Glastonbury 2015

June 30, 2015 at 15:14 (Festivals, Music) (, )

Img_2276 For what was arguably the worst Glastonbury lineup for quite some time, it turned out there were many personal highlights (in bold below). Italics indicate acts where I didn’t see the whole set due to boredom (Kanye West) or getting food and listening (Jamie XX). I think this is the first year when I didn’t see a headline act, on all three days, nothing on Sunday and only brief moments from two on Saturday. I had hoped to see Chemical Brothers headline on Sunday but it was far too crowded half an hour before they were due on stage so I bailed but Idlewilde made up for it. Wolf Alice were the only other act I really wanted to see but didn’t make it (lazily due to rain and been on the other side of the site) but there’s probably a whole lot more to discover on iPlayer.
