Well, it's Tuesday morning and we're still reeling from what's universally agreed to be the Best. Glasto. Ev-arrrr.
Here's a round-up of the best NME videos from behind the Pyramid Stage as we hung out with a few friends...

The Drums admit that festivals aren’t really their cup of tea. The nonchalant boys prefer intimate settings, but they were excited to visit Glastonbury as a band — and use their free meal tickets.



NME caught half of Vampire Weekend backstage to chat about their European tour. The guys discuss U2 and the baking weather.





Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis tells us about getting local support for the festival and the anti-establishment mantra that's kept it unique for the past forty years.



A relaxed Carl Barat talks to NME.COM about writing his memoirs, finishing his solo album, how little The Libertines have rehearsed, and getting Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt on stage.



Scissor Sisters discuss getting Kylie to perform with them at Glasto, how Jake Shears went on his first date with his husband at Worthy Farm and their plans for 2010.



Foals reveal how they'd help Michael Eavis celebrate 40 years in the business (clue: it involves Monica Belluchi and golden showers).



Mumford & Sons chat to NME backstage ahead of their Glastonbury set and reveal their live plans and which songs they're most excited about playing.



We talk to Kele backstage at the festival about his solo show on the John Peel stage. He chats about his decision to try and make it on his own, Bloc Party fans and Kylie Minogue videos.



Marina & The Diamonds reveals her beauty tips for the festival.



Broken Bells - aka Danger Mouse and The Shins' James Mercer - talk to us about their first ever festival performance as the band and reveal how they're getting on with new material.



The Flaming Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne talks to NME.COM backstage at Glastonbury 2010. He chats about trying to find 'kiosks of shade' at the scorching festival, 40 years of Glasto, Radiohead and the great audiences.



Glastonbury virgins Miike Snow talk to NME.COM after playing the John Peel stage and reveal their step-by-step formula sure to guarantee leaving the stage victoriously.
