Formed in 1996 and led by brothers James and Ian Skelly, Wirral psych-folk quintet The Coral are best known for their hits Pass It On, Dreaming Of You and In The Morning. They headed to Glastonbury after putting out their sixth studio album in 2010 (the John Leckie-produced Butterfly House). An acoustic re-recording of the album following five months later, a reminder to fans and critics alike of the band's enduring songwriting prowess.

    Where are the highlights of this superlative set?? This was without a doubt one of the most impressive bands on display at Glastonbury this year. They've matured into their sound so well, and in my opinion they performed the perfect set absolutely flawlessly. Criminal not to have at least one tune on here. Come on BBC, what do we pay you for?
