The line-up for WoodsiesGlastonbury Festival’s “vibrant & verdant” new area in the northwest Corner – has been announced as the place for “visceral live music, convivial campfires and enchanting treetop escapes.”

In 2023, the summer solstice falls on the opening Wednesday of Glastonbury Festival and the sun will set at its highest azimuth in the North West right over this brand new area, which makes a new home in the spaces previously occupied by the John Peel Stage and The Woods.

The new area takes its name from the Worthy Farm fields it occupies (following in the fabled field-name footsteps of Silver Hayes, West Holts and The Park).

A stone’s throw from Silver Hayes and San Remo, just north of the river and next to the Pyramid field, the Woodsies area combines Woodsies Main Stage with bars, cafes, décor, campfire, installations, and The Woods’ aerial walkways in the trees, making this a new, verdant alternative to hang out throughout the day and after the main stages close.

The question is: Will we see the the famous “TBC” slot appear in the Woodsies’ schedule for Sunday afternoon as it has for The John Peel Stage in years past? Last year saw George Ezra draw massive crowds to the stage and Brandon Flowers-led Killers made an unannounced appearance back in 2017 … Check out the full line-up below:
