Glastonbury Pyramid Stage falls silent for seven minutes during Marina Abramovic performance

Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage audience fell silent for seven minutes on Friday, 28 June, during Marina Abramovic's performance.

The Serbian conceptual artist's performance in an interlude between musicians was intended to be a "public intervention" reflecting on conflict and peace.

Abramovic called on the crowd to “be present” in the moment.

“When [Sir] Michael [Eavis] and Emily invited me to come here to the Pyramid Stage at the most important music festival in the entire world I was terrified and I was honoured,” the 77-year-old told the crowd.
