It’s that time of year again – the world’s largest and most influential music event, Glastonbury Festival is set to take place at Worthy Farm this weekend. The festival is a celebration of all things art, music, and entertainment, and is a cultural event like no other.
Whether you were lucky enough to get your hands on tickets, or if you’re like us, watching from the comfort of your own home (and weeping) – there is definitely something for everyone. We have put together a few recommendations from the huge array of artists!
If you know anything about Glastonbury, you’ll have heard of the iconic Pyramid Stage, which has hosted some of the world’s most renowned artists. This year, it hosts British Icon, Sir Elton John for a special headline set, as well as LA rock legends Guns N Roses – who are both, in our opinion, bucket list watches! I mean, who wouldn’t want to hear the iconic Rocketman and Sweet Child O Mine in the flesh?
Pop queen and chart-dominating singer Lizzo also joins the roster, and is definitely someone that is not to be missed! Expect a feel-good set full of singalongs that we all know and love.
One artist that has been one to watch this year is Freya Ridings, a singer-songwriter and multi instrumentist that has risen to prominence off the back of her chart-topping ballad Lost Without You. Her music comprises equal parts folk, pop, and soul, and is an expert in a craft, which has led to her going from a hometown talent to an international star.
If you’re a fan of soulful vocals and slow-burning anthems, you can catch her on the Avalon Stage on Friday from 21:35 – 22:35. And what’s more! She is playing at our venue this October – you can find tickets here.
If you’re after something completely different, and are a fan of all things dance music, you do not want to miss the much-loved Craig Charles‘ DJ set! He is part of the Glastonbury furniture at this point, with his Funk and Soul Club featuring on countless occasions. His authentic style and infectious energy are one of a kind, and we can guarantee the atmosphere will be electric from start to finish.
You can catch him on Saturday night at the Palace from 22:00-0:00, a perfect way to end (or begin) your night! and do not worry, If you missed it or want to simply want to see him again, we have got you covered! Catch him at Albert Hall on the 6th of October 2023. Grab your ticket here.
In fact, Glastonbury is also bursting with talented artists that we have previously hosted. Whether you want to see hyper-pop queens: Rina Sawayama and Caroline Polachek; the DJ master that is Fred Again.., or jazz connoisseurs Ezra Collective, there is a perfect mixture of everything! There is even the legendary tribute to Elvis and Nirvana, Elvana, who are back again for a mixture of both classic singalongs and comedic relief.
