Shania Twain’s ‘Life-Changing’ Glastonbury Set Delights Cowboy Hat Crowd

Shania Twain described her Glastonbury Festival set as “life changing,” as she was joined by thousands of music fans wearing cowboy hats at Worthy Farm. The Canadian country singer, aged 58, took to the stage for the festival’s Legends slot, delivering a performance filled with her iconic hits. She opened her set with “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and closed with the energizing “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!”

Twain appeared in a ruffled pink ensemble that she later stripped off to reveal a black mini-dress. She revealed that she had explored the festival site ahead of her performance, sharing her amazement with the crowd by saying, “This really is a city, it’s a community.” During her set, she told the audience, “I find moments like this very life changing.” Twain is also gearing up for a headline performance at Hyde Park’s British Summer Time (BST) festival on July 7, where she’ll be accompanied by special guests The Corrs.

Earlier on Sunday, Paloma Faith took to the Pyramid Stage, delivering relationship advice aimed specifically at men. After leading the audience in a singalong of her track “Sweatpants” from her latest album “The Glorification Of Sadness,” which touches on the end of a relationship, Faith shared her thoughts on dating apps. She labeled them the “wild west” for people seeking connections, suggesting that modern dating has become quite complicated.

Faith, who walked the stage barefoot and dressed in a tight pink-and-red dress, discussed the importance of cooperation in relationships. “Try and stay together, but it’s the resentment that’s the problem,” she said, making a plea to heterosexual men: “…if a woman does the same action every single day, it means it needs doing, so don’t wait to ask to do it, just do it.” Despite battling a sore throat that caused her to cancel a gig in Southampton’s Guildhall Square earlier in the week, Faith powered through her performance using her impressive vocal range. The production team, however, appeared to caution her via her earpiece to stop talking and wrap up her slot, to which she responded, “I’ve talked too much, so I’m not allowed to address you again.”

Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett was seen attending Faith’s set, and it was also reportedly watched by former Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker. Meanwhile, Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis spoke about the festival’s future plans in the event’s resident newspaper, Glastonbury Free Press. She confirmed that 2026 will be a fallow year to rest the land, a tradition that has always made the preceding festival particularly special. “The festival before a fallow year is always a fun one to plan because you almost have to fit two years into one,” she said, adding, “We’re already in talks with some acts for it. It’s exciting.”

Eavis praised the festival as a unifying event, stating that it’s a place where attendees can find “common ground” and that it “restores your faith in humanity.”

American soul singer SZA will close out this year’s festival with her headline slot set to start at 9.30pm. The 34-year-old, whose real name is Solana Rowe, is known for songs such as “PSA,” “Snooze,” “All The Stars,” and “Shirt.” She is one of two female headliners this year, sharing the spotlight with Dua Lipa, who delivered Friday night’s headline performance. SZA’s headline slot at Glastonbury follows her Saturday night show at BST Hyde Park. After the Hyde Park show, she took to Instagram to express her gratitude, writing, “Thank you for vibing w me Hyde Park. See ya tomorrow Glastonbury!!!!”

On Saturday night, British rock band Coldplay took the Pyramid Stage for their fifth time as headliners, cementing their place in the musical history books of Glastonbury by becoming the first act to headline the festival five times.
