The Who At Glastonbury 2015 Is Going To Be A Triumph - And Here's Why

So now we know. This morning (May 6) it was announced, after months of speculation, that The Who are to headline Sunday evening at Glastonbury 2015, with Paul Weller taking up the slot before them. For joyous fans of the mod legends, the only question now is: "can I fit a tent and 42 cans of cider safely onto the back of a Vespa?" For other ticket-holders though, a more troubling question looms. Coming so soon after the group's last bill-topping appearance in 2007, are The Who a safe bet rather than an exciting one? We get it.

Why Simon Cowell’s New 'X Factor For DJs' TV Show Belittles The Art Of Mixing

It was recently announced that Simon Cowell's reality talent show 'Ultimate DJ' is going into production and will be live-streamed on Yahoo Live. Domino-signed deep house DJ George FitzGerald explains why the upcoming show can only ever be a total farce. I don’t find it very surprising that Simon Cowell’s trying to launch a DJ version of The X Factor, Ultimate DJ. The guy doesn’t seem to be motivated by anything other than money and thanks to the global popularity of EDM, a certain type of 'DJing' is now the most profitable way of performing music.
