This year’s festival saw 50,000 revellers enjoy incredible headline sets from The Prodigy, The Black Keys, Blur and Fleetwood Mac as well as a world record attempt for the most people wearing the same mask in the same place in honour of the 45th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s last ever UK performance at the 1970 festival. Pharrell Williams, who performed on the Saturday, was joined on-stage by WellChild Award winner Dylan Bleach for ‘Happy’, and six YouTube artists performed over the weekend in a first for the video sharing platform and for the festival.
