Glastonbury on Saturday, as it happened: The Killers bring out Pet Shop Boys and Johnny Marr for guest appearances
Las Vegas rock band brought out a number of special guests as they returned to Worthy Farm
The Las Vegas rock band raced through a string of hits including “The Man”, “Somebody Told Me” and “Mr Brightside”.
This was the second time The Killers have headlined Glastonbury, following a disastrous appearance in 2007.
This attempt seemed to be met with a much better reception, and frontman Brandon Flowers looked ecstatic as he bounded off the stage following a rousing rendition of “Mr Brightside” for their final song.
Across the fourth day of the music festival, fans also experienced sets from Janet Jackson, Johnny Marr, Maggie Rogers, Lewis Capaldi, Liam Gallagher, Sean Paul, Lizzo, Hozier, Slowthai and Hot Chip.
This was on another day where the sun blazed down on Worthy Farm amid reports of a water shortage, which Glastonbury organisers denied – although our team on the ground confirmed there were queues of up to an hour for water refills.

Rosalia at Glastonbury review: The exhilarating, dramatic and startlingly accomplished set of a future headlinerThe IndependentThe 25-year-old who puts a modern spin on old-school flamenco shouldn't have been tucked away in a suffocatingly hot tent at the John Peel stage
Stormzy, it transpires, has it all. Sceptics point to his discography, with its sole full-length, as if he didn’t build his empire on a string of breathtaking singles – as if his legendary Brits performance didn’t have the charisma and vitriolic force of a thousand box-ticking headline sets.
But out of the blocks, the 25-year-old shines. He bounds out to “Know Me From” in a stab-proof vest. Riotous scenes erupt. Shrouded in smoke, he emerges for “First Things First” like a superhero stepping out of a mad scientist’s lab. When he fires up “One Take”, a minor, one-off single from 2016, the crowd unlocks levels of hysteria usually reserved for a Drake cameo.

It might be hard to believe, given the happy, broken, burnt state of festival-goers (myself included - this report comes to you from a two-hour-long shower queue), but technically, yesterday was only day one of Glastonbury.
Rosalía performing “Barefoot in the Park”
Sheryl Crow spent very little time on the Pyramid Stage itself for her afternoon performance - the country pop singer chose instead to wade into the crowd for her euphoric old-school anthems. “All I Wanna Do is Have Some Fun” was the best of them, rallying us into the first mass singalong of the festival.
