Beach House battle through Glastonbury technical difficulties due to ‘too much MDMA’

Baltimore band bring the 'good vibes' to Worthy Farm

Beach House blamed technical difficulties during their set at Glastonbury today (June 26) on “too much MDMA”.

Singer Victoria Legrand made the admission after the band halted their performance of recent album ‘Teen Dream’‘s opening song ‘Zebra’, drawing laughter from the crowd. The band went on to restart the song without any further problems.

Earlier in their set on The Park Stage, the Baltimore act commented on how much they were enjoying the festival so far, saying they felt like they were bringing the “good vibes” to Worthy Farm.


Their performance – which leaned heavily on ‘Teen Dream’ tracks – saw hundreds of fans fill out the grass verge in front of the stage, with many choosing to sit due to the blistering sun.

Beach House played:

‘Walk In The Park’
‘Lover Of Mine’
‘Silver Soul’
‘Better Times’
‘Take Care’
’10 Mile Stereo’
