Getting to Glastonbury
The recent sunshine has brought the festival season into focus, and 2013 sees the welcome return of the biggest UK music show piece, as once again Worthy Farm will be playing host to the Glastonbury Festival from the 26th to the 30th June.
Music pilgrims have been itching to return to the muddy fields of Somerset for over a year, as the festival was put on hold in 2012 to make way for the London Olympics (apparently there weren’t enough portaloos to go around…) but this year it’s back with a vengeance.
A multitude of acts are on the bill for 2013 (with even more to be announced) showcasing some of the best talent the UK has to offer.
The Stones FInally Roll In
Headlining at the famous Pyramid Stage will be Mumford and Sons, Arctic Monkeys and legends of rock and roll the Rolling Stones who eventually relented and have made organiser Michael Eavis’s dreams come true.
The stage will also be graced by an eclectic mixture of old and new acts â€“ veterans such as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Primal Scream, Elvis Costello and Billy Bragg will brush shoulders with young whippersnappers such as Dizzee Rascal, Vampire Weekend, Ben Howard and Jake Bugg.
On the ‘Other Stage’ this year, festival-goers will be treated to headlining performances from The xx, Portishead and Chase & Status, as well as the likes of Foals, Smashing Pumpkins, Of Monsters and Men, Two Door Cinema Club and Alt-J among many more. The John Peel stage will once again be showcasing some of the most original modern acts, including Crystal Castles, Hurts, Everything Everything, Bastille, Phoenix and Jessie Ware.
There are music tents to cater for every kind of music fan, offering everything from acoustic to electronic, folk to jazz, comedy and theatre and a plethora of things to see and do.
