GLASTONBURY'S GRAND FINALE
Coldplay's show was full of gestures to other bands and the Glastonbury spirit
Coldplay have given Glastonbury's grand finale, with a little help from the Bee Gees.
Barry Gibb joined the band for two Bee Gee covers: To Love Somebody and what Chris Martin called "the greatest song of all time", Stayin' Alive.
Gibb was meant to play Glastonbury's "legend" slot this year, but pulled out when a family member fell ill.
The Bee Gee tribute came towards the end of a multicoloured, carnivalesque set that defied the pouring rain.
Bathed in colour, the band took the stage at 21:30, launching into A Head Full Of Dreams, accompanied by fireworks and rainbow glitter cannons.
"This is our favourite place in the world!" declared Chris Martin as he played the opening chords to Yellow.
