The Magic Gang soar at Glastonbury 2017

There's fairy dust throughout.
Festivals are intense. Bands stomp through their set, hard decisions are around every corner, and there’s always something else on. Time is of the essence, and there’s never quite enough.

Luckily for Glastonbury, The Magic Gang are here to bring some much-needed serenity. Glorious harmony reigns as the band, who’ve slowly evolved into something truly miraculous, cooly and calmly drift through 30 minutes of bliss.

The Magic Gang haven’t lost any of their urgency, they still inspire grimy excitement, but they’ve topped it all up with a knowing confidence. ‘How Can I Compete’ is, of course, a highlight in a field of many but there’s fairy dust throughout. The good times don’t just roll, they soar.
