Glastonbury announced its first lineup today and as well as they marquee headliners above it’s the usual everyone working in music like Skrillex, John Grant, Lana Del Rey, Chromeo, Jurassic 5, Blondie, James Blake, Kodaline, The Black Keys, Chance The Rapper, Warpaint, Parquet Courts, ESG and Wolf Alice.
Tickets are already allocated so if you’re going enjoy. I went last year for the first time and loved it. It’s the original festival, where every other festival idea emanates. The organisation required to accommodate over 200,000 people is a lot but the toilets are clean and there’s plenty of room for everyone. Go to NYC Downlow in Shangri-La at night-time.
