Glastonbury Festival release 2019 stages and set timesPosted on: 29 May 2019
Glastonbury Festival is officially less than one month away, and they've just released stage details and set times for 2019 to perk you up on this grey Wednesday afternoon. Find all the info on (almost) all the stages below.
The Pyramid Stage is, of course, Glastonbury's most famous and the one most of you will be looking out for. As we already knew, Stormzy, The Killers and The Cure are this year's headliners, topping the bill on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively, with a trademark range of acclaimed artists from around the world also set to perform to a main stage crowd that can number up to 100,000, including US icons Sheryl Crow (2.30pm Friday), Ms Lauryn Hill (6pm Friday) and Janet Jackson (5.45pm Saturday), acclaimed UK acts like George Ezra (8.15pm Friday) and Liam Gallagher (7.15pm Saturday) and the hotly-anticipated legends slot at 3.45pm on Sunday, occupied this year by the one and only Kylie Minogue.
The Other Stage will be hosting a massively varied programme at Glastonbury this year, with artists representing several different genres including indie, electronic, hip-hop, pop, punk and more. Highlights include Canadian singer-songwriter Mac Demarco (3.30pm Friday), The Chemical Brothers (10.15pm Saturday) and the return of UK hip-hop man-of-the-moment Loyle Carner (5.15pm Sunday).
We'll be posted up at the West Holts stage for most of the weekend this year, eagerly awaiting the appearance of almost everyone on the hugely impressive lineup. It's impossible to see everyone you want to during Glastonbury given that the full festival programme is so vast, but if you pitched up at West Holts in 2019 and caught Maribou State (7pm Friday), Jorja Smith (8.30pm Friday), slowthai (4.15pm Saturday), Wu-Tang Clan (10.15pm Saturday), Roy Ayers (6.30pm Sunday) and Kamasi Washington (8pm Sunday), you'd go home a very happy bunny indeed.
There's some incredible UK talent on show at the John Peel Stage throughout Glastonbury 2019, with artists past and present ready to show the world what they can do. Pale Waves and Interpol (9pm and 10.30pm respectively) will certainly be two of the standout acts on Friday, while Bristol outfit Swimming Girls (11.30am Saturday), South London up-and-comer Octavian (2pm Sunday) and, obviously, The Streets (9.30pm Sunday) are also on our radar.
Arcadia's world-famous spider stage will be replaced this year for the first time by Pangea, a 360-degree stage modelled out of an old crane. We don't quite know what to expect from this one, but what's for certain is that it will be hosting some of the most memorable electronic sets of the festival. The Black Madonna (10pm Friday), Bicep (11pm Friday), Four Tet (10pm Saturday), Fat Boy Eats Everything (made up of Fatboy Slim & Eats Everything/12 midnight Saturday) and Andy C (1am Sunday) are established as some of the world's top DJs, so expect them to put the new Arcadia through its paces in 2019.
We've covered the main stages here but there is much, much more to explore and a lot more lineups to have a look at, so head here for a full, complete rundown of this year's activities, with all of the above stages as well as the Acoustic Stage, Avalon, all of the Bloc9 stages, the Silver Hayes area, the BBC Music Introducing stage, the Kidzfield and more.
