The Drums to play Glastonbury’s Strummerville campfire

New Yorkers are one of a host of acts playing intimate sets

The Drums are among the bands confirmed for the Strummerville camp at Glastonbury this year.

Once again, the charitable foundation set up in The Clash legend’s honour will be hosting its own campfire sessions at the exact spot where Strummer used to have his own fire.

Located at the Unfair Ground, Strummerville will be hosting acoustic performances around the fire starting at midnight and running late into the night.

Alongside the Brooklyn band, sets from Frank Turner, Ali Love, Fionn Regan, I Blame Coco and Lissie have been confirmed, with more names to be announced.

In the spirit of spontaneity, no slot times will be announced, and fans are encouraged to drop by throughout the day and see who is around.

Meanwhile, a film about the Strummerville project directed by punk legend Don Letts has been released on DVD.

“In a cultural climate that feels like punk never happened, Strummerville the film serves as a timely reminder of a way forward,” said Letts of the film. “It worked back then and it can work again – and man it needs to!”
