‘Mudfest’ ends with blasts from the past

jay-zee.jpgBritain’s Glastonbury music festival was wrapping up Sunday with a
double bill of golden oldies following controversy over its first ever
hip-hop headliner, Jay-Z, and troubled star Amy Winehouse.

Leonard
Cohen, 73, and Neil Diamond, 67, are the biggest draws on the final day
alongside headliners The Verve, one of the biggest Britpop bands of the
1990s, who reformed last year.

Earlier, Michael Eavis, the
farmer who has hosted the annual mudfest on his land almost every year
since 1970, hailed Jay-Z’s performance as "a triumph" which had proved
doubters wrong

‘I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury, it’s wrong’
.

He also defended Winehouse, who appeared to lash out at a fan during her set on Saturday.
