Watch the 11 best live performances at Glastonbury 2015

Glastonbury: it’s a festival experience that’s been described as both the greatest in the world and a living hell on earth (as one writer recently opined on our sister site FasterLouder). It’s the kind of rain-sodden, three-day epic that can lead to moments of true spiritual bliss, like watching veteran dance act Faithless convert 90,000 pop-punk fans with one massive set.

But it’s also the kind of festival where you can wind up mysteriously regaining consciousness on the complete opposite side of the enormous festival site, with no memory of what happened and a missing tooth to boot (which did actually happen to a friend – lucky Glasto’s so big they have their own on-site orthodontist).

If you don’t have the money or will to experience the insanity of Glastonbury for yourself, luckily the BBC live-streams selected performances from the three-day line-up, and various ‘best of’ clips have started popping up online. There’s a whole lot of them, but don’t worry, we’ve dug through the depths of YouTube and pulled out the very best live moments in dance music and general amazingness that went on during Glastonbury 2015.

From Caribou jamming out Can’t Do Without You live to Jamie xx sending the crowd into raptures with Loud Places, Deadmau5 trolling the crowd by stopping for a beer with Left Shark midway through Seeya, and Kanye’s impassioned sing-along medley of Blood on the Leaves and Heartless, here are the 11 best live clips from Glastonbury 2015.


#11 The Chemical Brothers – Saturate


#10 SBTRKT – New Dorp. New York


#9 Jon Hopkins – Open Eye Signal


#8 Rudimental – Never Let You Go


#7 Jamie xx – Loud Places
