The Glasto Lineup Thus Far!
Congratulations to all of you out there who’ve successfully secured Glastonbury tickets for yourself… you’re sure to have a wonderful time! But which big name bands have signed themselves up to play at this year’s festival and which will you be keen to see?
The first Glastonbury Festival 2019 lineup poster has now been released, designed by Stanley Donwood, so you can easily see who’s going to be taking to the many, many stages and you can start planning your festival.
The Friday night headliner has been confirmed as Stormzy, with Kylie on hand to take the Sunday teatime legend hotspot. And this year’s final two Pyramid Stage headliners have now been announced as well, with The Killers taking the Saturday night and THe Cure headlining on the Sunday – the first time the band has been at Glasto since 1995.
So who else have we got lined up to wow the crowds? Good news if you’re a Janet Jackson fan as she’s going to be taking centre stage, as are George Ezra, Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus and Tame Impala.
And then there’s The Chemical Brothers, Vampire Weekend, Ms Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae, Chrstine and the Queens, Hozier, Two Door Cinema Club, Jorja Smith, Bastille, Billie Eilish, Snow Patrol, Sigrid, Cat Power, Wu-Tang Clan… the list goes on and on! Have a good look at the poster to see if your favourite band has been confirmed but don’t panic if not… there are still many more acts set to be announced.
A reminder has just been issued, however, that if you’ve paid your deposit for either a coach package or a general admission ticket, you’ll need to pay the balance of £198 and a £5 booking fee per ticket between April 1st and April 7th. While paying your balance, you’ll also be able to add car park tickets and cancellation protection if you decide you need it.
At the same time, you’ll also have to sign the festival’s Love the Farm, Leave no Trace pledge, which asks you to only use the toilets provided, use the recycling bins properly and not drop litter as you go, take all your belongings home with you again (including tent and camping equipment), bag up all your rubbish in the provided bin bags and use single-use packaging and a reusable water bottle whenever possible.
Last month (February), the festival organisers announced that single-use plastic drinks bottles wouldn’t be available to buy at Glastonbury. Festival partner Greenpeace estimates that around the world up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans every year and the best way to prevent plastic pollution is to reduce its usage.
In 2017, over one million plastic bottles were sold at Glastonbury and the festival now feels that stopping their sale is the only way forward.
