Friday, 28/06/2019:

The first day of Glastonbury 2019 saw soaring temperatures and life-changing moments. Fans revelled in the diverse range of food on offer, appeasing the appetite of both vegans and meat eaters.

But there was one man who stole the show and filled the field with excited ticket holders; Stormzy. As the second Black artist to take the stage by storm, behind Skin from Skunk Anansie in 1999, he made a political message with the song Vossy Bop, adorn in a bespoke stab-proof vest.

George Ezra

The relaxed English musician took to the sage on Friday, serenading the audience with his whimsical, charming music. Originally from Hertfordshire, 26-year-old George Ezra first released music in 2013 with two EP’s named Did You Hear The Rain? and Cassy O’. Rising to fame with his hit single, Budapest, the singer won the Brit Award for British Male Solo Artist in early 2019.

Described by the Guardian’s Laura Snapes as a “sunbeam blast of charisma”, George’s set had crowds swaying and singing along to his summery songs. Reportedly treating the headline performance “like any other show”, the humble singer played homage to the sunshine with such hits as Shotgun and Budapest, keeping his audience hooked until the very last chord.

If you watched his set with envy, then we have some good news for you. George Ezra is available to book through Champions Music & Entertainment, as the perfect addition to any event. Whether you want to slow dance to Hold My Girl at your wedding or feature his soulful voice at your own festival, George Ezra’s Glastonbury performance could feature on your stage.

Tom Odell

After growing up surrounded by Elton John and David Bowie, Tom Odell developed his natural, unique vocal style. In 2012 he released his debut EP, Songs from Another Love, which quickly gained critical acclaim in the form of a Brit Critics’ Choice Award. In the following year, he released his debut studio album, Long Way Down, which was followed by his second and third albums, Wrong Crowd and Jubilee Road. In recognition of his lyrical mastery, Tom won the Ivor Novello Award, Songwriter of the Year, in 2014.

Tom took to the piano as a hush fell over the crowd on Friday afternoon. Once the melody picked up, it didn’t take long for the audience to start stamping their feet and clapping their hands to the pace of Another Love. Backed by a full band, his performance was equally moving as it was beautiful.

Similarly to George Ezra, Tom Odell is the missing piece to your sophisticated occasion. Tom Odell’s Glastonbury performance was filled with soaring vocals and empowering instrumentals, the perfect combination for private functions and popular festivals.

Riding high on their 11 years of success, Vampire Weekend released their fourth album, Father of the Bride, in 2019.

With a mix of their own music and covers of Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere and Chicago's Summer In The Park, audiences were spoilt for choice with Vampire Weekend’s performance. The relaxed set got the audience involved by asking them to make requests, this resulted in the band playing their classic hits Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa and Giant. As the sun set, the audience bobbed along to the tinkling melodies and laid back vocals, lapping up the last few rays of sunlight on the grass.

Kylie Minogue

One of the most recognisable Queens of Pop, Kylie Minogue needs no introduction. The Australian singer had her first taste of fame from the soap opera Neighbours, before taking position behind the mic. She has since received critical acclaim and international success, with songs like Can’t Get You Out Of My Head soaring to the top of the charts. Recognised as the highest-selling Australian of all time, Kylie has been awarded a Grammy Award, three Brit Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards and two MTV Europe Music Awards to date. However, with more music set to be released, her list of accolades will certainly increase.

Kylie had filled her stage with metal structures and pastel covered dancers, creating a feast for the audience’s eyes. With her infectious energy and recognisable hits, even the volunteers guarding the perimeter of the stage were dancing along. Kylie sounded as good live as she does pre-recorded, effortlessly strutting around the stage in a sparkly gold ensemble. The performance was evidently emotional for the disco queen, as she thanked the audience for their dedication and support.

Kylie Minogue’s Glastonbury performance was met with thousands of cheering fans, who sang along to each and every song the Australian performed. If you need more budget-friendly options then we have you covered, with our range of Kylie Minogue tribute acts who are eager to do the singer justice.
