Glastonbury 2013 reviews: From Bassekou Kouyate to Mumford and Sons, Sunday has its fair share of top festival moments

Glastonbury organisers Michael Eavis and his daughter Emily took a chance on turning Mumford and Sons into a headline act; with just two albums released to date, it’s early in the band’s career. But the four-piece folk-rock band, with Brit and Grammy awards to their name, more than rise to the prestigious post. It’s an even more triumphant performance, following the brain surgery and happy recovery of their double bassist Ted Dwane.

Glastonbury 2013 - review: A laid-back Sunday to follow the Rolling Stones' show - from Rufus Wainright to John Lydon

So how can you possibly top that set from The Stones? A dream Saturday night headline set from the biggest rock band in the business was always going to a tough act to follow. Respect then to Bath-based The Heavy whose midday set on The Other Stage was a perfect start to the final day of this year's Glastonbury festival.

Film review: Beware of Mr Baker and Fast and Furious 6 - Furious Ginger packs a punch, but Vin Diesel is out of gas

A documentary about a rock drummer might seem more suited to BBC4 than to your local cinema, but most rock-docs don't open with their subject – in this case, Ginger Baker – cracking the director across the nose with his walking stick. Not a man who has ever needed an excuse to assault someone, Baker is incensed to learn that said director, Jay Bulger, is planning to interview some of his old associates, but in the event he had nothing to worry about.

Johnny Rotten branded ‘a sexist pig’ after Australian TV bust-up

John Lydon is no stranger to shocking television appearances, but the former Sex Pistol provoked fury today by ordering a female host to “shut up when a man is talking”.

Question Time returns: Steve Coogan, public schoolboys and plebgate

The new series of Question Time kicked off with Steve Coogan and Kirsty Allsopp arguing over public schoolboys, and a whole lot of plebgate.

Tom Hodgkinson: 'As a family, we go to festivals. And work'

The Sex Pistols, brilliantly, attacked the holy trinity of the modern economy: work, shopping and holidays, that is, paid employment, consumption and paid-for leisure. In "17", Johnny Rotten sang: "I don't work, I just speed, that's all I need," adding, with pride, "I'm a lazy sod." "Anarchy in the UK" complains that our Queen's "future dream is a shopping scheme", and in "Holidays in the Sun" he sneered at those who take a cheap holiday in other people's misery.

John Lydon keeps airwaves clean during Question Time performance

Album: Public Image Ltd, This is PiL (PiL Official)

The challenge for This is PiL – aka the album that butter built – is, first and foremost, to avoid disgracing the back catalogue.

It's hard not to feel slightly disappointed by PiL's first new studio album in two decades.

John Lydon says he wanted to be a painter
