Did Bowie beat Adele? All 36 Glastonbury headliner bills, ranked from worst to best

  • Using books and personal reminiscences, countless internet forums and old magazine reports, all headliners are ranked solely on the weight of the three performances. Their rankings are ordered by the day they played (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Vehemently disagree? See you in the comments. 36. The Black Crowes, Lenny Kravitz, Wynton Marsalis (1993) A weird line-up by any standards, partly due to Red Hot Chili Peppers dropping out (Lenny Kravitz stepped in). Anyone actually into music was at the Other Stage to see Suede, Spiritualised and Stereo MCs. Meanwhile the Black Crowes jammed endlessly, Kravitz didn’t really have the songs and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis was… pleasant. 35. Coldplay, Rod Stewart, Stereophonics (2002) Coldplay’s first Pyramid-headlining set caught fire with songs from the yet-to-be-released A Rush of Blood to The Head, but Rod the Mod was ill-fittingly bland, while Stereophonics, although at the peak of their career, lacked the heft to truly shine.
