It’s Saturday at Glastonbury and Maggie Rogers arrives looking like she’s embraced the spirit of the festival. She arrives in a floaty white dress and John Lennon shades, ready to play the show of her life.
“I had such a beautiful time playing Glastonbury in 2017 I made sure I got here early this time. There is something really special about this festival. It’s kind of the anti-Coachella – not to shit on Coachella – but I’ve been thinking about this show for so long. When I was making the record and whenever a song started coming together, I would have this out of body experience where I would imagine myself playing stage left on The Other Stage at Glastonbury, so when I got my slot I was so pleased.”
Maggie also shared her excitement at seeing The Killers headline the Pyramid stage for the second time. “I’ve had a Killers poster on my childhood bedroom door since, I don’t even know when. I saw them on the Day and Age tour in Washington DC in 2010 or 11. I’m really excited to see The Killers tonight.”
Maggie plays The Other Stage at 2:30pm on Saturday June 29. Watch the full interview above.
