With U2's Glastonbury Festival headline set just a day away, we thought we'd revisit guitarist The Edge's video message that he sent us when Glastonbury won the NME Award for Best Festival.

"It's more a way of life than a festival," says The Edge of the Worthy Farm event, before describing the keyed-up Pyramid Stage crowd as "the world's greatest festival audience."



U2 headline Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage on Friday June 24 and look likely to bring something not seen at the festival before - possibly even bringing their own stage.
