Emily Eavis hails Glastonbury 2019 as "best one yet"


A jubilant Emily Eavis has hailed the 2019 edition of Glastonbury Festival as the “best one yet” after witnessing The Cure see out the weekend with a monster headline set on the Pyramid Stage.

Glastonbury Festival has witnessed headline performances from the likes of Stormzy, The Killers, Tame Impala, Chemical Brothers and more in yet another landmark year. Even considering the names on the top of the bill, lower down the likes of Idles, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher and the many hundreds of other performers managed to see out the weekend in spectacular style.

In reflection, co-organiser Emily Eavis was in buoyant mood: “Absolutely, no doubt about it. The greatest show on planet Earth,” she told the Glastonbury Free Press. “This is, without question, the best Glastonbury ever,” she added.

After discussing some of the best performances of the weekend, Eavis said “I am speechless,” in regards to Stormzy’s headline act on Friday evening. “That gig was incredible! What a man,” she added.

Eavis continued: “It was a huge moment for us, up there with the all-time greatest Glastonbury headline performances and one for the history books! 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.”
