - Sunday 24th July.
Dual Reading & Leeds Festival Headliners Foals and Disclosure both turned in emphatic sets along Wolf Alice making a third successive appearance at Worthy Farm. Kamasi Washington showed why he is one of the most revered sax players of current while Jack Garratt did much to further his reputation as the break through artist of 2016. As Coldplay enlisted Michael Eavis to see out their headline set on the main stage, LCD Soundsystem brought the Other Stage to a close via their own talents, ending with the joyous All My Friends. With further appearances scheduled on their comeback tour, James Murphy and band seem back to their spine tingling best and are sure to draw a few tears when performing New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down at the likes of Lovebox this summer.
