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.
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”
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…”
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.”
