The final day of Glastonbury 2022
Glastonbury is back after three long years, as earlier this week, on Wednesday, the 22nd of June, the Festival finally opened its gates in what was a very emotional start to the Festival.
Thursday followed suit and kept energies high as thousands more Glasto-goers arrived on site – despite the continued rail strikes and thunderstorm warnings from Met Office.
Friday saw the main stages open and featured performances from the likes of Foals, The Libertines, Sam Fender, St Vincent, IDLES, Blossoms, Sigrid, Phoebe Bridgers and Primal Scream – with a headline set on the Pyramid Stage from Billie Eilish which made history as the youngest ever solo artist to headline the Festival, at only 20 years old.
Saturday featured another historic moment when Paul McCartney took to the Pyramid Stage at 9:30pm – and by doing so made him the oldest Glastonbury headliner, at 80 years young.
If that wasn’t enough, the legendary Beatle brought out a couple of surprises in the form of Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen who joined him on the Pyramid Stage.
Today, Sunday the 26th of June, is the final day of the Festival and will feature performances from Black Dyke Band (Pyramid Stage – 11:30am), Legends Slot performer Diana Ross (Pyramid Stage – 4:00pm), Elbow (Pyramid Stage – 17:45), Years & Years (Other Stage – 7:45pm), Courtney Barnett (Park Stage – 9:15), Pet Shop Boys (Other Stage – 9:40), Bicep (West Holts – 9:45pm) – before Kendrick Lamar headlines the Pyramid Stage at 9:45pm.
As always, if you’re not attending the Festival, BBC has you covered with wall-to-wall coverage and will continue live streaming hours of live music from the main stages so you can enjoy the Festival from the comfort of your home – more on this below.

Met Office weather forecast: Sunday
Met Office weather forecasts rain and sunny spells for Sunday.
Despite some wind and rain at times, the weather has been holding up nicely for the most part of the Festival, with mostly dry conditions so far.
On the last day of festivities, Met Office predicts much of the same with sunny spells and blustery showers through the day, reaching a maximum temperature of 21°C.
That said, there's a possibility of heavier rain heading into the evening as Kendrick Lamar prepares to take to the Pyramid Stage for his much-anticipated headline slot.
Unsettled conditions will pick back up as we head into Monday for the exodus of campers and the start of the clear-up, with more showers expected.
