Pharrell, Patti Smith + More Added to 2015 Glastonbury Lineup
The 2015 Glastonbury Festival just got an extra dose of star power, thanks to the addition of performers such as Pharrell and Patti Smith.
Billboard reports that the two singers were added to the lineup, as well as Deadmau5, Suede and Lionel Richie.
If that's not enough to intrigue you, here are a few more names that are included on the roster: FKA Twigs, Florence and the Machine, Kanye West, Run the Jewels, Future Islands, Alabama Shakes, Flying Lotus, Mavis Staples, Mary J. Blige, Caribou, Azealia Banks, Death Cab for Cutie, Hot Chip, Todd Terje, Spiritualized, Perfume Genius, Jessie Ware, Charli XCX, Jamie xx, the Chemical Brothers, Belle & Sebastian, Father John Misty, La Roux, Sharon Van Etten, Courtney Barnett, Franz Ferdinand and Sparks, the Fall and Ryan Adams. Whew.
The festival will run from June 24–28 at Michael Eavis’ Worthy Farm in Somerset, south west England. Billboard notes that there is one name absent from the list — the "special guest" who secured the third and final Pyramid Stage headline slot.
Glastonbury recently made news when more than 20,000 concertgoers banded together to petition Kanye West from performing, calling the rapper "undeserving" of his placement. No worries, Kanye fans; Glastonbury is standing by their decision to have Kanye perform at the festival.
Kanye or no Kanye, this year still boasts a pretty epic roster. You can check out the complete lineup over on the Glastonbury Festival website.
