Glastonbury 2015 Is Finally Here! Here’s What You Need To Know…

It sells out in minutes and the finer details are always shrouded in secrecy until the eleventh hour, but that doesn't stop us from getting ridiculously excited about Glastonbury Festival. Every. Single. Year. Dig out your Hunters, it's time to get your Glasto on...

Florence And The Machine are replacing Foo Fighters and headlining the Pyramid stage on Friday 26th June. What. A Way. To. Kickstart. The Festival. Gutted for Foo Fighters obviously and get well soon to Dave Grohl and his leg but we can’t help thinking Florence was destined to headline. Long may the comeback queen reign on…

The Who have also been confirmed to headline. The gig will mark an unbelievable 50 years in the biz – so Michael Eavis wasn’t wrong when he teased that one major act had ‘been around for a long time’!

Pharrell will also be there! So we’ll be boogying (are we using that word?) on down to ‘Happy’ and hopefully the man in question will be wearing something as fabulous as this…

Hopefully FKA Twigs will be wearing something a bit like this…

… Because she’s confirmed too! Which means R: Patz is also confirmed. Which means we’ll probably get a replay of him dancing (Coachella stylee.) Plenty of bands for him to get into the groove to, as well. Hello, Alt-J. Rudimental, Jungle, and Mark Ronson…

Kimye is confirmed! Well, Kanye is confirmed (to headline Saturday night). But we all know that means multiple outfit changes, selfies with baby North and possibly another hair colour change for Kim. And die-hard Glasto musos are signing petitions? We can’t figure out why…

Lionel Ritchie is confirmed to play the Teatime Legends slot on Sunday afternoon. He’s no Dolly, but just try convincing yourself you won’t be dancing ‘All Night Long’. You can’t, can you? Plus, there’s the bonus prize of Nicole Richie and her pink hair possibly popping up backstage. Festival style crush alert.

 The Strokes won’t be there, even though they’re rumoured to be recording a new album. Boo hoo, indeed. Console yourself by going to see them at British Summer Time in Hyde Park on 18th June.

It doesn’t look like Oasis will be reforming after all, and even Blur are too busy with their sets for Hyde Park and Benicassim (drummer Dave Rowntree confirmed recently). There goes the Brit pop battle: rematch. Spoil sports.
