Acts as diverse as Kylie Minogue, Van Morrison and Goldie Lookin’ Chain are set to perform at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, according to the line-up revealed today.
Festival organisers published a list of musicians confirmed for the June extravaganza on the official website.
The main Pyramid Stage includes the former Australian soap star, Belfast legend Morrison and Newport rappers Goldie Lookin’ Chain as well as New Order, White Stripes, Coldplay, The Killers, Doves, Elvis Costello, The Undertones and Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson.
The Zutons, The Coral, Ash, Kaiser Chiefs, Jools Holland and The Thrills are also on the Pyramid Stage at the festival in Pilton, Somerset.
Razorlight, Ian Brown, Kasabian and Echo and the Bunnymen will all play on the Other Stage and on the newly-named John Peel Stage are James, Welsh soloist Jem and The Tears.
Though there is no sign of a repeat of last year’s Sunday performance by the English National Opera, violinist Nigel Kennedy is lined up for the JazzWorld Stage as well as jazzman Roy Ayers.
The Acoustic Stage will see Steve Earle, the Beautiful South, Tori Amos and Chas ’n’ Dave while folk group Oyster Band, The Proclaimers and Eddi Reader will play on the Avalon Stage.
The website says there will be changes between now and the festival and many more acts will be added once confirmed.
The 112,000 festival tickets were snapped up in less than three hours last Sunday morning by eager fans.
Ticket sales were restricted to two per person and those turning up at the event, from June 24 to 26, will have to show photographic identification matching the names printed on their tickets.
