Glastonbury Festival unveil first wave of the 2019 lineup and it's a cracker!Posted on: 18 Mar 2019
Anyone that's been before will tell you that it doesn't really matter that much about the lineup at Glastonbury. Regardless of who's playing, or who's headlining, you're still certain to have a blast. That said, Michael Eavis and co have gone ahead and put together a typically star-studded and diverse programme for this year's weekend at Worthy Farm - check out all the info below.
Rock, indie, grime, hip-hop, pop, ambient, spoken word, afrobeat, dance. These are just some of the seemingly infinite number of musical genres present on this year's Glasto lineup, and the organisers have enlisted some of each genre's biggest and best names to perform across the array of stages on Worthy Farm.
Headlining this year, to the joy of some and the dismay of others in typical Glastonbury fashion, will be anthemic American rockers The Killers, English musical legends The Cure and standout member of the re-emerging grime movement, Stormzy. Aussie icon Kylie Minogue is occupying the 2019 legends slot - certain to be one of the weekend's standout performances.
There is, of course, a huge contingent of renowned British artists on the 2019 lineup, as Liam Gallagher returns for his second consecutive festival, George Ezra earns himself a spot following a huge couple of years, eclectic electronic outfit The Chemical Brothers bring their revered live show to Glastonbury, up-and-comers Loyle Carner and slowthai appear and Bristol-based rockers IDLES get the nod.
There's much more still to be announced for Glastonbury 2019 and, as we know, the lineup isn't everything at one of the world's biggest and best music festivals. Keep an eye on 365Bristol for future updates, and respond to our Facebook event listing for regular news as it happens!
