They are all playing at this years Glastonbury! The wait is finely over. The first official line-up was released this morning via twitter with 88 acts confirmed and It has people talking. We can all agree that the line-up seems to be the strongest it has been for years with a variation of artist from genres that caters to Glastonbury's diverse audience. So far we have Ed Sheeran, Radiohead, The XX and Foo fighters as headliners and a Glastonbury debut from Katy Perry.
June 21-25th will mark 46th year of Glastonbury festival, which is still regarded as a major event in British culture. The line up has a strong list of Brits from all genes waving the flag. With Stormzy, The XX, George Ezra and Sampha along with some exciting upcoming artist like Rag n Bone man, Nadia Rose and our office favourite Loyle Carner.
And the artist from across the pond is even more exciting with Solange, Lemon Twigs, Aanderson .Paak and the Free Nationals and Run the Jewels being a few. And of Course Katy Perry, who is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
The event is due one of its regular fallow years in 2018, however there have been whispers that this might be the end of Glastonbury Worthy Farm. Both Emily and Micheal Eavis have hinted that a new event called Variety Bazaar will take place on a different site.
We could waffle on about the line up but we know there's loads more to come and it will only get better. For those who have already put their deposit down don’t forget that you can pay the full amount of £188from April 1st -7th. For those who haven’t got a ticket yet, there is still hope! There will be a release of tickets in April(TBC) so keep your eyes pealed.
Lets hope for sunshine and more exciting artist announcements!
