Meanwhile at Glastonbury…

Whilst some of us spent last week on the beach over in the South of France, I was lucky enough to be in the vast muddy field that is Glastonbury Festival.

This year’s headliners included Florence and the Machine, Kanye West (or as he likes to call himself, “the greatest living rockstar on the planet”) and The Who among the many hundreds of acts. Personal highlights included Gregory Porter, Marcos Valle, The Maccabees, Hot Chip, Caribou, Chemical Brothers, Roy Ayers, Alt-J and of course watching the Dalai Lama slice up his birthday cake with Patti Smith.

The best performance, without a doubt, goes to Lionel Richie, who pulled in the biggest crowd of the weekend and also pulled the most memorable faces! Catch it again here on BBC iPlayer.
