Backstage at Glastonbury 2014: Bands, Celebrities & Blaggers

Glastonbury 2014 is over for another year. We were backstage snapping all the bands, celebs and blaggers. Here's a selection of NME's best shots, from Noel Gallagher to Lily Allen. One of the highlights of Thursday night was Kate Tempest, shown here having a cuddle with her pal Dan from Bastille.

Despite persistent sound problems during her set, but the poet-turned-rapper kept the momentum going by freestyling a capella. She referred to her recent debut album ‘Everybody Down’, from which her set was taken. "This record has changed my life, I'm so fucking happy," she said. She looks it, too.

Haim's bass player Este Haim wins in the style stakes before her band's set on Friday. Last year Este's Pyramid Stage debut was eventful. "I almost died," Este said. "We were in the middle of a song and I'm diabetic and I didn't eat before my set like a smart, good diabetic does, and I remember not being able to feel my arms, and I was like 'This is not a normal feeling when I'm playing music'."
