Turning on their live feed on Friday from 7:45pm, the footage began with Michael and Emily Eavis driving up to the Glastonbury site, to meet Foo Fighters sitting by the Pyramid stage.
After the Foos realised they were a few months early for their headline set, Emily suggested they play the Cheese And Grain, which cut to the live feed of the band at the venue.
Michael Eavis then confirmed the news that they would be headlining the Saturday night (24 June) of the festival, saying: "Foo Fighters are the biggest band in the world, the best band in the world today. They came to Worthy Farm this afternoon to tell me that they're going to headline Glastonbury. Saturday night".
He added: "Be there or be square," before the band came on and opened with - you guessed it - Learn To Fly.
Radio X's Dan O'Connell was lucky enough to be invited down to the gig, where he showed off his amazing plane-themed passes.
The band then played a very special set, following Learn To Fly with the never-before-played Sean and playing the likes of The Pretender, These Days and All My Life. See Dave rocking out below:
