Suffice it to say, everyone had an epic time at the U.K.'s legendary Glastonbury festival over the weekend, including Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters who took over the Pyramid stage for a surprise set on Friday night.

Finally revealed as the scheduled 6PM-billed alias The Churnups, the Foo Fighters hit the stage for a 9-song set before Royal Blood and the night's headliners, Arctic Monkeys. They had to quickly rock through a bunch of fan faves because, as frontman Dave Grohl said during their performance, "They gave us one hour so we’ve got to f***ing pack it in.”
During the short set, Grohl dedicated their hit "Everlong" to late drummer Taylor Hawkins, and Dave's daughter, Violet Grohl, joined the group on stage to perform "Show Me How." Check out a clip and the full setlist below.

Of course, with so many incredible artists on the bill for this year's three-day music marathon, no one could ever expect Dave Grohl would sit still for very long. The following day, Dave hopped behind the drums with the Pretenders -- who also welcomed former bandmate and guitarist for The Smiths, Johnny Marr on stage for their set -- to perform their 1979 classic, "Tattooed Love Boys." “Apparently, there’s a drunk hanging around backstage and we asked security to get rid of him, but he’s a big guy and I don’t want any trouble. He insists on playing, so come out Dave,” singer Chrissy Hynde joked as she brought Grohl out.
Oh, but Dave wasn't done. Later on Saturday night, his appetite for collaboration was satiated by singer Axl Rose, who welcomed him to the stage to add to headliners Guns N' Roses' guitar ensemble on their 1987 classic "Paradise City" to close out the night.
"There's never such a thing as too many guitars," Axl told the crowd as Dave plugged in. "There's no such f***ing thing!"
