Glastonbury, 2010

Mumford and Sons

The 4-piece folk band from London played a charming set to a packed out tent as they drew in one of the biggest crowds they have ever performed in front of. Renowned for their brisk live performances, the immediate energy captured in the atmosphere had every single person dancing to their upbeat, folk fables. ‘Winter Winds’ and ‘The Cave’ received the biggest cheers, whilst ‘Little Lion Man’ and ‘White Blank Page’ prompted mass sing-alongs. As their set drew to a close, lead vocalist Marcus Mumford proved his brilliance when he turned into the singing drummer, beating the hell out of his drums as the whole band put everything into the last song ‘Dustbowl Dance’. Something tells me it won’t be long until they’re main stage regulars.



The band that never fails to blow my mind succeeded in doing it once again. Muse conquered the headline slot on the main stage effortlessly with their unparalleled epic proportions. Mammoth sound? Check. Extraordinary theatrics? Check. Cameo from U2’s The Edge? Check. They progressed through an hour and a half set full of a back catalogue of classic rock anthems such as ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ ‘Knights Of Cydonia’ and ‘Time Is Running Out, which sparked the 100,000 strong crowd to bellow the lyrics louder than Matt Bellamy himself; and when the chorus dropped, the crowd went into complete ‘Hysteria’ (pun was too easy there). I think it’s safe to say they’re holding on tightly to that best live band title.
