The Most Anticipated Acts to See at Glastonbury
As far as modern-day music festivals go, Glastonbury is kind of the grandmother of them all. Attracting crowds dotted with celebs and models (Kate Moss, anyone?) long before Coachella became synonymous with see-and-be-seen, the Somerset, England fest is still a sonic force to be reckoned with. To parse this year's lineup—and expand your listening if you aren't attending—we've rounded up the 11 most-anticipated acts. Read on.
Go for: Josh Tillman’s swagger-drenched live performances and catchy, groove-friendly songs.
Go for: A chance to be in the presence of one of punk music’s most iconic and important figures.
Go for: An electric performance from the steadily-rising Austin act, led by completely staggering front woman Brittany Howard.
Go for: Well, Kanye. And every conflicting bit of drama he brings to the festival circuit, whether in the form of stellar production value or getting booed.
Go for: Lead singer Samuel T. Herring’s impassioned performance and growling vocals.
Go for: Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend playing the greatest hits to close the festival.
Go for: Utterly danceable electro-pop beats and a crowd that will likely know the lyrics.
