Yahoo, The Full Glastonbury Line-up is revealed!!

Today is the day I have been waiting for for months.

The full Glastonbury line-up has finally been revealed.  In just 3 weeks I will be making my way to this amazing festival with my son for the second of his major post-exam treats.  Ryan now has just 4 papers to sit and just after he sits his last one we will be off to Download to celebrate.

I am not sure which festival we are most excited about but boy am I looking forward to Glastonbury.  Just a day after the BBC gave details of its coverage of this years festival Glastonbury has announced its full stage line-up complete with performance times.

There are some pretty Major Coups for artists.  Newbie James Bay wins a Friday afternoon Pyramid Stage slot, though perhaps with a recent number 1 album under his belt that shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

Pharrell Williams will play the Pyramid stage on Saturday immediately preceding the controversial Kanye West.  Sunday Evening on the Pyramid Stage looks interesting with The Who supported by Paul Weller and Alt-J

Enter Shikari one of my favourite bands are up against the Foo Fighters on Friday Night so a real tough choice to be made, especially as they are at opposite ends of the site.  The Foo Fighters are scheduled for a mammoth 2.5 hour set.  I will have another chance to catch Enter Shikari on Saturday in Left Field though.

The sheer scale of the number of acts and stages on offer at Glastonbury is mind-boggling.  The field of Avalon, Acoustic and John Peel stages have much to offer me and I will need to spend a little time going through the programme to highlight my “do not miss” list.  Other than that I intend to relax, chill out and enjoy making new discoveries.  I think if you try to spend the whole festival rushing between stages the festival will be too much and much of the joy of discovery will be lost.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
