When thousands of people go home after a festival, the site is often left covered in rubbish and debris. This is what Glastonbury looked like the day after it ended in 2019...

Glastonbury 2019 delivered five full days of merriment and three huge headliners.

Stormzy silenced his critics during his historical set on the Friday night of the festival, The Killers put on an indie extravaganza with special guests in the Pet Shop Boys and Johnny Marr, and the weekend was capped off by a career-spanning performance from legendary goth rockers The Cure.

And, with the 2020 festiival called off because of the COVID-19 pandemic many people have been looking back over previous events across the weekend. If the 50th anniversery had gone ahead, this is the sort of thing that organisers at Worthy Farm would be looking at this morning.,,,
