Slaves at Glastonbury: We jumped into the pit for these unbelievably rowdy snaps

Slaves have fast become a Glastonbury staple since first appearing at the John Peel Stage in 2015, and made their third appearance on The Other Stage this Sunday (June 30). It felt right then to send NME‘s Andy Hughes right down the front and into the pit to capture these glorious and chaotic shots. He made it out alive, we promise.
