You know how Glastonbury is working with Earache Records on a punk and metal stage for this year’s festival?

Well, the full line-up has now been confirmed for the new stage, which is being built in a recycled London Underground tube carriage. And the line up includes HO99O9, Heck, Hacktivist, Petrol Girls and Puppy, alongside Sex Pistol Glen Matlock and former Crass frontman Steve Ignorant, plus Grindcore trio Wormrot and one-time KLF collaborators Extreme Noise Terror.

The new stage is located in the Shangri La zone of the festival, and some heavier sounding acts will be playing on the Truth Stage there too. Good old Napalm Death had already been announced for that stage, and Dead Kennedys have now been added as well.

Says Napalm Death’s Shane Embury: “I haven’t been to Glastonbury since 1989! A wild weekend I recall where I was a baby sitter for a Japanese punk band all on acid! All I can say is myself and the rest of the Napalm Death boys are very happy to finally play this prestigious event, lets hope it’s a fucking mad one!”

UPDATE 2 Jun 2017, 06.00: Additional acts added to the story so to include the full line-up.
