Shangri-La will take on the 'Politics, Sholitics' theme this year
Rob Da Bank, The Skints, Craig Charles and Mixmaster Morris are also slated to make appearances at Shangri-La, known for its wild, all-night parties. The full line-up is available via Glastonbury’s website.
Aligning with this year’s general election, Shangri-La will take on the ‘Politics, Sholitics’ theme this June and host the ‘Shang Re-election’. “This year’s story aims to help people connect with the political process and demonstrate that politics can be for them and by them,” read a press release released last month.
“After the flinchingly realistic horrors of last years Corporate Hell, this year Shangri-Hell has been occupied. Every office has been taken over by some of the 99% desperate for change. Each Nano-venue has become a political party, and everyone here has a point to make. There is nothing too silly or too serious to be said, there is only the process of activism, the skies filled with banners, the streets packed with protesters and placards.”
Shangri-La includes the open air hell stage, the heaven area and a hexagonal maze of nano venues. Glastonbury takes place from June 25-28. It will be headlined this year by Foo Fighters, Kanye West and The Who, with Florence + The Machine, Paul Weller, Mary J. Blige, Patti Smith, Suede and Pharrell Williams among those also set to perform.
