Festival line-up update: Glastonbury, Heineken Open’er, 2000trees and more

By | Published on Monday 13 May 2013


So, Glastonbury’s taken on another load of artists – not least Simian Mobile Disco, Yousef, Stanton Warriors, Boys Noize and Robyn Hitchcock – which is nice of it. I mean, it’s practically at capacity already, what with Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons, and that.

Still this is what festivals are meant to do, isn’t it? Add acts. Take Poland’s Heineken Open’er, for instance, and its new signings Jonny Greenwood, Nas, Junip and Kaliber 44, who all go to join Kings Of Leon, QOTSA, Blur, and those Arctic Monkeys (again). Or, as a third illustration of the ‘festivals adding artists’ archetype, Jersey’s right royal dance rave, Jersey Live. Its line-up newbs, Example, John Cooper Clarke, Howard Marks and Shlomo, are company to older faves Fatboy Slim, Netsky, The Cribs, Pete Tong and Tom Odell. Grand.
