Deep in the heart of Shangri-La, Panic Shack’s early evening slot on the Truth Stage is the sort of feel-good call to attention that truly wakes up Glastonbury 2023. Crunching riffs and a penchant for the fun and mischievous ring true – whether it’s synchronised dance moves, fist-flying breakdowns or fizzing punk fury. Combined, it’s a set that lays out a marker for why Panic Shack have become not just one of the most exciting new bands, but also one of the most beloved. Mission accomplished.
We had Dork’s Patrick Gunning on hand to capture the action.
