Arctic Monkeys see three-fold spike on Spotify

TRIUMPHANT sets at last weekend's Glastonbury Festival have seen a huge spike in streaming for leading bands on Spotify.

Arctic Monkeys were the big winners with a 329 per cent increase in streams following from their headline performance on the Pyramid Stage last Friday.

Chic featuring Nile Rodgers’ disco heavy set on the West Holts stage on Friday saw streams of the bands biggest hits rocket by 260 per cent, with Spotify users turning to the service to listen to their greatest hits which include, I Want Your Love, Le Freak and Everybody Dance.

Public Enemy were next on the list with streaming up 148 per cent, followed by The Rolling Stones at 125 per cent.

Portishead, Dizzee Rascal and Hurts also benefited.

Spotify has since put together a Glastonbury playlist, which you can check out below.
