Maximo Park go Green

Indie popsters Maximo Park will be opening the brand new William Green area at Glastonbury this year, with what hacks are already calling an 'intimate gig'.

The north-easterners will kick of proceedings at 4pm on the Thursday of this year's festival, with only 1,500 fans being able to see them perform. However, all you fans who want to see the band still can, as they'll be playing the Other Stage on the Saturday.

'Glastonbury's still a festival that takes chances, as proven by Jay-Z's triumphant appearance last year, so it's an honour for us to be the first band on in such intimate surroundings,' said frontman Paul Smith. 'It's also an excuse to hang out and watch loads of brilliant music 'till we play the Other Stage on Saturday!'
