Muse have kicked off the first official night of Glastonbury 2016 in style as they headlined the Pyramid Stage on Friday (24 June).

The rockers delighted the crowd with an electrifying set at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.

Frontman Matt Bellamy and his fellow bandmates worked their way through a 21 song setlist, including some of their biggest hits like 'Supermassive Black Hole', 'Time Is Running Out' and 'Plug In Baby'.

It isn't the first time they have headlined the festival, having played the iconic Pyramid in 2004, when they topped the bill with Paul McCartney and Oasis.

Revellers still have plenty left to enjoy as this year's festival continues over the next two days.
