“This is, without question, the best Glastonbury ever.”

Eavis also described how Stormzy’s performance left her “speechless” after he silenced his doubters with a massive headline slot on the Pyramid Stage.

“I am speechless, that gig was incredible! What a man, she said.

“It was a huge moment for us, up there with the all-time greatest Glastonbury headline performances and one for the history books! The perfect gig. I’m so happy for him, it could not have been better.”

Eavis added: “It also confirmed for me that our crowd is the best in the world. Watching that huge audience lock in and give so much back was very moving. The atmosphere was incredible. But then it has been since the gates opened.”
