Glastonbury festival reveals Arcadia line-up

Daniel Avery, Basement Jaxx and Alan Fitzpatrick all set to play

Glastonbury festival has announced the line-up of its Arcadia area.

Basement Jaxx and Carl Cox are among the DJs who will take to the decks in the underbelly of Arcadia’s metallic spider-like structure.

Also set to appear over the three nights are Shy FX, Daniel Avery, Eats Everything, Alan Fitzpatrick and Red Dwarf’s Craig Charles, playing his Funk & Soul Show.

This year will see the launch of a new experimental performance by Arcadia as The Mechanical Orchestra which will feature sounds “from across the musical spectrum”.

Last month, the Worthy Farm festival confirmed the line-up for its Silver Hayes area. Among the big names confirmed to play are Annie Mac, Four Tet, Kano, Jungle, Ms Dynamite, Novelist and Stormzy. They will be joined by actor-come-DJ Idris Elba, Craig David and Kate Tempest (appearing as part of the Welfare Unit).

Adele, Coldplay and Muse will headline the main stage, with Beck, Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Chvrches, James Blake, PJ Harvey, ZZ Top, New Order, Disclosure, Bring Me The Horizon and many more also set to perform.

Chris Martin recently told NME that headlining Glastonbury is “the closest thing to a homecoming gig” the band have got.
