7 Great Glastonbury Performances
From Stevie Wonder to Chic, Bruce Springsteen to Amy Winehouse, we choose 7 of the greatest Glastonbury performances of all time.
1. Bruce Springsteen (2009)
The Boss played one of the longest sets ever at Glastonbury, performing for three hours.
2. Stevie Wonder (2010)
2010 was the popular festival’s 40th anniversary and its founder, Michael Eavis, joined the Motown superstar onstage to sing Happy Birthday. The audience loved it!
3. Amy Winehouse (2007)
Winehouse gave a nervy and yet incredible performance on the Friday afternoon in 2007.
4. Paul McCartney (2004)
It helps if you have ’Hey Jude’ in your back catalogue – if ever there was a song to kick-start a sing-a-long, it’s that one.
5. Al Green (1999)
The Reverend Al Green played a gospel-soul set on a Sunday afternoon. Needless to say, the sun shone for him.
6. David Bowie (2000)
It had been almost thirty years since Bowie first played at Glastonbury but it was as if he’d never been away.
7. Chic (2013)
Nile Rodgers gave headliners Arctic Monkeys a run for their money with their funky set. The encore, an a cappella version of Daft Punk’s Get Lucky (which Rodgers co-wrote), was the perfect end to a fantastic set.
