“It’s not like any other festival I’ve performed at.

“It has a positive vibe all around and the crowd were really good.

“There’s just so much to do there and everybody is so relaxed.”

Paul, a father of two, said his highlights included seeing Cheryl Crow, Fat Boy Slim and Liam Gallagher on the Pyramid Stage.

He added: “It’s a sensory overload from the moment you get there. Imagine somebody built a city and filled it with bars, restaurants and other entertainment – and 200,000 people live there and they are all on a big night out, all of the time!”

Paul also thanked his fans for their support.
