Whether you were jostling to get as close to the Pyramid Stage as possible, or wearing your pyjamas and watching from the comfort of your sofa; you’d be hard pushed to have not seen at least a snippet of the coverage from the mighty Glastonbury festival last week.
Glastonbury’s headliners this year were a fashionable bunch, and we couldn’t help but take a look at what eyewear they’re all wearing both on and off stage!
Whether your style is glamorous like Adele, smart and snappy like Madness’ front man Suggs, or contemporary and edgy like Ellie Goulding or Bastille’s Dan Smith, we’ve got eyewear that will suit your style and help you get your music icon’s look (for a lower price!) here at Tesco Opticians.

With Time magazine naming Adele as one of the most influential people in the world in 2016 and her album 21 achieving the status of fourth best-selling album in the UK of all time, Adele doesn’t need any more of an introduction from us!
Adele hit back at critics who said she was ‘too boring’ to headline Glastonbury by saying, "I'm actually more excited than I was now because of all those rock and punk fans have been having a moan that I'm doing it and I'm like: 'You're going to get dragged along by your wife, so just deal with it."
Get the look: Get Adele’s glamorous, retro style in these huge, oversized Brink Sun 6 prescription sunglasses. The pointed outer corners give these frames a hint of feminine cat-eye.

Suggs rose to fame in the late 70s and early 80s as the front man of Ska band Madness, best known for hits like ‘Baggy Tousers’, ‘House of Fun’ and ‘Our House’. Suggs, real name Graham McPherson, also began a solo career in 1995.
As well as appearing at Glastonbury, Madness are performing at the UK’s biggest arenas this year for their ‘Can’t Touch Us Now’ tour marking the band’s 40th year together!

Trio ‘Two Door Cinema Club’ are an indie rock band hailing from Ireland. The band’s first album Tourist History was released in 2010, followed by Beacon in 2012 which reached number two in the UK Album Charts.
The band had been a bit quiet for the last couple of years, playing their first shows in two years in April of this year. As well as performing at Glastonbury they have a number of other festival dates in their diaries this summer and have recently confirmed that their third studio album is finished, so it looks like we’ll be seeing more of them this year!

Goulding first rocked up onto the music scene in 2009 when she released her debut album ‘An Introduction to Ellie Goulding’. Seven years later and with numerous awards now under her belt, she released her third studio album at the end of 2015.
Goulding recently spoke out about sexism in the music industry and criticised music festivals for not booking more female artists.
