Bastille played a secret set at Glastonbury 2022 tonight (June 23), backed by the 10-piece brass band Ol’ Dirty Brasstards.The band were the surprise guests on the William’s Green stage and performed after festival founder Michael Eavis’ traditional covers set.“Tonight we are Brasstille and the Brasstards… or something,” Bastille frontman Dan Smith joked as the expanded band took to the stage.

As fans waited for the set to begin, they chanted the refrain from their hit single ‘Pompeii’.The secret performance began with a version of the band’s 2016 single ‘Good Grief’, before Smith told the crowd: “We are so ridiculously fucking happy to be at Glastonbury.” Smith said afterwards, “I can’t believe we get to play after Michael Eavis, what the fuck.”As the set continued, Bastille aired versions of ‘Things We Lost In The Fire’ and ‘Quarter Past Midnight’, both backed by rousing crowd singalongs. “This next song is incredibly sad but sounds happy,” the singer said as he introduced ‘Survivin’’, which featured on the 2020 EP ‘Goosebumps’.The band also played their now-traditional mash-up of ‘Rhythm Of The Night’ by Corona and ‘Rhythm Is A Dancer’ by Snap!, dubbed ‘Of The Night’.

Before each chorus, Smith conducted the packed tent in getting down to the ground before jumping up as one for a euphoric refrain.To close the set out, Bastille finished with ‘Shut Off The Lights’ from their latest album ‘Give Me The Future’, an Americana-tinged version of Marshmello collab ‘Happier’, and ‘Pompeii’.
