Mumford and Sons joined by Vaccines and Vampire Weekend to close Glastonbury

After Saturday’s headlining set by The Rolling Stones showed how 60s classics still stand up, it seemed appropriate that Glastonbury ended with a song written by the group’s contemporaries, The Beatles.

As Sunday headliners Mumford and Sons took to the stage for their encore, they were joined by the members of Vampire Weekend, The Vaccines and The Staves for a rousing rendition of the Fab Four’s ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’.

The rest of the band’s set comprised of the material from their two albums, including hits such as ‘Little Lion Man’ and ‘I Will Wait’. This was the band’s fifth appearance at Glastonbury Festival, but their first as a main stage headliner.

Earlier in the weekend, banjo player Winston Marshall said the band were nervous about the slot, saying: “Fear. There’s a lot of fear involved,” he said. “There’s never been any higher expectation for any show. We’re excited and terrified.”
