Set List Glastonbury: Flaming Lips, Pretenders & Radiohead

by VVN Music

Unlike big U.S. festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo, the Glastonbury Festival in England is a real hot bed for performances by veteran artists.

Along with the pre-headliner spot on Sunday night, which has hosted such greats in the past as Tom Jones, Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton, there are also veterans peppered throughout the days at the various stages around the festival grounds.

The Flaming Lips saluted David Bowie with their cover of his Space Oddity along with three songs from their 2006 album At War With the Mystics and two each from The Soft Bulletin (1999), Yoshimmi Battles the Pink Robots (2002) and their latest Oczy Mlody (2017).
