The long awaited return of Glastonbury was warmly received by festival-goers and all those watching along on the BBC in record numbers, with headliners Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar topping a packed bill full of surprises, special guests, and important messages.
From the appearance of young climate activist, Greta Thunberg, to the northern powerhouse of Blossoms and Melanie C performing “Spice up Your Life”, it really was a Glastonbury to remember. Not to mention the already iconic Paul McCartney set, which welcomed Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen to the Pyramid Stage on Saturday.
Now, a study from RantCasino.com has sought out the most popular performances from the weekend based on YouTube hits, and you may be surprised by the outcome… (study released 30.06.22)
