Top Five Moments of the 2017 UK Festival Season

Festival season is over, but don’t fret! Time to look back over the summer with our top five moments of 2017’s festival season.

We can’t believe it’s been a few months since the last festival passed us by. Hold your sobs and dry your wellies, music lovers but from Glastonbury, to DownloadReading & Leeds, there’s little doubt that this year has been a great one.

But although grass is sprouting back on the fields once littered with paper pints and smothered in glitter, not all is lost. Let’s take a look back at the top moments of this year’s festival run.

Here are our top five:

1. Radiohead at Glastonbury Festival

There’s something magical about Worthy Farm in the heat of summer. Add 150,000 festival-goers, 80+ venues, and a myriad of impressive artists, and it’s not difficult to understand why.

Exhibit A: Radiohead, arguably the very best alternative rock band to hail from the 1980s. And when you give a band like Radiohead the headline slot at a festival this extraordinary you know you’re in for something special.

The band’s 25-song set was incredible– Thom Yorke and the crew beginning in a low-key, balladic style. At this point the screens are black, the tone is serene, and the crowd is surprisingly calm.

But when those screens do come on, portraying alien-eqsue images of the band overlaid with each other, shapes, and member of the crowd, things turn up a notch, then another, and another until they’ve pushed through their second encore and swiftly exited the stage.
