How Leeds United stole the show at Glastonbury

Over the weekend just gone many of you will have tuned in for the Glastonbury highlights.

Of course, because of the coronavirus pandemic the fun at Worthy Farm couldn’t happen this year which left many of us devastated. Although the BBC has done a pretty good job of providing a Glasto fix with lots of highlights from years gone by airing.  

Seeing all the top acts performing got us thinking back to last year when arguably (in our opinion anyways) Leeds United well and truly stole the show.

In 2019, all eyes were on Worthy Farm to see The Killers, Stormzy, The Cure and a host of other big name acts. But throughout the weekend, we kept seeing little nods to Leeds United in the form of the flags fans had brought to the main stages.

Leeds United flags were cropping up all over the Glastonbury site, including one showing Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa on his famed bucket with some binoculars – a cheeky reference to the infamous Spygate scandal.

Hundreds of thousands of people were at the festival, and millions watching on TV – yet, still, Leeds United managed to hog some of the limelight.

Other flags were seen on TV, including this one which was front and centre for Johnny Marr’s performance.

Away from Glastonbury, as you’d expect, we’ve seen lots of love for Leeds United at Leeds Festival in recent times also.

From fans in kits at the Bramham Park site to big acts making reference to the Whites.

We are sure we’ll have a look back at some of those things as we get near to what should have been Leeds Festival in August.

Again, that’s another event unable to happen this year because of Covid-19.
