Glastonbury ’99 Playlist Celebrates 25th Anniversary

“I think it was maybe a moment for R.E.M. and the UK where we had kind of been forgotten or pushed aside by younger bands, and that was a particular moment at Glastonbury where I think we pulled ourselves back to the front of the line and actually proved, this is what we’re capable of. It was a great show for us. . . the band really stepped up. It’s such a beloved and legendary event that, you know, whatever stars are aligned for us personally and as a group; we managed to show the best of ourselves at each of the shows we played there.” – Michael speaking on the band’s first appearance at Glastonbury (June 25, 1999) when they headlined the main Pyramid Stage

To mark the 25th anniversary of that memorable performance, here’s a playlist you can stream wherever you get your music.
