Mumford & Sons brought Glastonbury festival to a close on Sunday night, June 30. The band hit the Pyramid Stage at the festival and performed some of their hits, including "I Will Wait", "Little Lion Man", "The Cave", and "Dust Bowl Dance", in front of 80,000 fans.
It was Mumford & Sons' first live performance since bassist Ted Dwane underwent surgery to remove a bloodclot found on his brain. "We've danced together, we've celebrated the fact that Ted is alive together, shall we sing together, Glastonbury?" frontman Marcus Mumford said to the crowd.
The 90-minute performance ended with New York rockers Vampire Weekend, Swedish duo First Aid Kit and British rock band The Vaccines joining Mumford & Sons onstage to perform "A Little Help From My Friend". Keyboardist Ben Lovett then took the mic to thank Michael Eavis, the founder of music festival for "letting us be complete idiots on their farm for a couple of days."
Previously, rock band The Rolling Stones headlined the same festival. The Rolling Stones made their first live appearance at the U.K.'s biggest music festival on Saturday, June 29. The Mick Jagger-fronted band performed some of their classic hits like "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)", "Paint it Black", "Wild Horses", "Gimme Shelter" and "Sympathy for the Devil".
