Glastonbury unveils an indie laden line-up
We already knew the headliners destined for the Pyramid Stage this year but now we’ve got a whole host of bands destined for Worthy Farm this June.
Michael and Emily Eavis already gave us our headliners for this year’s Glastonbury, with Foo Fighters finally set to perform after cancelling in 2015 due to Grohl breaking his leg. Also topping the bill is Ed Sheeran on the back of his new album, ÷ and Radiohead, who are rumoured to be planning a special set for the 20th anniversary of their debut album OK Computer.
In it’s 45th year, Worthy Farm will be, as always, welcoming a diverse range of artists to the festival. But for fans of indie, brace yourselves for probable clashes and heartbreaking decisions when it comes to deciding who to see.
Along with Radiohead and Foo Fighters, The XX will be returning to Glastonbury, along with The National, Biffy Clyro, Major Lazer, Alt-J, First Aid Kit, Warpaint, Metronomy and more. Reeling in the years, The Jacksons are booked to play what’ll surely be a set filled with good vibes and big sing alongs. Also bringing a throwback of nostalgia, Nile Rogers will be livening the festival up at some point across the weekend.
One of the most eagerly awaited returns in music, London Grammar, are also on the line-up and BRIT Award winners, Royal Blood too. Local lads, Circa Waves, who just played a homecoming gig at Mountford Hall on the back of their new album Different Creatures have also been pencilled in for a set when they come to Worthy Farm.
Outside of indie and legendary acts, Katy Perry will be making an appearance ahead of her next album that’s set for a release some time this year. Grime icon, Stormzy is making an appearance, as well as ‘Bonkers‘ rapper, Dizzie Rascal and Lorde will be performing as she continues to tease new music since her debut album, Pure Heroine was released in 2013.
There’s still many more acts to be announced at what Michael Eavis has called “the largest line-up” they’ve had across more than 100 stages. Once again Glastonbury sold out within minutes of going on sale, earlier in the year. Check out the full line-up below. The legendary festival takes place from June 21st to June 24th.
