83 incredible photos at Worthy Farm for Glastonbury 2023

Glastonbury 2023 comes to a close tonight after yet another huge weekend of festivities.

Hundreds of thousands of people descended on Worthy Farm from Wednesday for one of the world’s best festivals – and it has not disappointed. From huge headliners to surprise guests, Glastonbury 2023 has been one for the books.

Arctic Monkeys topped the bill on Friday night on the Pyramid Stage, marking their third time headlining the festival, having previously done so in 2007 and 2013. Saturday night saw US rockers Guns N’ Roses headline, after the original line-up of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan reunited in 2015. Lizzo performed an incredible set beforehand and had fans dancing away.

Sir Elton John’s headline slot tonight has already drawn huge crowds, with some fans waiting at the Pyramid Stage for as much as 17 hours before he was set to start. The performance marks the end of his scheduled farewell tour dates in the UK. Yusuf/Cat Stevens also performed during the teatime legends slot this afternoon, followed by classic rock outfit Blondie.


Also on the bill across the weekend were Christine And The Queens, Lana Del Rey, Lewis Capaldi and Lil Nas X. Some of the highlight performances of the weekend came from Fatboy Slim, Manic Street Preachers, Lizzo, Foo Fighters and The Pretenders.
