UK Festival Crowds Are Being Called Best In The World After Unbelievable Scenes At Glasto

UK Festival Crowds Are Being Called Best In The World After Unbelievable Scenes At Glasto

People are saying the UK festival crowds are the best in the world after seeing them in action at Glastonbury. Watch them going for it here:

As Billie Eilish, 20, took to the Pyramid Stage last night (Friday 24 June), the crowds went unsurprisingly wild as she became the youngest Glastonbury headliner ever – treating fans to an energetic set filled with everything from family videos to fireworks.

Many people watching along at home couldn’t help but notice the energy from the audience, with many arguing that the UK does it better than anyone else.

Sharing footage from Eilish’s set on TikTok, user @bad_karma.co.uk wrote: “UK crowds>>US crowds.” 

And it seems to be a pretty common consensus, with someone else tweeting: “My GOD the crowd!! UK festival crowds s**t on american festival crowds!! sorry not sorry xx #BillieEilish #glastonburyfestival2022.” 

Another said: “Getting a vpn so you can watch billie [perform] at glastonbury, UK crowds are unmatched.” 

Posting another clip from the set, another added: "Living proof uk crowds are superior to us crowds."

And it wasn’t just Eilish who got people into the spirit, as it seems to generally be the theme of the festival:

One other person said: "UK crowds never miss at festivals."

Another agreed: "UK crowds go f**kin crazy."

Eilish's historic set made her the youngest ever solo headliner at the festival, coming out onto the stage shortly after 10pm and telling her audience: "Oh boy, I love you so much."

In a mock English accent, she then said: "How are you doin?"

Eilish later took a moment to use her platform to slam the Roe v Wade ruling, having brought out her brother Finneas to perform 'Try Not To Abuse Your Power' in protest of the decision made yesterday that will see millions of women in the US lose the right to a safe abortion.

Before the song, Eilish said: "Today is a really, really dark day for women in the US and I'm just going to say that because I can't bear to think about it any longer at this moment."

She then launched into an incredible rendition of her hit song that felt all the more pertinent given that the singer is one of many young US women who are having to deal with living in a country that clearly doesn't respect their rights.

Paul McCartney – the festival's oldest-ever headliner – is set to take to the Pyramid Stage today (25 June), before the Sunday afternoon Legend slot will welcome Diana Ross.

The festival will be closed by Kendrick Lamar later that day.
