Bjork Brings Colourful End To Glasto Other Stage

Bjork Brings Colourful End To Glasto Other Stage

Bjork headlined the Other Stage last night (June 22), marking her return to Worthy Farm after thirteen years.

Coming on stage 25 minutes later than scheduled Bjork wowed a massive Glastonbury festival crowd just after 11.30pm.

Dressed in vivid green, the ethereal Icelandic singer began with 'Earth Intruders' and 'Venus As A Boy.'

Flanked on stage by huge multi-colourful flag bearers, and percussionists, the show was theatrical, Bjork changing costumes at several points during her 16-track show.

The stunning show was completed with the all-incompasing attack from green laser effects, and futuristic computor screens at the side of the stage - the pinancle of which was a truly all-sense engaging 'Army Of Me.'

Other highlights from Glastonbury's opening day included Super Furry Animals, Rufus Wainwright and a surprise performance by Lily Allen.

Arcade Fire caused a major sing-along with 'Colder' at the end of their set on the Other Stage, and the Hold Steady rocked a packed John Peel Tent.

Also, apparently, Chas 'N' Dave went down a storm too!
