Glastonbury Festival 2017 lineup announced

So, after months of speculation, Glastonbury has today dropped their first official poster into our inbox.

Putting aside the headliners (everone talks about the headliners), we’re particularly looking forward to sets from The Avalanches, Loyle Carner, and Biffy Clyro.

The Avalanches are over in the UK for a short three-date tour (plus Glastonbury) – so this is a 2017 UK festival exclusive as far as we can see.

They may only have two albums under their belts over a career spanning two decades, but with albums that good one every ten years is plenty.

Loyle Carner is, on the other hand, this year’s festival must-have name. He’s on pretty much every big festival that counts, and deservedly so.

His debut studio album hit the ground not just running, but at a full-blown sprint, and his tour diary for the year can’t have much white space left. He’s done the UK once already and has another slew of dates for the autumn as well as a schedule that takes him to the USA and Australia.

Carner’s intelligent and well-interpreted contemporary take on hip-hop is earning him both fans and critical acclaim, and if he isn’t the sound of the summer we’ll eat our much-loved festival sunhats.

And then there’s Biffy Clyro.

What can we say except to explain that a Biffy Clyro show never fails to be a defining moment at a festival.

The passion and energy that goes into every performance the band put on mean they are one act you have to put a big red circle around in your programme and make 100% sure you arrive in time to catch the whole spectacle.

Whilst some people will always grumble at festival line-ups, truth be told it’s virtually impossible for Glastonbury to have a bad year. That’s simply because it is soΒ  big, with so many stages and so many performers, that at any given moment you will always find something amazing around the corner…even if it’s unexpected and nothing you’ve ever heard of before.

So make a point of poking your head into every tent as you make your way around the site – and leave no corner of this amazing festival unexplored.

(If you’re lucky enough to have a ticket of course…if not, better luck next year…)

It is easy to criticise the festival for prices or policies, however it is a wonderful spectacle and it’s no mean feat to have reached this milestone. I don’t think it’s too much of an accolade to say that The Glastonbury Festival is a national treasure. I went for 5 years as a punter and for the last 10 years working, I have met life long friends and seen sights I will remember all my life. Long may it continue.

I was there 50 years ago (aged 10), on a blanket in front of the stage, with my mum, dad, sister and brother. Looking forward to the book coming out!

Looking fantastic as ever Mr E πŸ™‚

I was there at 16 50 years ago. Wasn’t able to afford tickets in recent years. Saved up and tried this year and failed to get any.

Laughing at the price of Glastonbury tickets..?

Are the signed copies still available?

How come the signed edition has 16 pages less than the unsigned edition???

What about Led Zeppelin?

Glastonbury Festival (official) any chance any more sign copy will be released says they are sold out on Waterstones page?

How much are they
