The music and mud-loving Glastonbury Festival took place this past weekend in the U.K. and for the first time, featured Adele headlining the event in front of a crowd of 150,000.
The 25 singer kept the BBC censors working overtime during her closing set on Saturday, swearing 33 times and making us love her even more. The 90-minute set featured 15 tracks, including “River Lea,” “Skyfall” and “Someone Like You.”
Fellow headliners Coldplay closed the festival on Sunday night, marking their fourth time headlining the music fest. The four-piece covered a number of their own hits, including “Clocks,” “Fix You” and “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” before covering Viola Beach, a band that was killed earlier this year in a car crash. Coldplay closed their set with “Staying Alive,” a performance that featured Bee Gees’ member Barry Gibb.
One Direction member and proud friend Niall Horan shared a pictured of Ellie Goulding on the main stage during her performance Sunday. Goulding took a few breaks during her performances of “Burn” and “Anything Can Happen” to comment on the recent Brexit vote, saying she hopes the positivity of the music fest will carry on throughout the country.
Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander gave an inspiring and passionate speech celebrating Pride weekend, noting that while the LGBTQ community continues to live in fear, they should not live in shame, saying “I’m here, I’m queer and yes sometimes I’m afraid, but I am never ashamed because I am proud of who I am.”
