Jeremy Corbyn completely overshadowed acts such as Ed Sheeran and Thom Yorke’s Radiohead as the most talked about act at Glastonbury.
The Labour leader took to the Pyramid stage on Saturday afternoon with Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis CBE to rapturous reception.
Chants of ‘Oh, Jeremy Corbyn’ rang around the prestigious fields, echoing previous concerts the Labour leader has spoken at.
And despite some of the World’s biggest bands performing at the festival, it seems Corbyn has taken the spoils for the most talked about act.
According to social media data compiled by Brandwatch there was a 56 per cent spike in the number of mentions of Corbyn during and following his rousing speech.
That compares to a spike of just 12 per cent for headliner Ed Sheeran and just 16 per cent for Radiohead.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
