On Demand: Watch Glastonbury's Greatest Headliners.
With a week to go before Glastonbury 2019 and after a fallow year at Worthy Farm, Edith Bowman narrates this affectionate but witty A-Z of 25 years’ worth of Pyramid Stage headliner action since television cameras first came to Pilton in 1994.
Tracking the festival’s emergence as a global stage featuring the biggest names in popular music across a variety of genres this retrospective celebration blends archive clips and backstage testimony alongside new interviews with the likes of Damon Albarn, Liam Gallagher, Skunk Anansie’s Skin, Chemical Brothers, Jarvis Cocker and the Eavis family.
If A is for Arctic Monkeys and Adele, B is for Britpop, D is surely for dance and didgeridoo, courtesy of The Levellers, while Z takes us back to 2000 and the remaining letters of the alphabet caption a rollercoaster ride across some 60 epochal headline sets as stars waxed and very occasionally waned, crowds surged and sang along and history was made, come rain or shine, beneath a West Country moon.
