Kanye West just played the headline set of a lifetime at Glastonbury 2015.

Subverting convention and keeping things typically unpredictable, the rap icon stunned a huge crowd at Worthy Farm, bringing one of the most inventive headline sets the festival has ever seen - including a crane, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and a cover of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

Opening with classic hit 'Stronger', West brought a set that completely rose above any doubt that plagued his place on the bill.

Hits from across his discography filled his 90 minute slot, from earlier hits like 'Jesus Walks' through to the politically charged 'Black Skinhead'.

The rumoured guest-spots were undoubtedly sparse, however West's choice to bring out Justin Vernon to perform My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy cut 'Lost In The World' was inspired, shining a light on his influence across the music world but keeping the focus completely on himself as a performer.

The later parts of the set saw West rise above the audience on a cherry picker, performing the suitably euphoric 'Touch The Sky', 'All of the Lights' and 'Good Life', transcending above his previously minimalist stage setup.

Returning onto the stage after a brief break, Yeezy decided to treat fans to a brief cover of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody', telling the audience "You are now watching the greatest rock star on the planet", before storming into a hit filled trio of 'Can't Tell Me Nothing', 'Gold Digger' and 'All Falls Down'.

Needless to say, West's set was nothing short of phenomenal, and firmly established his place as one of the most intriguing artists the world has to offer.
