Glastonbury over for another year

  • 27/06/2016

Glastonbury has wound up for another year and headliners Coldplay finished off the festival with a little help from the Bee Gees.

It was a muddy, rain-soaked start to the British festival, but that didn't deter some 175,000 people from slipping on their wellies and getting amongst the musical goodness.

Barry Gibb from the Bee Gees joined Coldplay on stage for classic 'Stayin' Alive', which Chris Martin announced was the greatest song of all time.

Martin addressed the crowd throughout their multi-coloured, confetti-filled performance, including a nod to the UK's move to leave the European Union.

"We came here a little bit scared about the state of the world, but just seeing the vibe at Glastonbury makes me think people are great and together we can do wonderful, wonderful things.

"Thank you for restoring my faith in the world."

The band also did a tribute to British band Viola Beach, whose four members and manager were killed in a car accident while on tour in February this year.

Adele was another headliner at Glastonbury, who had a nudge at the record for the most swearing on stage. The BBC even gave her a warning about her "potty mouth" before her set, she says.

New Zealand had a part to play too with Kiwi Ruban Nielson's band Unknown Mortal Orchestra playing on Friday. The Aussies were also there, with Tame Impala playing an electric set of their psychedelic-rock tunes such as 'Let it happen' and 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards'.
