Spontaneous sets, an influx of legends and one seriously sludgy dancefloor. Here’s our pick of the performances at Glastonbury 2014.

Ellie Goulding, Burn
The energetic gyrating, the echoing vocals … that gold bralet. Ellie totally knows how to win over a 60,000-strong crowd.

Kasabian, Eez-Eh
Celebrating 10 years in the business this summer, the Kasabian boys were destined to be on an all-time high. Their performance of new single Eez-Eh and cover of Gnarles Barkley’s Crazy totally rocked.

Dolly Parton, Jolene
There were rhinestones, there was line dancing…we were a tiny bit disappointed that goddaughter Miley Cyrus didn’t appear for a special rendition of Twerking 9-5, but we swear we actually soared with the crowd through Joleeeeeeene.

Jake Bugg – What Doesn’t Kill You
Leapfrogging from an afternoon Pyramid stage slot to be the Other stage’s headline act in the space of just a year, Mr Bugg totally held his own in the big league.

Disclosure and Sam Smith, Latch
Disclosure’s whole set was pretty epic but it was a really special moment when they brought Sam out for their finale – performing the song that broke his career.

Bombay Bicycle Club, Carry Me
The BBC boys did a surprise set on the, erm actual BBC’s Introducing stage, causing huge crowds to quickly change direction and flock to the spontaneous gig. Chaos, but fanastic.

Sam Smith, Money On My Mind
Riding high on his first solo smash hit, you can tell Sam Smith is loving every minute of his Glasto debut.

Ed Sheeran, Sing
We LOVE a sing-along. More than anything. Ever.

Blondie, Atomic
Debbie Harry reportedly banned photographers from taking close-ups during her set. Here’s Blondie’s performace of Atomic, shot from a safe, flattering distance of course…

Metallica, One
The 33 year-old mega-band managed to stay sober, smash all of their greatest hits and be done before bed time at 11:45. Rock on.
