Kissing goodnight to Glastonbury 2003 on the Pyramid Stage is techno elfin Moby . Like the Manic Street Preachers before him, his is a curious mix of the anarchic festival spirit of old and its new increasingly corporate direction. With 1991's...

Glastonbury : Other Stage (Sunday Evening)

It falls to Doves to provide the weekend’s poignant farewell, if you’re too tired for Streets over in the dance tent. Jimi, Andy and Jez hardly have a bad track record when it comes to uniting people in dizzying blanket-warm melody, but...

Always ones to make the effort for a special occasion, the Polyphonic Spree turn up in orange robes and daub the fields of Pilton in joy. Their now-standard incantations to togetherness and the elements might be in the need of refuelling in other...
