From Rita Ora's festival fashion to Dolly's sax solo, we round up the reasons we LOVED Glastonbury 2014
Rita’s fashion fest, Dolly’s sax solo and Este’s bass face were just a few reasons to love this year’s Glastonbury. Check out our full round up.
1.Dolly’s Sax Solo
Never one to disappoint, Dolly Parton treated her massive Glastonbury audience to an amazing set. Our best bit? Dolly whipping out a rhinestone-encrusted saxophone and playing the Benny Hill theme tune. Of course.
2. The Beat Hotel
Just as we found ourselves stranded in the rain, we discovered the Beat Hotel. A mud-free sanctuary where Rob Da Bank busted out the tunes and buttermilk pancakes were the only thing to be seen eating. Oh and the ginormous diner style sign means mid-fest meet ups were easy as pie.
3. Bradley Cooper Selfies
Attempting to keep a low profile went out the window as Hollywood star Bradley Cooper mucked in (literally) with us commonfolk. More than happy to snap a few fan selfies, Brad is our new favourite festival goer.
4. Game Of Thrones Goes To Glasto
Game Of Throne's Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark got well and truly into the festival mood with fairy-glitter eye makeup, flower garlands and butterfly hairclips. We say more is more, rock on Maisie!
5.Thunderbirds Are Go!
If Kasabian wasn’t your thing then stopping by the Park Stage to catch conductor Charles Hazlewood and his orchestra (with members of Goldfrapp, no less) play the Thunderbirds themetune might have been up your alley.
6. Rita Ora’s Festival Fashion
The award for the most outlandish celeb festival look goes hands down to Rita Ora. Never one to be a wallflower, the singer rocked cowprint dungees with leather tassle cowboy boots all finished off with a plastic mac - and that’s just one look. Don’t get us started on the paisley jumpsuit…
7. The National Ballet On The Pyramid Stage
Billy Bragg, ballet and a bacon bap were the order of the day on Sunday morning. Presenting a section from ‘Lest We Forget’, the National Ballet’s performance was one of the emotional highlights of the weekend. Thank goodness for tear-hiding sunglasses.
8. Arcade Fire
Their pyschedelic set and amazing costumes were just a few of the reasons we went nuts for Arcade Fire’s Glasto performance. Well, they were never going to be bad, were they?
9. Este Haim’s Awesome Bass Face
The sassiest bassist since…well ever, Este Haim’s crazy mouth movements have quickly become her calling card. Super talented and stylish, Este may just be the end of the boring shoe-gazing bassist. Did anyone say girl power?
10. Nick Mulvey
Our one to watch for 2014, former Portico Quartet man Nick Mulvey sung us into submission. Strumming sultry acoustic tunes from his debut album, ‘First Mind’, Mulvey overcame the elements and performed a stormer. Oh and he’s not bad on the eyes either…
