Your Glastonbury Timetable, Sorted
Doing the work so you don’t have to…
By Tamara Roper and Jack Smith
Heading to Glastonbury but haven’t even glanced at the line-up? We won’t judge. Instead, here’s a list of people that you might want to catch, depending on your mood. A veritable mix of classy ladies, pop heroes and some of the most exciting acts from abroad. Happy camping!
Friday: Ladies Night
Haim, Other Stage, 4.25pm: The sisters Haim will no doubt be giving it sass and first album favourites to start off Friday afternoon. Stick your flower hairband on and go and act ratchet for an hour.
Lily Allen, Pyramid Stage, 6.30pm: Lily is like the pop star that Glastonbury gave birth to. Some of her best performances and funniest interviews have taken place at Worthy Farm, so her spiritual homecoming should not be missed.
Lykke Li, John Peel Stage, 9.15pm: Feel like you need your mood taken down a notch because Lily and Haim have got you feeling too happy? Lykke Li will no doubt be clad in black whatever the weather, singing about heartbreak in the most delightful way.
M.I.A, West Holts Stage, 10.15pm: This performance could go either way, depending on how good a mood M.I.A. is in. Regardless, expect top fashion, political statements and certified bangers from the queen of Bad Girls.
Top Raving Choice: Numbers Boat Party, Wow! Stage, 1am-5am: Scottish party troopers Jackmaster, Optimo and Spencer playing dance for four hours to get you into the light hours of Saturday morning. Bring sunglasses and a bumbag.
Saturday: The Lads
John Wizards, West Holts Stage, 1.15pm: All the way from the South African Savana, you can catch the joyful summer sounds of the critically acclaimed John Wizards on the West Holts stage at 1.15pm. Hopefully the sun will have snuck out by then.
The Internet, West Holts Stage, 2.45pm: Odd Future members Syd the Kyd and Matt Martians bring their neo-soul project to soothe your own soul. Needn’t move from the stage after John Wizards too, which is handy.
Twin Atlantic , John Peel Stage, 9.15pm: Open up your heart and soul to Scottish rockers Sam, Barry, Ross and Craig – you’re guaranteed a good sing-a-long.
Top Raving Choice: A Guy Called Gerald, Shangri-La, 3am: Credited as one of the most influential British producers of his age, his tracks have brought the acid house of ’80s Manchester to the masses. Make sure to get down wit plenty of time, after hours Glastonbury is not for the faint hearted.
Sunday: WHY WOULD YOU MAKE SAM SMITH AND DOLLY PARTON OVERLAP?
George Ezra, John Peel Stage, 1.50pm: This guy’s going to be big this summer, so make sure you catch him before his solo shows start selling out and you can no longer say you saw him before anyone else did.
Sam Smith, Other Stage, 4pm: Have you heard his Whitney Houston cover?! If not, why not?! Head down early for this set, because it’ll be rammed. We can imagine that Sam Smith performing for a festival crowd will be a heap of fun too.
Dolly Parton, Pyramid Stage, 4.20pm: The country and western legend and American cultural icon will take to the Pyramid Stage for what promises to be a hit-laden set, kicking off Sunday evening in sparkly style.
Bonobo, West Holts Stage, 8.30pm: Start the wind down before work with Bonobo, who’ll make your still-moving feet sway whilst simultaneously soothing the aching head and scratchy eyeballs you’ve procured over the weekend.
James Blake, The Park Stage, 9pm: Will last year’s most hyped live up to all of the expectations placed on him? Most probably, yes. Finish off your weekend of live music with the lulling tones of James Blake and try and remember where you parked the car.
Top Raving Choice: Go hard or go home.
