Glastonbury in the 21st Century

Glsatonbury in the 21st century

Throughout the 21st century, the Glastonbury Festival has become a global story – changing with the times, embracing new music and just generally getting bigger. Since the turn of the century, the festival has seen emerging global headliners such as Coldplay and The Killers, a wildly packed Chemical Brothers performance in 2000, the much-debated arrival of hip-hop with Jay Z in 2008, Beyonce’s game-changing performance in 2011, Kylie’s return and Stormzy’s defining headline set in 2019 – as well as those much-loved teatime legend slots. Dizzee Rascal narrates this musical journey through all things Worthy Farm in the 21st century.
