Glastonbury Update

There was a time when the line-up for Glastonbury wasn’t announced until 2 weeks before the big weekend. Thanks though to head farmer Michael Eavis and his big brilliant mouth that’s changed. It’s become more of a ‘drip feeding’ announcement of who’s playing and who isn’t.

Talking to efestivals.com the hipster ruled out any chances of Pulp and The Libertines making an appearance at Worthy Farm, but did say there’s a chance Paul Simon could play.

‘Pulp are doing Reading [the Reading And Leeds Festivals], and they're doing their own shows, so there's no point in us doing them as well,’ he told the website, adding; ‘the same goes for The Libertines’. However when asked if Paul Simon was booked for the ‘legends slot’ on Sunday afternoon he teasingly replied; ‘I can't confirm that at the moment.’
