That moment in most Glastonbury Festival ticket-holder’s calendar has arrived: publication of full stage times across all stages. It’s the moment you hope the guys over at clashfinder.com are paying attention and uploading those all-important slots into their system so us regular Joes can figure out those all important clashes.
There will be plenty of disappointments to be sure as we find that Stormzy’s guaranteed-to-be special Friday night Pyramid Stage headline slot clashes with Tame Impala on the Other Stage. Damon Albarn’s The Good, the Bad & the Queen’s Sunday Park Stage set clashes most heinously with Billie Eilish’s Other Stage appearance. But then there’s a fantastic back-to-back of Jade Bird followed by British Country stars The Shires over on the Avalon Stage on Saturday evening.
One big surprise is that Janet Jackson’s slot falls before both Liam Gallagher and The Killers on Saturday night’s Pyramid stage line-up rather than Jackson headlining the Other stage, a slot taken by The Chemical Brothers. Although this does make for a particularly stellar Saturday night line-up!
Some new names have also been added to the already confirmed line-up, with Canadian Mac DeMarco and Denver-based folksters The Lumineers taking up Friday slots on the Other stage while enigmatic rising star Maggie Rogers hits the same stage on Saturday afternoon following the release of her storming debut Heard It In A Past Life.
Japanese metallers BABYMETAL and Sheffield rockers Bring Me The Horizon will take to the Other stage on Sunday while already announced teen sensation Billie Eilish has been moved over from the John Peel to the Other later that day.
Following both a well-received slot at Glastonbury 2017 and a storming All Points East headline set at East London’s Victoria Park, Christine And The Queens will close out the Other Stage, playing opposite The Cure on the Pyramid. Also added to the mix, Nashvillie-based Country star Carrie Underwood follows Scots favourites The Proclaimers, opening up Saturday’s Pyramid Stage proceedings.
A number of other treats are in store as Jeff Goldblum brings his Mildred Snitzer Orchestra to the West Holts Stage and Tom Odell takes to the Pyramid stage after the stage is opened for the weekend by Australian covers act Björn Again.
A few ominous TBAs are still in the mix, with Thursday evening’s Williams Green slots notorious for showcasing rising acts otherwise found commanding massive stages. Acts of years past have included Wolf Alice, Circa Waves and Everything Everything. The coveted Saturday night John Peel Stage headline slot is also yet to be announced. So watch this space!
