Glastonbury 2009 Line-up

The full line-up for this years Glastonbury festival has been announced.

In a year which brings The Specials, Blur, Crosby Stills & Nash and Madness to the main stages with alternatives including Lily Allen, Tom Jones and Bruce Springsteen...only Nick Cave could draw me to the mudbath this year.

Highlights for me are:

Pyramid Stage

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (Sunday)
Neil Young (Friday)
Fleet Foxes (Friday)
Bruce Springsteen (Saturday)
Kasabian (Saturday)

Other Stage

Ting Tings, White Lies (Friday)
Glasvegas, Bon Iver, Bat For Lashes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Sunday)

John Peel Stage

White Lies, Jarvis Cocker (Saturday)
Doves, Little Boots (Friday)


Lisa Hannigan (Saturday)
Imelda May (Sunday)


British Sea Power (Friday)
Eliza Carthy, Badly Drawn Boy, The King Blues (Saturday)
Seth Lakeman, Will Young (?). Teddy Thompson, The Mummers (Sunday)

So if you don't like ageing rockers and/or reformed groups from ages ago it's a good year to go off the beaten track and see some great artists in more intimate performances.
