Glastonbury. You’re either going or you’re not. Either way, you’re probably using social media to let everybody know your position; whether it’s gloating or complaining.
Today a line up bill was announced, revealing 88 names joining headliners: Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran.
Google search: ‘how to sneak into Glastonbury’.
I swear each year somebody writes a guide to that?
Katy Perry, the returned prowess is making her debut, and you can guarantee a Broadway style production. ‘Mr Boombastic’ himself, hit-maker Shaggy is confirmed for Worthy farm, alongside the Haim sisters, the formidable Lorde and pop perfectionists, The xx.
Stormzy, who has become the poster boy for grime is in good company with Boy Better Know, Kano, Dizzee Rascal, and Wiley.
Notable additions include The National and Biffy Clyro. With Royal Blood, All We Are, Alt J and George Ezra on the bill, the field provides perfect opportunity to preview new material.
Without confirmation from festival organisers as to who will perform the Sunday afternoon ‘legends’ slot, the addition of Kris Kristofferson has only fuelled the rumours. Or will it be Bee Gee Barry Gibb, having made his cameo with Coldplay last year? Chic and The Jacksons are also on the bill…
Too. Many. Legends.
Oh here it is, ‘what it’s really like to scale the Glastonbury fence’…
Get Volume #17 here.
