This weekend in Pilton, England, the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts thrilled more than 170,000 festivalgoers with sets from Coldplay, U2, Beyonce, Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Morissey, Wu-Tang Clan, Paul Simon, Fleet Foxes, Bright Eyes, Lykke Li, Kesha, Cee-Lo Green, Big Boi, Crystal Castles and hundreds of other big-name musicians.
Founded by Michael Eavis, a now 75-year-old dairy farmer who had the idea after seeing Led Zeppelin perform at a music festival, Glastonbury has become one of the biggest festivals in the world and routinely lands some of the biggest stars in music as headliners.
The reviews for this year’s fest are in and apparently it was a banner year over in jolly ole England. Had there been a roof over the outdoor fest, it seems Beyonce would have blown it off. Check Queen B out above and read on for more action from Glastonbury.
U2, currently on the last leg of their 360 world tour (aka the biggest tour in history), also played a stellar set and had the entire Glastonbury crowd singing along to their classic “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”
