From Panic! and BMTH to The Offspring and Weezer, plus everything in between.
Today's the day - Glastonbury Festival kicks off TODAY.
After taking a year off, the legendary UK festival will return bigger than ever in 2019 with batches of tickets available on Wednesday (October 03) and Sunday (October 07). This will be the 49th (!) anniversary of the first fest which now attracts over 170,000 revellers as well as being broadcast live across BBC radio and TV stations. And it turns out that many of our favourite bands have also made the pilgrimage to Pilton over the years.
Here are just a few of the most memorable performances from Glastonbury Festival:
PANIC! AT THE DISCO
Fresh from the success of sophomore album 'Pretty. Odd.', Panic! brought some 1960s psychadelic vibes as they headlined The Other Stage in front of thousands.
BRING ME THE HORIZON
In 2016, Sheffield's finest brought their 'That's The Spirit'-era to a close with an astonishing performance on The Other Stage. Glasto has never seen so many circle pits. AND they're set for a repeat this year!
Biffy have become true Glasto veterans, having played nearly every stage in the fest, most recently tearing up the main Pyramid Stage in 2017. But it's there 'Puzzle'-era show back in 2007 that sticks most in the memory.
Following Dave Grohl's infamous on-stage leg injury, the Foos were forced to pull out of their Glastonbury headline slot in 2015. They returned triumphant in 2017, Dave opening with a solo take on 'Times Like These' dedicated to their 2015 replacement, Florence and The Machine.
A headliner on multiple occasions, the Devon trio were rumoured for a return visit in 2019 in support of their upcoming new album 'Simulation Theory', but alas - it wasn't meant to be. Here's what we're missing out on this weekend, taken from their 2010 set.
Armed with a full horn section, Rou Reynolds owned The Other Stage back in 2009, with the band returning as recently as 2015 to keep showing Pilton exactly how it's done.
THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM
How do you make a The Gaslight Anthem gig even more epic? You bring out actual Bruce Springsteen to play 'The '59 Sound', that's how!
JIMMY EAT WORLD
What better way to spend a sunny June afternoon than dancing around in a field to 'The Middle'. This is how you do summer right.
On the cusp of world domination, the Californians had just released seminal pop punk album 'Smash' the year before when they took on Glasto. The sheer amount of crowd surfers says it all really.
Sadly we only have fan footage of this set but even judging by this shaky cam evidence, it seems Rivers and the guys brought all the anthems of 'The Blue Album' out in full force.
RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
Headlining their stage at the peak of their popularity, RATM caused absolute scenes back in 1994. The stage has never fully recovered from that much bouncing.
