Martin Stephenson & The Daintees made their long awaited return to the greatest festival on earth today when they played a storming set to a packed Acoustic Tent at Glastonbury.
An early start after last night’s Liverpool gig meant breakfast on the tour bus with Martin providing the maltesers! After passing through seemingly endless security gates on the way into the festival they chilled backstage while Jake Bugg (renowned for writing the second best song ever called Trouble Town) warmed up the crowd.
Helen McCookerybook managed to get some great pictures for us from backstage including the great shot of Martin and Rolling Stones legend Bill Wyman which has already been tagged “The Way-aye man and The Wyman”
Later in the set Helen joined Martin on-stage for a beautiful version of Airship
Drummer Kate Stephenson summed up the day beautifully for us … “A sea of smiling faces as Martin rocked the house. Wonderful vibe and amazing experience, leaving the festival now. Had the best time. Glasto la vista baby”
