Wellies at the ready people! The Glastonbury 2013 line-up has been revealed and we can confirm it looks very good indeed. Twitter was awash with people tweeting who they were most excited about seeing, some already panicking that there is no way they’ll pack in seeing all the bands they love in just one weekend.
Here are the five things we are most excited about…
1. The Rolling Stones Headlining On Saturday Night
After years of begging, pleading and cajoling, Michael Eavis has confirmed that the Rolling Stones will finally be playing Glastonbury for the first time in their 50-year career. This news has pretty much dominated the coverage since the festival line-up was revealed with Mick Jagger himself tweeting, ‘Can’t wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt!’ We’ll definitely be camping out at the Pyramid stage nice and early to ensure we have a good spot. Whoop!
2. Cara Delevingne And The Love Triangle
Nope, you didn’t miss something. The model-of-the-moment is not set to perform BUT her BFF and wifey Rita Ora is. As the two are fairly inseparable (and remember Rita’s remarks that she’d taken Cara off the market?!), we think it’s pretty likely that Cara will tag along for the ride, beanie hat and all. But, this also means she could potentially run into Jake Bugg backstage, who she’s also been linked to and who is set to perform. Awkward…
3. Here Come The Girls
The last Glastonbury festival to take place in the otherwise sleepy Somerset village was in 2011 and was headlined by none other than Beyonce. And yes, it was totally ah-may-zing. This year, we’re uber pleased to see a strong line-up of female artists to be given a pretty high billing. We’ve already mentioned Rita Ora but we’ll also be checking out Laura Mvula, Haim, Azealia Banks, Jessie Ware, Gabrielle Aplin, Lucy Rose, The Staves…
4. It’s Not Too Late To Get A Ticket
Well, your chances might be slim. But if you register now, you’ll be in with a shot of nabbing a cancelled ticket which goes on sale on 21st April. You’re better off being a bit more organised next year though – it’s not too early to book the morning off work. You know, the one where tickets go on sale and its necessary to sit in front of a computer with your smartphone and tablet devices all the while hitting refresh as you compete for a coveted spot.
5. Onesie O’clock
One of the reasons we love Glastonbury is because you can legitimately drink at any hour, wear whatever you want (we’re already taking bets on how many onesies we’ll see), not wash your hair for at least four days and eating things out of packets and boxes is not only recommended but most likely you’re only option. Plus you can sing and dance from morning until night which burns off all those excess calories you might accidentally consume. It’s basically a win-win situation. NB. Wet wipes are essential. Hand sanitizer is recommended.
