Loved it a lot. Thank you BBC for reminding us of how important live music is and also the BBC.

It’s been great. Bringing back some amazing memories. Round of applause for Michael and Emily Evis and ofcourse the BBC for bringing home what is the best festival on earth.

Brilliant...thank you to the BBC and the Eavis family. Long Live LIVE Music. All brilliant ..Highlights Brian WIlson and David Bowie

Brilliant coverage but I have to admit Bowie has musically walked my life with me so tonight was epic 🥰

Great coverage on t.v and I player. I've been to at least 25 Glastonbury Festivals and loved them all. The last one was the Bowie one shown last night. I'm now 76years old and probably don't have the techie skills to get a ticket, if there are any for next year but think there's a good case now for BBC 2 to have non stop 24hr coverage of the whole Festival, in all its various forms, then we can all feel as if we are really there. Love to all, stay safe. X

Beyonce. Cold play. Adele Chic featuring Nile Rogers Bowie. Among the very best performance put on by the BBC... Seeing David Bowies performance for the first time was incredible both band and artist were amazing to watch and listen to.

It was great, thank you to the BBC. Still got a couple of things left to watch, Amy and Ed. My other half said he still felt that proper 'after feeling' last night when it finshed!

Thank you so much, absolutely loved the BBC coverage, there was something for everyone and completed our Glasthomebury. Highlights were Florence on Saturday, obvs Bowie last night and for anyone who has not yet seen the Julien Temple film you are in for an amazing journey through the glasto-time machine. Special people special place - Glastonbury we love you 🥳❤️😉 x

A fabulous weekend of music. Beyoncé was phenomenal, Adele fabulous. Also enjoyed watching ELO, Kylie, David Bowie, highlights of the Boss and the legends programme. Also been watching various clips on YouTube including Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney and the Wombles!!

We absolutely loved it. Hugely raised our spirits. Lots of dad dancing and singing going on in our house. Just fantastic. 🙏

It was great being able to see acts again - some from years ago.... I loved the Sunday legends replay:)

Brilliant weekend Thank you BBC and Glastonbury next year will be epic back in the field roll on x

I don’t thank BBC much these days, but in the absence of the actual festival this year #GlastoAtHome was a real treat! Thanks to all, it made for a lovely weekend and I’ll continue watching performances for as long as they remain available on iPlayer. I suggest...don’t delete them until next year!!

Thank you all for putting this together with your television coverage and ongoing conversations on social media with my festival stewarding colleagues and friends who have been or want to go to Glasto. It has been a lovely weekend and I felt like I'd been a part of the weekends excitement. Truly thank you xx

Was fantastic, reliving some cherished memories, cant wait to get back down the farm and create some more 🤞fingers crossed I somehow get tickets for next year..!

Working all weekend, so started my Glastonbury festival experience this morning, my hubby has been taping it all for me, have already cried at REM's Everybody Hurts!! Loving the Nostalgia, wonderful wonderful show. ❤️❤️

It was a brilliant weekend BBC, some great memories from years gone by. My feet don’t hurt from walking and standing for hours, I had a shower every day, I got plenty of sleep in my own bed. But I can’t wait til we’re all back at Worthy Farm next year, and that Monday feeling is one of exhausted euphoria as we all gradually return to our daily lives after a week of pure escapism 😊

Brilliant showing of numerous acts. Thank you BBC 2 and I-Player for such great coverage.

Fabulous weekend - thanks so much for giving us the next best thing. Relived some magical moments and of course Bowie won - absolutely epic. Thank you. 🙏

Some fantastic memories of the most epic festival known to man. I love you guys and thank you x

Loved watching David Bowie again! A true musical icon! Superb! 🤩🤩

Thanks to the BBC for the memories. Especially 2016 when Adale played. Really good set.

Absolutely loved it, thanks for putting on the greatest festival in the world for so many years. Long may Glastonbury continue

Next best thing to being there, which is of course being there!! Just watching Ed owning the stage again at my first one in 2017! Thank you it’s been emotional!! ☺️💖🌻xx

Absolutely loved it, bringing back some memories, Coldplay especially, and Nile Rodgers, fantastic performances.

I ordered mine in good faith early June with tote bag and tea towel ready for this weekend, due to arrive 22/23, receive an email on 23rd saying that won’t be here until next week - after Glastonbury weekend! Poor show!!!!

Ordered well in advance but sadly nothing has arrived. Had an email saying it had been delayed, not much use now. Really disappointed especially when lots of others had theirs all ok 🙁

My T-shirt’s arrived for myself and 2 grandkids. Love them Thankyou.

Ordered.... Glasto & my 50th this year!! ❤️

Any idea when they’ll be dispatched? I ordered a Tshirt & a tote bag on 3rd June & later ordered a Tshirt for my son too. His arrived 2 weeks ago but still waiting for mine?

Love my shirt! Greetings from Germany 🌸

Wow it seems it takes a month for delivery and I paid £9.95 for postage don’t understand the logic .

I'm saving mine in the 'hope ' I can wear it next year at Glastonbury

Love my t shirt!! Thank you 😊

I wish the teatowel design was on a t-shirt!

Has anyone managed to buy a frame that fits the ‘Hope Shines Brightest’ poster? Can’t seem to find the right size frame anywhere, not even IKEA can save me now!

Still waiting for mine - ordered on 3rd June!

Are you getting more of the Mind The Longdrop posters in stock?

Wearing mine right now, love it

would love the tote bag but seems their sold out, got anymore coming soon Glastonbury?

Got my 1997 Glastonbury t.shirt at the sight.. might need a new one in a few years. Watcha got ..?

Got mine it's lovely

Sarah Munchkin-Marie Dyson

Sunday afternoon = teatime legends slot. Tune into BBC2 at 6.30pm for more! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I remember seeing James Brown in 2004, amazing but wish I’d seen Brian Wilson performance in 2005, that looks brilliant

As a Canadian who has lived in the UK before I'm kind of surprised to see Dolly, WIlly and Kenny Rogers there. Country music isn't that big there so I'm surprised people know who they are.

Lionel Richie was amazing!! I was there...lost in the crowd dancing my feet off, trying not to spill my cider! Happy Days!💖😊😍🍺⛺🎶 2016

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone enjoy themselves as much on stage as Lionel Richie did! He just looked so chuffed (and the whole set was brill as a result!)

Was this moment...when I wanted to sit in a puddle of mud to watch the magic numbers, as with being short I was sick of not seeing the stage!! But ended up missing it as so many people wanted to take our picture! Glastonbury 2007 was amazing xx

What about Leonard cohen. Singing hallelujah as the sun was going down. One of my best glasto moments ❤

Johnny Cash , no doubt about it , been lucky enough to have seen them all , think it was his set that started the whole Sunday legend slot thing , X 🌞🌈 🎸🍷🍷🍷

You missed Tony Bennett from 98 - brilliant legend slot performance

not entirely sure the legend label has been correctly used here if you think or 4 people (groups) who would be a legend in the music business . Bob Dylan (no mention here) Rolling Stones (no mention here) Beatles (Paul McCartney) (No mention Here) and (my humble opinion ) THE LEGEND .... David Bowie (no mention here)

Shout out to Barry Gibb, I've seen a lot of these legend slots over the years and he nailed it. Warmed us up lovely for Chic coming after too.

Coldplay, Ed shearan, Adele , they all rocked it for me 🎉

Lionel. A pure masterclass in how to play Glastonbury.

Plant and Page played that slot in 95 I think

How by all that is holy is Johnny Cash not on that film

Neil diamond was truely amazing but for me its brian Wilson.. wonderful wonderful memories of that set 🙂

Patti Smith was amazing. The gig b4 Lionel n much better

Kenny Rogers 2013. Our only time there but one of the highlights of our trip.

We were there for Ray Davies. Perfect sunny afternoon!

Kylie and Dolly mimed their way through ....

Saw Dolly and Kenny who were amazing. Would have liked to see Lionel x

For me the best ones I saw were the Marley Brothers perform Exodus, Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison and Don McLean where some woman drunkenly turned to me looking aghast and asked me "why's he covering Madonna" 😐

It's gotta be for me the Foo Fighters. You get true value with their circa 4 hr performances!

Lionel Richie, Ray Davies, Shirly Bassey, Neil Diamond & Tony Bennett were all class

Tom jones rocked it full set and didnt miss a note 😎

I'm beggining to wonder how much Influence the BBC is having over Glastonbury

⛺️ Glasto 2009 was an amazing year: Working on the bar, winding up punters with the megaphone, sneaking backstage, dancing in wellies, partying in the workers tent, colourful flags, trash city, great group of people and having the best fun. ✌🏼☮️ 🎶 Lilly Allen, The Streets, Dizzee Rascal, Florence and the Machine, Pendulum, The Prodigy, Bruce Springsteen, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris & Eric Prydz 😁 Kitty, remember us on the look out for melba toast! 🌳😂

I was at 2009&2010 and haven’t been able to get a ticket since Great memories though

I worked there for around 10 years putting up the heris fencing I shared some amazing times with amazing people...

Been going since late 80s. Worked At Wise Crone Cafe in Avalon field. When the owner died I started going on Sunday locals only. This is first year not getting ticket. They changed the boundary for tickets 😢

My husband and I are going to attempt to get tickets. He’s been a few times and I’ve been desperate to go since I was 7 but life didn’t work out that way. Hopefully I’ll be coming to make memories in the next couple of years

Apparently this is the only photo Karen took that year... she spent the rest of the festival wandering around trying to find Micheal Eavis to complain about "the crowds". (Sorry Karen, couldn't resist)

What people forget after all the wonderful acts n artists have gone the waste that people leave behind is well, just like those that massed to Bournemouth. They take it with them but aren't bothered about leaving it where they took it🤬

I've got similar ones to this taken in 1995 - the 25th one, which was my first Glasto. It was scorching that year n the lineup was phenomenal 😇

My 1st CND Glastonbury festival. Cure, Madness, Psychedelic Furs amazing 🌼🌼🌼🌼

I've uploaded a couple of pictures from 1985 & 1979 🙂 I remember going in 1985 and 1987 was my last. not quite 6 years old

1985 a great year I was there I'm in the video

My first year. Camped by a pylon so as not to loose tent. Happy days

Brilliant weekend well done BBC just what we neededxxx

When I first went I was unsure! Now when I walk around I'm at home. I'll always find someone I know so never alone

Love the 80’s tent ⛺️

Year before I was born ! Ha love pictures like that

Looks a bit too dry to be from 1985 - 1985 was a complete mud bath from start to finish!!

Most of the messy festival goes wouldn't even have been born then lol 😆

Glasto 10 and 11 I was there had tickets for 14 but wife was pregnant so had to miss Metallica

The tents are all like triangles. But so easy to put away afterwards!

God I love ridge tents ⛺️ ❤️

Oh what a great photo 😍

Loads of ridge tents!

Got engaged there in 2007 in the stone circle!!

Photo I recon from Muddy Lane...or hedgers lane..(place to get weed etc in the late 80s 90s)...oh memories..

    What a let down in line up. Are these headliners you want for the 50th? 🙃

  2. Kerry Maguire says:

    Glasto is the king (or Queen!) of festivals ❤️👑 it really doesnt matter who plays, the whole little world they create for 1 week every year is fukin magical 🦋✨

  3. Liam J Baker says:

    Great lineup! Hope Bombay Bicycle Club get added

  4. Russell McGowan says:

    Slightly better than the circle, but it’s still difficult to read.

  5. Alicia Hall says:

    When the world is surrounded in chaos we get given this as the 50th anniversary line up??

  6. Helen Gorman says:

    It’s a brilliant lineup! The usual naysayers are out in force 😴

  7. Phil Minns says:

    One of the best initial posters for a long time. Can’t wait to see how it expands. 🙂

  8. Jock Shennan says:

    At least there is no Coldplay that a big plus

  9. Richard Moore says:

    Karl Young, Trevor Power, easier time read than the circle, it’s not the best lineup I’ve seen, but still enough I’d like to see to focus me on resale. If it goes ahead…

  10. Martin Montgomery says:

    For the 50th anniversary I would of thought headliner like Bruce Springsteen or Dave Gilmore or fleetwood mac etc something like that would of been more the party ,

  11. Donna Craine says:

    Well done for listening to feedback about the line up format.

  12. Ger Spillane says:

    What about Iron Maiden, how one of the biggest rock acts in the world get constantly overlooked is unreal…

  13. Josh Boyd says:

    If ticket holders from Europe and beyond are on lockdown and can’t fly to the UK, will those tickets be resold to UK residents? 🧐🤔

  14. Laura Willis says:

    The amount of people bloody whingeing. Can you all just stop pissing on peoples bonfires? There’s enough miserable shite going on right now.

  15. Scott Mitchell says:

    I’m looking forward to going , but disappointing line up for the headliners, lots of great bands though . 😉

  16. Eric Bailey says:

    Glastonbury has been called off due to coronavirus

  17. Michael Lokuciejewski-Taylor says:

    Oh dear, other than the obvious legends and a couple of decent acts, this is a bit of a let down for a 50th Anniversary, hope the 2nd wave of line up improves for the punters, lot different to their 40th anniversary, how time changes I guess.

  18. Mike Jones says:

    3 solo acts headlining. Pretty ridiculous to not have an actual band as one of the headliners

  19. Graham Young says:

    Great line up minus headliners. Alot better than last years effort.

  20. Jackie Dryden says:

    Love Black Uhuru, havent seen them since the Stonehenge Free Festival! They have given so much to the world of reggae, hope they will be on TV as I don’t have a ticket.

  21. Sue Eld says:

    so wish I could go but wish everyone who can & does a wonderful time. Glastonbury is a whole life experience – not just somewhere to see bands. Thank you to the Eavis family for my happy memories. In my day we could drive in and park your car next to your tent – happy festival all x

  22. Sarah Webster says:

    For the 50th birthday this is an awful lineup apart from paul McCartney and diana Ross. There should definitely be more legends here. Correct me if I’m wrong but I dont think black sabbath have ever headlined and they are touring this year.

  23. Stuart Powell says:

    I can’t see how that’s a bad line up. It looks like a standard something for everyone glasto line up to me.

  24. Dan Green says:

    My only problem is that the musical genius/legend that is Herbie Hancock is not top of the list!!
    Pretty excited to see him play though, nice one #Glastonbury a most excellent booking👌

  25. Valera Maximov says:

    Every festival in 2020 – “and our headliner is “Сancelation due to coronavirus” 👏👏👏

  26. Jordan Hallpike says:

    *incase you missed it…or damaged your eyes looking at the previous poster 👀😣

  27. Harry John says:

    You don’t go to Glastonbury If you’re a music fan wanting to see as many acts as possible.

    You to go Glastonbury to pretend you’re a music fan.

  28. Rob L Cross says:

    To be honest I think it’s quite a poor line up but I think as it’s the 50th they didn’t have to make too much of an effort but I think the big one will be next year and so I’ve heard it’s 70% newbie’s this year, see how many will want to return especially after using the long drops 😂

  29. David Graydon says:

    Anyone who complains about a Glasto line up doesn’t deserve to go. It’s a lot more than that. Special place.

  30. Russell Allen says:

    Isn’t it more about discovering new bands and music as well rather than seeing what you already like. Went last year and came away with some really good new music, some different opinions on artists and some clarification of n bands. I’d have happily sat at the Park Stage with a beer soaking up the atmosphere.

  31. Dave Hale says:

    With what’s going on at the moment I have a feeling this is like one of those Bullseye moments of “let’s have a look at what you could’ve won.” Either going to have to look at changing the date or consider it may not be happening at all this year sadly.

  32. Daniel White says:

    A line up this weak makes me hope for corona cancellation.

  33. Gwanwyn Morley says:

    Genesis?? Elton John? Doja cat? Lady gaga? I hope all four and more are announced in the second wave all are either touring or have current new releases!

  34. Ian Difford says:

    Hopefully all the rock bands will be on the next line up announcement ✌

  35. Lyn Hewling says:

    Seen better line ups to be fair but who cares … it’s not all about the bands & pyramid stage ! Honoured to have got a ticket again xx

  36. Nicholas Shaw says:

    Kendrick Lamar! There’s way better headliners in the rest of the picture!

  37. Michael Cowan says:

    Given that Glastonbury are celebrating 50 years this is probably the worst line up I’ve seen in the past 10 years. I wouldn’t worry though. Be surprised if it’s not cancelled anyway with this Coronavirus

  38. Catherine Giles says:

    If you’re a whiner please sell your ticket so somebody deserving can appreciate the beautiful festival for what it is. If you haven’t got a ticket, it’s got nothing to do with you anyway. Stay at home, listen to your iPod and eat your sour grapes while we are singing, dancing and crying with joy.

  39. Rachel Wilson says:

    Right. When Glasto started 50 years ago, the acts they booked were current acts relating to the majority age of people attending, which was young hippies (and a few old ones). If people then had banged on about the music being too current, the alternative would have been to drag out Vera Lynn as a headliner and the Beverley Sisters. Us oldies can’t have it our way and expect Glastonbury to grow and be successful and attract future generations if they bring in a whole load of legend type acts.

    Grow with Glasto, appreciate we had it good 50 years ago but let go and let the new generation continue to make this place an extraordinary success. And be grateful that the younger generations are being influenced to have social conscience about the many things this festival stands for. Inclusivity. Tolerance. Age no limits.

    Oh and in 30 years’ time, it’s likely people will be moaning about Stormzy being wheeled out for the Legends slot as they’re queuing for their vitamin infusion drips.

  40. Bill Drew says:

    Seems like the whiners know what good music is and the non-whiners don’t. Makes sense. For a 50th anniversary, this is a mediocre lineup. People should be disappointed.

  41. Mark Styles says:

    The festival should be cancelled in the interests of public health. It’s a huge shame but peoples lives are more important.

  42. Matt Shepherd says:

    This will be my 2nd time at Glasto and first time was amazing. Best festival I’ve been to by a mile and I’ve been to lots. Obviously the bands playing helps but the festival will be amazing whatever. I was more excited with it being the 50th so my expectations around the line up were high and to be honest it’s not a great line up at all. Glasto will be amazing but would have been better had the line up been better.

  43. Dom Weatherman says:

    I wouldn’t bother arguing about the lineup. This won’t be happening anyway.

  44. Alan Jones says:

    I must assume those not up for this years lineup have either never been or “bitters” that couldn’t get tickets. I could elaborate but those who’ve been will know exactly what I mean and those going for the first time will understand once they’ve been ……If it actually goes ahead this year. Fingers crossed!

  45. Stephen Finnegan says:

    It won’t go ahead! It will be cancelled or forced to cancel ☹️
