Britain's Glastonbury Festival sweltered in soaring temperatures on Saturday with a headline show from local boys and rock superstars Muse and a brief appearance by pop princess Kylie.

Muse formed an epic set at Glastonbury. The band headlined under a brilliant full moon, the fullest for 20 years, which was complemented by numerous fluorescent red flares lit off by the crowd.

Temperatures touched 30 degrees Celsius at the site in Somerset in southwest England, a welcome change from the rain and mud that has become synonymous with the world-famous greenfield arts festival.
