Jamie Webster issued a message ahead of his performance.

The Scouse musician, who is playing his third consecutive year at the festival, took to the Other Stage at 11:45am this morning (June 29) and a huge crowd were present to watch his performance on the second biggest stage, after The Pyramid Stage. He last performed at Glastonbury in 2022, when he took to the Left Field stage. He attracted such a crowd that fans were spilling out of the tent.

Jamie took to the stage to Fatboy Slim’s Praise You before kicking off his set with a performance of Voice of the Voiceless from his album 10 For The People.

Speaking to the Glastonbury crowd, Jamie asked: ‘’Is there anybody here from Liverpool?’ to which a loud cheer erupted. He continued: ‘’Just keep that secret ticket link quiet okay’'

''’There’s about five tunnels that we dig in December every year, that’s how we’re all in’’

Jamie has previously spoken about the amount of Scousers who attend Glastonbury. After playing to huge crowds at Avalon Stage in 2023 and Left Field Stage in 2022, said: "Scousers love Glasto and so many Scousers are at Glasto because it's the best party in the world.

"So many people ask 'how do so many Scousers get tickets?' and it's simple. They're so determined not to miss out.

"If something is advertised as the best party in the world, or a playground for adults, you know, Scousers are going to make it their business to get in there, and that's what they do. It's just the fact that they've got more will to be there than anyone else.

"And for me that's part of what makes it so special. [Glastonbury] is where everyone just seems to let go of whatever it is that has been consuming them in their day-to-day lives.''

The Liverpool singer sent a three word message to the crowd during his set that won’t be seen on TV, shouting ‘’f**k the Tories’’ a phrase that has become synonymous with Jamie due to his Tory-baiting lyrics. The Glastonbury crowd were in full voice as the chant got louder and louder.

Fans were also treated to a guest appearance as Jamie introduced a special guest on stage with him, who he described as ''a hero of mine.'' Musician Billy Bragg, who features on single 'Fickle Fran' took to the stage with Jamie. It was Billy Bragg who made it possible for Jamie to play his first Glastonbury performance back in 2022.
