Here's All The Main Things That Happened At Glastonbury 2015

All the highlights, from Lionel Richie-mania to Kanye West calling himself the "greatest living rock star on the planet".

There was the inevitable pre-Glastonbury weather panic.

Let's hope the rain at *6pm* is just one single drop like it is in the diagram... #Glastonbury #MudAlert 😅


These people took full advantage of the stunning sunsets.

There were of course plenty of smug people enjoying watching it from home instead.

Having Glastonbury at home with the loo....couch.....heaven 😊😊😊

Thoroughly enjoying watching Glastonbury right now. From the comfort of my sofa. With a Chinese takeaway. 👌

Until this happened.



Meanwhile, on site The Libertines played a surprise set on the Friday night. Some people were confused as to why they were sharing one microphone.

I wonder if the Libertines would get on better if they each had their own microphone. #Glasto #bbcglasto


And Mark Ronson provided one of the most poignant moments of the festival by dedicating "Valerie" to Amy Winehouse.

Another highlight was this breakdancing girl, who stole the show during Jungle's Friday afternoon set.

But the real winner of the weekend was Lionel Richie. First he won the merchandise game.

Lionel Richie's already won the Glastonbury merchandise game


Although the security guards performing a flashmob to "Dancing on the Ceiling" almost stole the show.

Tune!! Especially loving the moves that the security guards?! #LionelRichie #legend #bbcglasto #Glasto2015

As were all the other flags on display.

The best flag ever at Glastonbury..@garylineker


As for the other acts, Florence Welch discovered her doppelgänger in the crowd.

Florence has found her doppelganger in the crowd... #BBCGlasto


Music-wise, Mary J. Blige teamed up with Grandmaster Flash.

As did Mark Ronson with Boy George.

Especially for the BBC subtitle team, who had fun with Kanye's lyrics.

Meanwhile at #Glastonbury the subtitle department of the BBC have called it a day.

Go home @BBC subtitles man, you're drunk! #Kanye #Glasto2015 #liger


Add some comedy to the Kanye performance by putting the subtitles on! #Glasto15

He briefly forgot the words to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody".

when kanye calls himself the biggest rockstar in the world


We're not entirely sure The Who agreed when they headlined the following night.

Brilliant from Pete Townshend! Who is the biggest rock star in the world @kanyewest? #bbcglasto

And we proved just how British we can be when everyone started worrying about Kanye's safety as he climbed in a cherry picker above the crowds.


You rock, Glastonbury.
