[Watch] Check Out Highlights from Vampire Weekend, Alt-J, The xx, Tame Impala and Jessie Ware at Glastonbury 2013

Pilton, UK saw a flood of musical talent enter the Glastonbury festival grounds this past weekend, and it'd be a shame not to share some highlights with those who weren't able to attend.

Vampire Weekend performed songs both old and new. Before joining Mumford & Sons on stage for a cover of The Beatles' "With a Little Help From My Friends," they dished out great renditions of "Diane Young" and "A-Punk."

Tame Impala continued their exstensive festival circuit, burning through fan-favorite "Elephant" with as much passion as ever.

Alt-J were there too, causing an uproar of cheers with their intricate An Awesome Wave highlight "Breezeblocks."

The xx took hold of the crowd, performing their emotional and minimal single "Angels." They really are mesmerizing to watch. I witnessed this at Sasquatch!, and you get a good sense of it even by watching a YouTube clip.

Jessie Ware took things in a dancier direction, booming her vocals across the stage with a sensual rendition of "If You’re Never Gonna Move" (formerly known as "110%").

Check out all of these highlights after the jump, and check out more of BBC's coverage of the festival here.

Sunday night saw Mumford & Sons return to the stage for the first time since bassist Ted Dwane underwent emergency brain surgery. The band headlined the main stage during the final evening of Glastonbury 2013, and closed their performance with a cover of The Beatles' "With a Little Help From My Friends." It wasn't just Mumford and co., though, as they were joined on stage by members of Vampire Weekend, First Aid Kit and The Vaccines. Closing out the festival with a little help from their friends. Appropriate.

[Watch] Arctic Monkeys' Full Glastonbury 2013 Set

It's Saturday which can mean only one thing, well, going with the past two weeks trend... Another Arctic Monkeys post. Last night the Sheffield band performed their second ever headline show at the world famous Glastonbury Festival and boy did they deliver. Revisiting the Pyramid stage, following on from their 2007 set, they played a hit laden set featuring cuts from their back catalogue along with opening the set with their new single "Do I Wanna Know?", rocking the 180,000 strong festival to its core. They were even joined by Miles Kane for set closer "505" and you can re-live the entire show below. The band have also recently enrolled the help of Dead Sons' lead singer Tom Rowley, or as Alex refers to him; "the white ranger" on keys for the current tour.

The band's new album, AM, will be out on September 9th via Domino and to support that they've just announced a UK arena tour set for October, dates of which can be found over here.
