The festivals tour began shortly after the arena tour ended with Muse headlining for the third time at the Glastonbury Festival and ended with Muse's performance at Krakow Live.
The overall design of the stage is minimalistic and stripped back, compared to previous festival stage designs. Behind the band are 11 cuboid monoliths with LED screens at the front and see-through panels at the sides which allow the sides to be lit up. They can move forward or back. According to Matt, it is all controlled by hands and no machines are used in the process of controlling the monoliths. The piano was only used for The Globalist and was always (apart from the last gig) the Upright Piano, and like the rest of the tour no Co2 cannons where used during or at the end of the show.
