John Lydon will play live with Public Image Ltd, while Kenny Rogers will play Glastonbury’s traditional Sunday afternoon legends slot. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, First Aid Kit and Deap Vally will also play early afternoon performances.
Rufus Wainwright and Vampire Weekend will perform on the Pyramid Stage. Wainwright also performed a set with his sister, Martha, on the Williams Green stage yesterday (June 29). Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds will go on directly before headliners Mumford and Sons, performing tracks from their latest album ‘Push The Sky Away’ as well as fan favorites from their illustrious career.
Mumford and Sons headline performance will close the three day festival. Speaking about the folk band’s Glastonbury show, Talking to NME backstage at Worthy Farm, banjo player Winston Marshall said that he was “pretty fucking nervous” about their first headline slot at the festival. “Fear. There’s a lot of fear involved. There’s never been any higher expectation for any show. We’re excited and terrified.”
Over on the Other Stage, Stornoway, I Am Kloot and Of Monsters and Men will perform, before Editors and Smashing Pumpkins take to the stage. The Other Stage will be headlined by The xx, fresh off the back of curating their own ‘Night + Day’ festivals in Lisbon, Berlin and London. Elsewhere on the site, Cat Power, Tim Burgess, Steve Mason, James Blake, Jessie Ware and Bobby Womack will appear.
Last night saw The Rolling Stones headline the Pyramid Stage, their first ever Glastonbury appearance.
