Here’s a list of the Irish acts playing Glastonbury this year


The daddy festival of them all – Glastonbury is back this weekend. Not only is it one of the biggest and most impactful legacy festivals which attracts the biggest names and a huge amount of people, 210,000 this year, as Louise Bruton points out in her excellent Legless In Dublin newsletter this week, it’s a festival that has long been showing other organisers how to do access right (with over 4000 disabled attendees catered and facilitated for).

Headliners this year include Arctic Monkeys, Elton John, Lizzo and Guns ‘n’ Roses but any seasoned Glasto visitor knows that the topline is usually the least interesting on the bill. Looking at the timetable, the likes of Black Country, New Road, Candi Staton, Kelis, Christine and the Queens, Caroline Polachek, UMO, Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul and Sudan Archives, Confidence Man (DJ Set), Earl Sweatshirt and Joy Anonymous are some recommendations.

See the full list of acts playing.
