They asked their followers: “Has anyone got a private jet in La? (sic)”
The Mercury Prize winners ended up having to fly from Los Angeles to Seattle to get a direct flight to London Heathrow.
After a gruelling travel experience, Ellie Rowsell and co confirmed they had arrived back in London on their Instagram Story, just hours ahead of their performance on the Pyramid Stage.
They will now make the 139-mile journey from London to Glastonbury in Somerset, South West England.
Wolf Alice are due on stage at 4.45pm.
Billie Eilish is the headliner tonight.
