Glastonbury main stage band details announced

Special plans afoot for the 2010 event

Glastonbury main stage band details announced
Glastonbury festival organisers are planning to book 40 bands to play on the Pyramid Stage at the event in 2010 – one act from the bill of the festival for each of the past 40 years it has been running.

Organiser Emily Eavis told BBC 6music that as a result of the booking plan many large acts would appear on smaller stages across the site.

"We want to have a band from every year on the Pyramid Stage," she said. "We'll have a lot of the biggest performances on some of the tiniest stages."

Eavis went on to reveal that the Left Field stage would not feature at the 2009 bash, as it had been taken over by the expanded Trash City and Shangri La areas.

She said: "That whole area is going to be like a late-night den with snake pits and all sorts."

Bruce Springsteen and Blur are set to play headline slots at the bash, with Neil Young strongly rumoured to be the as-yet unannounced final headliner.

Glastonbury festival takes place on June 26-28 in Somerset. for more information.
