Battle of the bands: #Glastonbury highlights

Glastonbury once again had a great line-up which helped distract from the soggy weather.

The gong goes to Metallica whose Saturday night performance even inspired a volume of tweets in the sign of the horns!

Close behind was Dolly Parton, who trounced Sunday headliners Kasabian and cool kids Arcade Fire, Lana Del Rey and Haim.

See the visualisation below for more detail and the top tweets over the weekend.

In case you missed it: Last week we showed how the excitement built up for Glastonbury.
