As people lie back and sift through the remains of what turned out to be one hell of a party, many news articles have appeared giving the readers the ultimate lowdown on Glastonbury Music Festival 2015.

The most prominent incident at the Glastonbury festival was obviously the Kanye West and Lee Nelson face off. Many people loved it as a dishy side dish to an already happy occasion. Many others called it a cheap stunt. Everybody talked about it enough to make it a trending topic across the globe.

The Who were another big act who decided to take on Kanye’s challenge of being the greatest living rock star on the planet. They mocked him and said, “We’re going to send you home now with a rebellious, ‘Oh yeah, who’s the biggest f—ing rock star in the world?’” Well, apparently, Kanye is on his way still and these guys have owned the rock arena.

The BBC reported some weird things that went on at the festival. The Dalai Lama celebrated his Birthday with Patti Smith, who sang the birthday song for him. He said that he admired all the musicians present, especially those with white hair. I just hope he isn’t going to start a skinhead rock band because he was so inspired by the big time rockers. But all this is obviously stale news.

The strangest gig to draw the crowds was the king of soul, Lionel Ritchie. Ritchie drew in the biggest audience at the festival. People were drawn to him like moths to a flame, to repeat an old cliché. People made the most pleasant memories at his gig too. Some picked up others to sit on their shoulders as Lionel Ritchie crooned his big hit, ‘dancing on the ceiling.’ Is Soul music about to make a comeback? It might just do that in Britain at least.
