Festival: For Folk’s Sake’s Glastonbury

The mud on your wellies has dried, and everyone’s finally stopped talking about The Boss’s set (yes he played for two and a half hours, yes there was steam coming off him – we know), blubbing at Blur’s emotionally-charged reunion and the has he/hasn’t he rumour that turned out to be very true indeed.

So now is the time to step back and take a look at Glastonbury’s hidden treasures. Three FFS journalists went off the squelchy track to find the gems the BBC didn’t show us.

Part #1

Rich Furlong went to see Slow Club, Fleet Foxes, Animal Collective, Bat For Lashes, Bon Iver and Blur:

The world is going love Slow Club, or Rebecca is going to have words”


Part #2

Joe Downie caught Stornaway, Regina Spektor, Poppy and Friends, Noah and the Whale, The Rockingbirds and Emmy the Great:

Nothing like a little bit of Poppy and Friends, playing on the super-cute bandstand stage, to ease you into the day…”


Part #3

Adam Wilkinson saw Dan Black, The Dead Weather, Bombay Bicycle Club, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, The Rakes and The Maccabees:

There is so much to see and do, and so much care is put into every part of the festival, that it really is a wonder to behold.”
