Cyrus starred as the troubled pop star in season five, episode three of the Netflix anthology series – Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too. 

Donning Ashley O’s iconic pink wig, she performed the Nine Inch Nails remake ‘On A Roll’ and a cover of the actual tune ‘Head Like A Hole.’ 


To kick off her Glastonbury set, Cyrus treated crowds to ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ with the one and only Mark Ronson on keys. Later, she welcomed Papa Cyrus AKA Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X onstage for a performance of CHOON ‘Old Town Road.’ Lil Nas X later performed ‘Panini’ off his recently released EP, 7. 

Black Mirror season one to five / Bandersnatch is streaming on Netflix now.

Oh, and ‘On A Roll’ is available to stream on Spotify… because of course it is.

The festival’s closing day also featured queen Kylie Minogue, Vampire Weekend, and Janelle Monáe to name just three.

David Attenborough, yes – Sir David Attenborough – also briefly appeared on the Glastonbury stage to thank punters for going plastic-free for the first time in Glastonbury’s 49-year history. He also promoted his new BBC natural history series Seven Worlds, One PlanetThe documentary boasts an epic soundtrack with music by Sia and Hans Zimmer. 

Attenborough told the crowd: “That is more than a million bottles of water that have not been drunk by you in plastic. Thank you! Thank you.” 

The oceans cover two-thirds of this planet of ours, there’s one third that we occupy all the time, the land only covers one third of the globe. There are seven great continents on which we human beings live. Each of them has its own marvellous creatures – birds and mammals, animals of all kinds. Each of them has its own glory, each of them has its own problems.
