Beyonce brings Glastonbury to a bootylicious climax on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday night.
The R&B superstar makes her much-anticipated headline slot just before 10pm. She opens with her smash ‘Crazy In Love’, which despite rumours, does not see Jay-Z turn up. But the song does see giant fireworks fire up on each side of the stage in time to the track’s signature trumpets.

The singer tells the Glasto Crowd: “I always wanted to be a rock star, and tonight we are all rock stars!!…I want to make beautiful memories and be free tonight.”
Beyonce’s set also includes a few mash-ups and covers, including ‘Alanis Morrissette’s ‘You Oughta Know’, ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)’ by Eurythmics and Prince’s ‘Beautiful Ones’, which segues into ‘Sex On Fire’ by Kings Of Leon.
In a surprise twist after ‘Naughty Girl’’ she brings out British rapper Tricky to guest on ‘Baby Boy’, before powering through two tracks from new album ‘4’, ‘End Of Time’ and new single ‘Best Thing I Never Had’.
Beyonce also performs a Destiny’s Child medley, including ‘Independent Women (Part 1) , ‘Say My Name’ and ‘Survivor’. Interspersed within it is a segment of her Lady Gaga duet ‘Telephone’.
Beyonce tells the crowd: “A girl, a woman, a young lady has not headlined for 20 years. This is history for me.”
Gwyneth Paltrow is spotted taking pictures in the crowd.

That’s right. The Wombles take on Glastonbury, and they’re fabulous. Bet you never thought you’d see a bunch of these furry critters on the big stage, huh?
“Basically, this whole site is grazing ground for the rest of the year, and I’ve decided not to buy any food that comes from this farm,” singer Theo Hutchcraft told NME. “Think about it, the cows are going to be eating grass that’s growing in human shit. I’ve thought about this long-term and my advice is: enjoy the festival, don’t eat food that comes from the farm.”

Bombay Bicycle Club prep and, erm, feel each other up backstage.
Bombay Bicycle Club’s frontman Jack Steadman battles through a fainting scare to lead his band through their Glastonbury festival set on the Other Stage. After, he told NME: “I’ve never felt any of those feelings before in my life. I thought, ‘You’re only going to do this once so you may as well faint and rock out and try as hard as you can.'”
Steadman also told NME: “I’m not really listening to guitar music anymore. Which sounds so cliché. I like listening to hip-hop and dance music. Groove – I hate that word, but it’s the only way I can describe it.”
Punters relax in the sun on the final day of the festival.
