Glastonbury 2024: Sugababes Sizzle At West Holts Stage

With one of the weekend's biggest crowds...

Sugababes played an outstanding set at Glastonbury’s West Holts Stage a few moment ago.

The reformed trio – the magnetic Mutya, Keisha, and Siobhan – have played the Worthy Farm festival before, but there seemed to added hype to this performance. A must-see for many on-site, the West Holts Stage was packed to capacity for prior artist Noname, with the Chicago artist delivering some fantastic moments.

In truth, the huge crowd were waited with baited breath for Sugababes, and the arrival of the iconic UK pop trio sparked joyous scenes. The three vocalists were visibly bowled over by the welcome, with Siobhan pronouncing herself “in shock” during the set.

Opening with ‘Freak Like Me’ the group moved into ‘Red Dress’, while ‘Ugly’ sparked delirious scenes at West Holts. ‘Overload’ was a nostalgic thrill, while a UK Garage medley dug deep into the trio’s mutual foundations.

Indeed, there was a celebratory club aspect to their take on ‘Flowers’, overhauling the Sweet Female Attitude classic to the overwhelming delight of the capacity crowd.

With the sun raining down on Worthy Farm the trio waved farewell, only for the band to jam out onstage. Returning to the strains of ‘Push The Button’, Sugababes supplied one of the weekend’s key moments, in front of the one of the biggest crowds we’ve seen this year.

‘Round Round’ followed, before closer ‘About You Now’ followed with an apt warning to “have fun but stay hydrated”.

As ever, the BBC will be providing televised coverage, and we spoke to their team for an inside-look at the red button process.

Steve Lamacq told us: “That first time you go to Glastonbury, you’re coming in and you drive over the brow of the hill then all of a sudden you see this mass of humanity. The tents, the faraway fields of tents…being able to enjoy that for the first time and getting that across is important.”
