DAY Three of Glastonbury Festival 2023 was another belter, in every way.

The weather was ideal, the music was vast and the food (that I ate anyway) was incredible.

Festival-goers lathered on sun cream ahead of a day filled with anticipation with rumours that Foo Fighters and Fatboy Slim would be making secret set appearances.

And they both did. And they were both brilliant. Obviously.

Ben Howard kicked things off on The Other Stage and he was followed by The Hives who truly rocked out in front of a huge crowd.

On the Pyramid Stage, The Master Musicians of Joujouka opened and were followed by Maisie Peters on what was a special day for the young singer.

Elsewhere, on the Woodsies stage, Ukrainian all-female punk rock bad The Sixters shared a poignant moment with festival-goers.

Fashion icon Gok Wan even got the people dancing with his DJ set on The Glade.

As the temperature cooled, albeit just a little, Foo Fighters shocked (maybe not) the Glastonbury community with their surprise set under The Churnups alias. It was class by the way.

Hoards of people moved from the Pyramid Stage to The Other Stage to catch the sensation that has become of Fred Again…

His chilled-out tunes put at least 100,000 people in a trance, and it was truly a unique experience to see him on such a large scale.

Back to The Pyramid stage, Friday’s headliners Arctic Monkeys and the rock band revisited their chart-topping back catalogue as well as tracks from their 2022 release The Car as they took to the main stage.

Although he kept crowd interaction minimal, Turner said he was “glad to be back” and smashed through song after song, declaring “the Monkeys are back on the farm… wow”.

Mixed in with all of that, there was so much going on, comedians, contemporary art, a Joe Wicks exercise in the morning, the list truly does go on.

It has been said many times before, but there is nowhere quite like Glastonbury.
