Glastonbury 2015’s best moments

By Editor
Glastonbury 2015’s best moments

The dust has finally settled on Worthy Farm and most people who attended the festival are glumly back to their usual routines.

But least we can reflect over the weekend, right? Did Kanye prove the naysayers wrong? Did Flo deserve to headline? What were the greatest moments? What were the worst? Let's discuss what we learnt over the weekend.

Festival stewards are terrible dancers

They'd been training for months to perform the dance in question and what did it look like? A bloody disaster, that's what. Watch from 1.22 to see what looks like an elderly swimming pool aerobics lesson.

 

Mark Ronson does what he likes...

...except get Bruno Mars to do Uptown Funk with him at a festival. But that mattered little at the Other Stage as he brought on stage everyone but the pint-sized Hawaiian. For Uptown Funk, he brought out Grandmaster Flash, Mary J Blige and George Clinton.

 

Deadmau5 drinks beers with sharks

Say what you will about the man, but the DJ knows how drink beer with people dressed as sharks. And that's pretty jawsome, don't you think? Rumour has it, it was the shark that danced out of sync during Katy Perry's Superbowl performance. It must have been a hard few months for the fish judging by the speed in which he glugged his ceveza.

 

Dad rock is alive and well

What happens when you combine Paul Weller and The Who into one headline segment? Well, a herd of middle-aged men, it seems. As a far cry from Kanye and Flo, Michael Eavis thought he'd appease the bloke demographic by wheeling the grandfathers of Mod on stage.

 

Lee Nelson is still an annoying twit

It's starting to become a tradition now. At important events in the British timeline, 'funnyman' Lee Nelson decides to show up and perform a 'hilarious' prank on a celebrity. His prank this time was so unfunny that it even made Kanye's strongest opponents feel sympathy. Stick to the experts, Lee. Like Calvin Harris, who famously ran onstage during an X Factor performance holding a pineapple to his head. That was gold.

 

If you're in a tight spot, The Libertines are on hand to help

Pete and Carl, ay. What can't they do? When Flo was bumped up to headline the Pyramid Stage, there was a void. And like some handy plasterers filling a hole, The Likely Lads turned up and did their job, putting on their trademark rehearsed shambolic routine. 

 

That guy from the Future Islands is still the weirdest and best dancer ever

He has the appearance of someone who does a bit of trainspotting on the weekend, but when he dances he morphs into a beautiful swan.
