Beyoncé doesn’t normally play festivals, but by all accounts she killed it at Worth Farm last night. After her Glasto headline performance the star told BBC she was so nervous playing for 175,000 people she sent Chris Martin her setlist to approve in advance. Of course between solo hits, Destiny’s Child favorites, and a medley of covers (Prince, Alanis Morrissete, Eurythmics, Kings Of Leon) there was no lack of familiar material to wow the Brits. Before that Morrissey and Coldplay played their newest tunes, Radiohead did most of King Of Limbs, Jarvis Cocker threw frisbees into the crowd, Jessie J sported a foot cast, and Bono dressed like Spider-Man under his clothes (probably). (On a serious note, a prominent British politician and close friend of British Prime Minister David Cameron was found dead in a port-potty.) Everyone got muddy, but for some artists the 1000% sales bump was a cool consolation. For Radiohead-only photos, setlist, and video click here. Otherwise enjoy various sights in the gallery above, and videos from the BBC below.
