Glastonbury at 40!

The world's greatest music festival, Glastonbury in England is well underway and some amazing events have all ready popped off for the festivals 40th anniversay. Gorillaz who stepped in for U2, who were forced to cancel due to Bono's emergency back surgery, pulled out all the stops as Paul Simonon and Mick Jones from The Clash are now in the band's touring line up and special guests Lou Reed, Mark E Smith, Snoop Dogg and Bobby Womack all joined Damon Albarn's animated band. Yet, that was not the only suprise of the weekend, as Radiohead performed a special surprise acoustic set! Kylie Minogue joined Scissor Sisters, Shakira covered The xx and the grand daddy of them all Edge joined Muse for a epic rendition of "Where the Streets Have No Name." Take a look and a look back at other Glasto performances through the years:
