It was highly appropriate that Glastonbury Festival 2013 ended with an all-star version of "With a Little Help From My Friends."

As ever, the festival had no shortage of individual star power. But it was the unifying moments when bands and audiences combined – as on the massive singalong when Vampire Weekend, the Vaccines, the Staves and First Aid Kit joined Mumford & Sons for their festival-closing take on the Beatles' classic – that made Glastonbury's return after a year off such a memorable event.

More highlights from Glastonbury to come this week. Enjoy!
