Glastonbury Festival. The biggest festival in the world. The best week of your life. Hosted on a farm in Somerset, only the biggest and best artists get to headline. To give it it's formal name, The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, hosts a wide variety of acts from rock bands, to rappers and even at one time, Port Isaac's Fisherman's Friends.

Michael Eavis, and more recently his daughter Emily, have been running the annual Somerset party since 1970, playing host to classic artists such as The Smiths, Led Zeppelin and Oasis.

Over the last decade, the BBC coverage of Glastonbury has become more extensive than ever, thanks to the introduction of the iPlayer. Due to this, it has become easier than ever to be a part of the festival, whether you are there in person, sliding through the mud, or watching from the comfort of your sofa.

With tickets for the 2020 edition of the festival on sale this week (the 50th anniversary, no less!), here is a run-down of the very best headliners on The Pyramid Stage from the last decade.
