U2 on the Pyramid Stage June 25, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic on West Holts June 26 and Ash on the John Peel Stage June 27 are just some of the designations as the Glastonbury Festival lays out its day-by-day for all the world to see.
Although the live action in Pilton, England, doesn’t really gear up until Friday, June 25, Glastonbury will allow parking as early as the preceding Tuesday evening, although drivers are required to remain in their vehicles until 8 a.m. Wednesday morning. The festival’s official run is June 23-27.
While it’s too early for organizers to nail down hourly performance schedules, Glastonbury has released its daily lineup, showing U2, The Flaming Lips, Groove Armada and Mos Def among the Friday night headliners. Saturday’s top-billed acts include Muse, Pet Shop Boys, Jamie T, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Christy Moore, while Sunday’s entertainment includes Stevie Wonder, Orbital, Ash and Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
Jackson Browne is playing two separate stages (and nights) this year at Glastonbury. On Saturday, June 26, Browne performs on the Pyramid Stage, followed by a headlining performance on the Acoustic Stage with David Lindley June 27.
New to the Glastonbury lineup is Snoop Dogg, who plays the Pyramid Stage a few bands before U2 June 25.
Other bands and artists playing Glastonbury include Hot Chip, The Black Keys, Nick Lowe, Richard Thompson, Dr. John, Devendra Banhart and a cast of hundreds, if not thousands. For more information, click here for the Glastonbury Web site.
