U+Music – Five Glastonbury highlights to revisit  

Written by Sam Walker.
Posted June 30, 2023.

Glastonbury rarely disappoints, having cemented itself as one of, if not THE biggest festivals around the world and this year it had it all. To pay homage to one of the biggest weekends in the music calendar, this week’s music roundup captures five Glastonbury highlights to maintain for life.  

5. Representing the 0161 this year, Aitch, made his set extra special by donning the new unreleased Man United home shirt which he put on half-way through sending social media into overdrive and even starting beef with a Man City fan in the crowd whilst doing it! He performed a flawless set with all his big hits and even brought out Anne-Marie for a rendition of Psycho.  

4. The first half of Lewis Capaldi’s set was filled with his classic humour, pulling gags on the audience and even tricking them that Ed Sheeran was coming out, a flawless first half. Unfortunately for Capaldi, his voice started to quake and by the time it reached ‘Someone You Loved’ he could barely sing a word. From here on out it was down to the crowd, and they delivered. Belting the words back to him in classic Glasto style, an all-round good performance both from Capaldi and the crowd, the highlight: 

3. Foo Fighters, a surprise act for festival goers, the American rockers played a secret gig playing classics All My Life, The Pretender and Learn To Fly in their hour-long set. Not a bad way to launch yourself back onto the Glasto stage having taken a hiatus since 2017. Here’s (track)  

2. Fred Again. He could have held the number one spot, but as any elder will tell you, you can’t beat the classics. Enjoying the limelight he is in his element at the minute following headline sets at Parklife and Coachella. He brought the same flawless energy to the folks at Glastonbury. A highly anticipated set it drew one of the biggest crowds with his upbeat techno and euphoric house, it was without a doubt the best DJ set at the festival this year. Here he is doing his thing:  

1.Elton John. Elton drew in the largest ever Glastonbury crowd with over 120,000 people watching him live and 7,000,000 people tuning in on TV. It’s safe to say this set will go down in history. Elton was in top form performing all of his classics whilst donning a fully gold shiny suit. There was only one way Elton could end the main stage, Rocket Man!
