Happy 50th to Glastonbury Festival! See Top 5 Setlists

If we were living in a sans-COVID timeline, the 50th edition of the legendary Glastonbury Festival would be taking place right now at Worthy Farm in the UK. But we're experiencing a different timeline and although it's challenging, we must keep rolling with the punches, social distancing, and wearing our masks until music festivals can safely return again.
This past weekend did not go by in vain, however. Fans from all over the world got to celebrate the 50th anniversary from their homes this year, which is a great option for those that live in different countries and have never been able to experience the epic fest. BBC hosted an array of classic Glastonbury sets across TV, radio and online over the weekend (June 26-28) so that people could revisit, or watch for the first time some incredible performances from over the years.
As a follow up, we've made a list of the Top 5 Setlists from the performances that were showcased on BBC the past few days. Take a look!
