The Cure brought the curtain down on Glastonbury 2019 yesterday as the final Pyramid Stage headliner of the weekend.

There’d been standout performances since Friday morning from the likes of Idles, Slowthai, Johnny Marr and Christine & The Queens, while Kylie Minogue and the Sunday afternoon ‘legends’ slot once again delivered one of the festival’s biggest crowds.

It’ll be probably be Stormzy though who’s remembered as defining this year’s event; indeed co-organiser Emily Eavis has told the Glastonbury Free Press (via NME) that his Friday night headline performance left her ‘speechless’ and contributed to what she believes was ‘the best Glastonbury ever’.

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

“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.”
