The BBC at Glastonbury 2014 (Sunday): Dolly Parton plays ‘Jolene’ at the Pyramid Stage

Wherever you were this weekend, whether you were at Worthy Farm or not, us here at TGTF have you covered when it comes to Glastonbury 2014. The dedicated people they are, the folks at the BBC have been working all hours during the festival and feeding us live coverage as it becomes available. What does this mean for you? We’ll be passing along all the best bits to you, our faithful readers.

Depending on the company you were with when the announcement was made that Dolly Parton would be playing the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2014, you either were met with happiness, silence or laughter. I have to admit, I thought the latter: how is (I say this with love) a country bumpkin going to fit in at the biggest stage of the biggest music festival in the world?

Quite well, actually. According to the Telegraph’s Neil McCormick, she stole the show, err, festival. Watch as the audience is putty in her hands during a rousing performance of ‘Jolene’, which included the barrier security getting in the act with their own dance routine to the song. (Really.)

And that’s a wrap, folks! Until next year’s Glasto, this is TGTF signing off. Many thanks to the BBC for including us in the press pool for the event. For more of the BBC’s Glastonbury coverage online, head this way.
