There were lots of surprises across this weekend’s Glastonbury, but no one seemed to pack in the special guests quite like James Blake.
Taking to the West Holts stage on Saturday night, Blake not only his used his set to debut an array of cuts from his newest ‘The Colour In Anything’ record, but he also invited a few friends out on stage to boot.
While Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon stepped out on stage to accompany Blake on his new album cut ‘I Need A Forest Fire’, Vince Staples added a new verse to ‘Timeless’ and 1800-Dinosaur collaborator Trim also appeared during his eighty-five minute set.
You can watch James Blake’s full set from the weekend over on the BBC iPlayer now, or if you wanna fast-forward to his guest’s appearance you can find Vince Staples at the 25.10 mark (and a video of his appearance below), Trim at 35.40 and Bon Iver at the 1.06.40 point.
