Glasto Goodness Part 11 – 2010

I went to Glastonbury for 20 years between 1997 and 2017, amazingly missing out on tickets just once (the rivers of mud festival in 2005!)

I’ve managed to piece together every programme, mini guide, ticket and mud-spattered wristband that’s been hidden away in boxes up in my attic for years (see them all here!) Sadly my addled old brain is incapable of piecing together enough memories to write a review for each year so here’s some great footage and photos I have found from Glastonbury 2010 – the 40th Anniversary of the festival and what a scorcher it was! This was the year Muse replaced U2 as Saturday night headliners due to Bono having a bad back (The Edge did however make an appearance during Muse’s set). Me and my mate had already seen Muse a few times by then so we opted for Midlake over on the Park Stage instead. Great decision – they were made for Glasto! Other highlights included Hot Chip, Groove Armada, Editors, The Stranglers, Faithless and the legendary Stevie Wonder who headlined on the Sunday night. The sun shone throughout the entire weekend – something of a rarity at Glasto!

Friday night headliners on the Pyramid Stage were Gorillaz with various cameos including Bobby Womack (RIP) here on Stylo
Glasto faves Editors on the Other Stage, Saturday night – Glastonbury 2010
Still can’t believe we missed Guns N Roses legend Slash on the Pyramid Stage to see England (inevitably) lose to Germany in a World Cup match over in another field miles away. Kind of ruined the Glasto vibe a bit. Footy and festivals don’t mix well in my opinion!
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen Jack White at Glasto in his various cool bands. Here he is on drums with The Dead Weather. Alison Mosshart from The Kills is on vocals. Glastonbury 2010.
Another music legend I can tick off! The superb Stevie Wonder headlined the Pyramid Stage and closed the festival on the Sunday night. Bearing in mind it was Glasto’s 40th anniversary I bet you can’t guess what song he sang, with Micheal Eavis no less…?!
