The Glastonbury Effect

It’s no great surprise that performing in front of a potential crowd of nearly 200,000 people & blanket coverage over every platform the BBC has to offer has led to the artists performing at the recent Glastonbury Festival gaining massive charts boosts.

Last night (3 July) saw big leaps from Beyonce and her album ‘4’ (she headlined the festival on the Sunday evening) return to the top of the album chart, whilst her third album ‘I Am Sasha Fierce’ skipped-up a giant 89 places to Number 38. Other notable acts to also have the Glastonbury Effect include Mumford & Sons, Noah & The Whale, Plan B, Chase & Staus, actually anyone, who played stage, at anytime over the Glasto weekend.
