You Me At Six’s Josh Franceschi on “bucket list” desire to play Glastonbury

"Glastonbury is one of those that makes us want to be part of history"

You Me At Six singer Josh Franceschi has said that playing Glastonbury remains a “bucket list” goal for the British rock giants, after a career spanning more than a decade.

Despite being regular faces at festivals including Reading & Leeds, the band are still yet to make their debut in the hallowed fields of Worthy Farm.

Speaking to NME, Franceschi revealed that they’re eagerly awaiting their Glastonbury debut.

“With Glastonbury, you’ll get there when you deserve it and maybe it hasn’t been our time yet,” revealed Franceschi.

“But Glastonbury isn’t the be all and end all for us, although it’s been on our bucket list because of the prestige and the legends who have played it. We’ve done all the festivals we want to, but hopefully it will come.”

Franceschi’s comments comment ahead of a busy festival season this year, including a stop-off at Derbyshire’s Y Not Festival.

While the band are seasoned veterans of festival season, Franceschi says that The Amazons could be headliners in future.

“Bands like The Amazons have a really exciting future, I’m enjoying them. Bands of that nature are coming through, they’ve had a good few years,” he explained.

“There’s also bands like us, Bring Me The Horizon and Architects too. We’ve been around for a while and we try to move things forward, but you look at The Amazons and realise that newer acts are getting the recognition they deserve too.

“It’s not always easy to break through, but it’s not through a lack of quality bands.”

You Me At Six will play Y Not Festival in July.
