That’s it! It's passed in the blink of an eye, but Glastonbury is over for yet another year. Luckily, if you weren’t fortunate enough to be at Worthy Farm this weekend, then the whole thing was streamed into our homes by the BBC. (It’s almost like we were there - just without the portaloos and sunburn.) From Stormzy’s history-making set, Lizzo being herself (an icon) to Miley Cyrus blowing our minds when she appeared as Black Mirror alter-ego Ashley O there were plenty of iconic moments. Before you respond that you’re ‘interested’ in going to next year’s festival on Facebook, remind yourself of the weekend’s best bits.
Miley Cyrus Taking Ashley O Out On The Road
One word to describe Miley’s performance? Meme-able. In between rocking leather trousers and looking like a true rock star, Miley found the time to bring out her dad, Billy, and Lil Nas X for a performance of Old Town Road. She then transformed into her alter-ego, Ashley O, for a sassy performance of her (insanely catchy) Black Mirror track On A Roll. As if that wasn’t enough, the show's creator Charlie Brooker was at the side of the stage cheering her on.
A Random Kid From The Crowd Stealing The Show During Dave's Set
How’s Glastonbury for your first performance!? Rapper Dave brought a fan onto the stage to perform his and AJ Tracey’s track Thiago Silva because he spotted that he was wearing a Paris Saint-Germain shirt emblazoned with the name of the Brazilian footballer. Credit to Alex, he held his own in what's probably the ultimate unplanned debut gig.
Stormzy (And His Banksy Stab Vest)
Stormzy’s headline - and history making - set was quite rightly lauded by fans and critics - and, making a powerful statement about knife crime, he performed in a Banksy stab vest. As Jeremy Corbyn tweeted, ‘Tonight @Stormzy made history by being the first black solo British headliner at Glastonbury. The performance was political, iconic and the ballet was beautifully powerful. It won't just go down in Glastonbury history - it'll go down in our country's cultural history.’
Lizzo's Self-Love Mantra
We do not need to tell you here at Grazia just how much we love Lizzo. Obviously, her Glasto set was out of this world, with even Jack Whitehall fangirling in the audience. Was there a flute? Check. Did she preach self-love? Check. Was she bloody incredible? Also, check. ‘I want you to know if you can love me, you can love your goddamn self,’ she told the crowd, before encouraging everyone to go home and practise her mantra of looking at yourself in the mirror and telling yourself “I love you, you are beautiful and you can do anything.”
Kylie Minogue Being A Legend
In 2005, Kylie was booked to play the festival - but her breast cancer diagnosis meant she had to watch the festival unfold from Australia. This time, she tearfully returned to the legends slot for an amazing performance - but she wasn’t alone, bringing out Nick Cave and Chris Martin.
Lewis Capaldi, Or Is It Noel Gallagher?
The best entrance of this year’s festival goes to Lewis Capaldi, without a doubt. After Noel Gallagher recently slagged him off in an interview, the Scottish singer was more delighted than outraged - and used it as inspiration to swagger on to The Other Stage in a bucket hat and parka. (Future collab on the cards? Right?)
