Their set was hitting us like a bolt of lightning.
But then an ACTUAL lightning bolt hit the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury and forced Rudimental to end their set early. This has now lead to every outdoor stage at Glastonbury being temporarily shut down till the rain and electrical storm pass.
Rudimental were reaching the finale of a hit packed set on the main stage that included a guest appearance from singer Ed Sheeran (who’ll be playing the same stage this Sunday).
We think it’s possible the Weather Wizards (shhh, they’re totally a thing) decided this combination was just too incredible and that’s why they sent down the rain to put a stop to proceedings.
Live streams of the major outdoor stages have also all been shut down, with BBC Glasto sending out this tweet to viewers at home:
NEWS: Our live streaming of outside stages is on hold due to the electric storm on site. Performances have been halted. More soon— bbcglasto (@bbcglasto) June 27, 2014
The festival has been absolutely sodden since last night with torrential down pours turning the festival ground into a series of miniature muddy lakes. At the moment the rain is showing no signs of letting up with showers predicted across the week for the UK.
The weekend will see headline performances from Arcade Fire, Kasabian and Metallica. Metallica have proven to be a controversial choice amongst celebs and punters alike since their announcement as the final act earlier this year. Much like Jay Z in 2008 it’s been argued that the band won’t fit with the peace and love vibes of the festival.

Here’s hoping they manage to pull off a show like Hova and prove everyone wrong.
