That Glasto line-up in full...
The full line-up for this year’s Glastonbury festival has been officially announced.
Headlining the Pyramid Stage will be Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and The Who, with Bjork, Iggy & The Stooges and The Chemical Brothers doing their darndest to rock the pants off the Other Stage. Hot Chip, The Twang and The Gossip head up the John Peel Stage.
Other picks in a rum old line-up include a new rave double whammy in CSS and Klaxons on the Other Stage on Saturday, Annuals on the John Peel Stage on Friday, Beirut on the Jazz World Stage on Sunday, and trying to see if Amy Winehouse is visibly drunker on the Jazz World Stage on Friday than she is on the Main Stage earlier in the afternoon.
Friday’s Other Stage boasts some fine highlights, with The Cribs, Modest Mouse and Bright Eyes all putting in appearances, and Rufus Wainwright, Arcade Fire and Bjork providing blessed relief from the lad-rock triptych of The Fratellis, Kasabian and Arctic Monkeys over on the Pyramid Stage.
But then, I suppose some people like that sort of thing.
