10 Things We Learned On Sunday At Glastonbury

Sunday: Day of handovers, lusty thoughts about showers and lazy afternoons spent sleeping in front of the Pyramid Stage. So far we’ve seen a stunning Arctic Monkeys show and the proof that the Rolling Stones really are the greatest rock’n’roll band in the world, but here’s a few things you might have missed on Sunday:

1. Glastonbury draws celebrities like some kind of festival magnet. Prince Harry, Benedict Cumberbatch, Wayne Rooney, Kate Moss (of course), Carey Mulligan and Noel Gallagher, have all been here. Have a look at the “pictures”. None came to the NME bus to say hello on Sunday, though. Rude.

2. Major Lazer think the Stone Circle is “dope”.


3. Lizo Mzimba upstaged the Rolling Stones late on Saturday night. Doing a BBC link at side of stage before the Stones, there was a loud, long chant of ‘Newsround! Newsround!’ from the front rows.

4. The canteen in the Pyramid Stage’s backstage area has been offering slow roast pork belly with Pilton cider sauce or spinach and ricotta tortellini. Alex Turner, still immaculately coiffured and leather jacketed, and Brits winner Ben Howard were spotted tucking in.

5. John Lydon plans for Sunday are to “find everything illegal, do it real well, and not get nicked.”

6. Gobby footballer Joey Barton watched Vampire Weekend’s Pyramid Stage appearance. He didn’t dance though.

7. Theo from Hurts will bow down in front of any woman who instructs him firmly enough.

8. Arctic Monkeys producer and Simian Mobile Disco man James Ford runs like a girl, or at least he was when we saw him sprinting back to hospitality camping.


9. Angus Deayton was at Glastonbury, but he was not having a lovely time.

10. During his afternoon Pyramid Stage slot Kenny Rogers was not impressed by the lacklustre crowd singalong on ‘Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town’. He told the crowd they sang it better in Morocco, and they don’t even speak English there.
