Festival-goers made their way home as volunteers cleared tents, plastic bags, food containers and cans from Worthy Farm in Somerset this morning at the end of the five-day festival
Clean-up operations at Glastonbury are underway this morning with huge piles of rubbish strewn across the site.
Tents, plastic bags, food containers and cans were cleared from Worthy Farm in Somerset after more than 200,000 people attended the five-day festival.
Highlights of the event’s special 50th anniversary included history-making headlines from Sir Paul McCartney and Billie Eilish, and Kendrick Lamar’s dramatic women’s rights demonstration.
Meanwhile, soul singer Diana Ross treated the crowd to a selection of classics during Sunday’s Teatime Legends slot, including “I’m Coming Out”, “Baby Love”, “You Can’t Hebrew Love”, “Stop! in the name of love
And Sir Paul, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday, became the festival’s oldest solo headliner after the former Beatle took the stage for his headlining show on Saturday.
On Friday, US singer Eilish headlined the Pyramid Stage, becoming Glastonbury’s youngest-ever solo headliner.
The festival featured countless other memorable moments, including Greta Thunberg delivering an impassioned speech from the Pyramid Stage and urging society to shoulder its “historic responsibility to put things right” with the global climate crisis.
It also hosted a number of Ukrainian representatives, with the country’s President Volodymyr Zelensky delivering a poignant address via video message and the Kalush Orchestra playing its first UK performance since triumphing at the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.
On the way to the festival, many artists and festival-goers had to contend with travel chaos as major train strikes took place during the event and many flights were delayed or cancelled.
But these problems failed to dampen sentiment, nor did the infamous Glastonbury showers, as the weather remained relatively dry compared to previous years.
