Elbow, who released their highly acclaimed seventh studio album ‘Little Fictions’ in February, thrilled fans at June’s Glastonbury festival by delivering a secret set on The Park Stage.

During the band’s secret set, a jovial Garvey decided to give the boisterous crowd a rendition of a new ‘song’ that he dedicated to Glastonbury’s founder, Michael Eavis.

One day, a dairy farmer had an idea,” Garvey began in song, imploring the crowd to do a call-and-response. “And that’s why we’re here. He decided, year on year, to throw the best party, in the world.

Elsewhere in Elbow’s secret set, Garvey displayed what appeared to be a new ‘worker bee’ tattoo – a symbol which has come to symbolise the enduring spirit of Manchester in the wake of May’s terror attack in the city.
