13 Acts You DEFINITELY Have To See At Glastonbury This Weekend

Written by Tamsyn Wilce / June 24, 2016

In case you hadn't noticed, Glastonbury Festival is HAPPENING RIGHT NOW and despite the rain and the mud, it looks set to be uh-mazing. Luckily for you, we've got a bunch of really great acts playing across the three days of music and not that we're being biased or anything, but this lot should DEFINITELY be on your list. Even if you're watching from the sofa at home ;)

WHO? Bring Me The Horizon
WHERE/WHEN? Friday, Other Stage, 7:10pm    
WHY? They’ve grown into one of the most successful UK rock and metal acts on the planet and with this being their first Glastonbury performance, they've got a point to prove. Although maybe stay away from the muddy mosh pits.

WHO? Bastille
WHERE/WHEN? Friday, Other Stage, 8:40pm
WHY? EH EH OH EH OH... Sorry…
They’ve spent the past couple of years tearing up America but now Bastille are back and they’re better than ever. With a new album on its way, Glastonbury could be your first taste of what's to come.

WHO? AlunaGeorge
WHERE/WHEN? Friday, John Peel Stage, 9:00pm
WHY? The electro-pop duo have stormed back onto the scene with recent single ‘I Remember’ and it’s making its way onto every summer mixtape this year. Start YOUR summer right by getting your boogie on at the John Peel Stage Friday night.

WHO? Jess Glynne
WHERE/WHEN? Friday, Pyramid Stage, 4:30pm
WHY? She’s had more pop bangers than hot dinners so you can expect a whole lot of dancing and sweet, summery vibes from the North London girl.

WHO? Stormzy
WHERE/WHEN? Friday, Sonic, 9:30
WHY?  Because if you even argue with us on this one we’ll tell you to SHUT UP.

WHO? Daniel Sloss
WHERE/WHEN? Friday, Cabaret, 11:00pm
WHY? If your belly is hurting on Friday night, it better be from laughing so much at this award-winning Scottish comedian, and not from the dodgy food you ate earlier on in the day.

WHO? Gregory Porter
WHERE/WHEN? Sunday, Pyramid Stage, 1:00pm
WHY? Gregory Porter will bring a lot of soul and sophistication to the final day of Glastonbury, perfect if you’re feeling a little fragile by the time Sunday's hangover rolls around.

WHO? Ellie Goulding
WHERE/WHEN? Sunday, Pyramid Stage, 5:45pm
WHY? Returning to Glastonbury again this year, pop darling Ellie Goulding has a whole new album of songs to squeeze into her set this time around. How she’s going to choose, we don’t know, but we do know she should be one of your top choices for the weekend.

WHO? Jake Bugg
WHERE/WHEN? Sunday, John Peel Stage, 11:00pm
WHY? Back with his new album ‘On My One’, Glastonbury Festival will be one of the first opportunities to hear much of the record live. WHAT A TREAT!

WHO? Kai Humphries
WHERE/WHEN? Saturday, Cabaret, 12:55am
WHY? Because why wouldn’t you want to spend your Saturday night laughing along to one of Newcastle's funniest faces?

WHO? Coldplay
WHERE/WHEN? Sunday, Pyramid Stage, 9:30pm
WHY? Well, they’re headlining the final night so it’d be a bit silly to miss that, wouldn’t it? Expect fireworks, energy and ALL THE COLOURS.

WHO? Tom Odell
WHERE/WHEN? Saturday, Other Stage, 5:45pm
WHY? He’s got a new album out and it’s really quite lovely. You can expect even more loveliness from his performance at Glasto.

WHO? Raleigh Ritchie
WHERE/WHEN? Sunday, Sonic, 4:00pm
WHY? Having released his debut album earlier this year, 2016 looks to be another hugely successful year for Raleigh Ritchie, who has previously collaborated with both Stormzy and Plan B. Head to his set for slick R’n’B vibes (plus he’s in Game of Thrones which is pretty bloody cool).
