Published Jun 29, 2015Legendary UK festival Glastonbury took place over the weekend (June 26-28) and saw 177,000 attendees descend upon the village of Pilton to revel in a few days of music and mud. Headliners were shuffled at the last minute, due to Dave Grohl's leg injury, leaving the equally injury-prone Florence and the Machine to take over the Foo Fighters' prestigious slot. They reportedly paid tribute to the Foos with a cover of "Times Like These," but that wasn't the only memorable moment.
The schedule shuffle also resulted in a surprise set from the Libertines, who stepped into Florence and the Machine's slot and powered through a set of old favourites, as well as debuting "Gunga Gin" from their forthcoming reunion album.
Unsurprisingly receiving mixed reactions, Kanye West's 30-minute headlining set featured a sing-along rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," as well as surprise appearances from Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and an interrupting fan that gave Kanye a dose of his own stage-invading medicine.
And while fan footage of these memorable moments seems to be getting pulled off YouTube in less time than a Kanye set, the BBC has shared an extensive playlist of professionally filmed footage from throughout the festival. Check out performances from the aforementioned artists, as well as the likes of Ryan Adams, FKA twigs, Belle & Sebastian, FFS, Alabama Shakes, Jamie xx, Caribou, and many more.
