It's the most wonderful time of the year! And no, its not Christmas... or your birthday, it's Glastonbury time! Don't pack your wellies, don't pack your raincoat and don't pack your over-sized brolly which smashes everyone in the head as you party at the Pyramid Stage because THE SUN IS HERE! (... finally) So pack your sunglasses, pack your sun cream, and let the good times roll at Glastonbury 2017.

Loyle Carner
Saturday, John Peel Stage, 16:50


Loyle Carner released his debut album 'Yesterday's Gone' earlier this year which spent a total of 3 weeks in the charts. The hip-hop artist is one of the most exciting around and is certainly a must see on the John Peel Stage.


Radiohead
Friday, Pyramid Stage, 21:30


They were the first headliner announced at Glastonbury 2017 with a picture of their logo painted on the Pyramid Stage fields back in October last year. After playing iconic headline sets in 1997 and 2003, Radiohead's headline slot is one of the most eagerly anticipated in years. 


Run The Jewels

The Australian trip-hop outfit released their first album in 16 years in 2016 to wide-spread critical acclaim and after a string of DJ shows they've got the band back together and bring a full live show to Glasto. It might be another 16 years until we see them again so don't miss out!


Thundercat
Saturday, West Holts, 14:30


The experimental bass player always wows with his crazy technique and at times unbelievable ability. Backed by a strong drummer and keys player his set will be a highlight for any jazz, funk or electronic music fan. 


Anderson. Paak and the Free Nationals
Friday, West Holts, 20:45


Arguably the coolest artist at Glastonbury this year, Anderson. Paak will be bringing funk, soul, hip-hop and RnB to West Holts this year. He sings, he raps, he plays drums... it's set to be a special one. 

Nick Mulvey
Sunday, Park Stage, 18:00


Nick Mulvey is not your ordinary singer-songwriter. Reigning from Cambridge but moving to Havana, Cuba to study music and songwriting, Nick Mulvey will certainly bring some of that Caribbean sunshine to the Park Stage this year. 

Pheonix
Saturday, John Peel Stage, 22:30


Headlining the John Peel Stage, the French synth-pop band will certainly be a highlight of Glastonbury 2017. Their 5th studio album 'Bankrupt!' was a big hit in the UK and US, and their Glasto set will certainly go down the same. Expect lots of new music off their forthcoming album. 

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Sunday, John Peel Stage, 14:30

 

Having one of the coolest names on the line-up has nothing to do with them being a must see at Glastonbury this year. The psychedelic rockers from Melbourne will blow you away on the John Peel Stage. 

Blossoms

Reigning from Stockport, the indie rockers have had a brilliant year since the release of their debut self-titled album which spent two weeks at the top of the charts. They've sold out tours across the UK, blew the Americans away at Coachella and recently supported The Stone Roses at Wembley Stadium. Don't miss Blossoms on the Pyramid Stage!

Fresh from their sold out iconic gig in their hometown to over 50,000 Mancunians, Courteeners will make the earth beneath The Other Stage move. One of our favourite bands will be bringing a slice of Manchester to Glastonbury...
