Glastonbury, despite being geographically closer to a number of lesser-known Somerset-based football clubs, is much like the Manchester United of the music festival world.

The world of One Direction fandom has exploded after a reviewer compared their single Best Song Ever to The Who‘s classic 1971 track Baba O’Riley, unintentionally and hilariously exposing teenage 1D fans to music that was released last century.

So years of planning, months of speculation and two weeks of programming that has never made me feel more lazy and unfit all boiled down to this, the closing ceremony. Though given the extensive musical element of the event, it was more like a festival with hundreds of people in themed tracksuits. It was a
Roger Daltrey, the iconic lead singer of The Who, will be doing a number of Australian tour dates in April 2012 on the back of his appearance on Byron Bay’s Bluesfest 2012 line-up.
