In Pictures: Best moments from Glastonbury 2023

We’ve rounded up 10 of the best moments from Glastonbury 2023.

It’s the music festival musicians and fans all dream of. Glastonbury 2023 is showing all the signs that it’s going to be one to remember.

The sun shone and thousands of different coloured tents flapped in the welcome summer breeze. Glastonbury was officially in full swing.

With hundreds of different acts to see and things to do, festival goers were never going to be short on options but the question every fan was asking was ‘who the heck are the Churnups?’

The strangely named band were scheduled to play the coveted Pyramid Stage between 6.15pm and 7.20pm but there was a catch - no-one had ever heard of them. Mystery gave way to speculation and every act under the sun, including Britney Spears, was rumoured to be the band masquerading as The Churnups.

The cat was out of the bag on Friday afternoon though when a photograph of Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, backstage at Glastonbury was shared at lightning speed across social media. The Churnups were Foo Fighters.

The Arctic Monkeys were the headline act for Friday, on Saturday it was Guns N’ Roses and the festival will come to a close with an eagerly awaited performance by Sir Elton John on Sunday evening.

Alongside music acts Glastonbury also serves as a platform for political activists and campaigners. This year Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe received a standing ovation for her talk on women’s rights in Iran.
