" The 20 greatest Glastonbury performances ranked...

;)A gigantic crowd stretching away
over hill and vale.
     
A generation s prejudices and expectations overturned like a flick of dust off the shoulder. A 40-minute blast of pure, undiluted zeitgeist. A setlist chiselled into quicksilver by Zeus and carried to the stage by a choir of winged roadies. Or maybe just the Dalai Lama, blowing out the candles on a birthday cake.

These are just a few of the reasons why a gig playing out on the hallowed grounds of Worthy Farm might go down in Glastonbury folklore  - one of those iconic moments that don t just make the weekend, but mark out the evolution of pop culture. Glastonbury is where musical history is made and cultural colossi are crowned on a near-annual basis...
