As one of the largest events of the UK festival calendar, Glastonbury probably doesn’t need that much of an explanation. Turning Worthy Farm into pretty much a pop-up village year in, year out, Glastonbury returns in next weekend for the last time before its fallow year in 2018. This year’s festival is set to be headlined by Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran respectively and will even feature Jeremy Corbyn introducing Run The Jewels on the Pyramid Stage.
6 bands you cannot miss at Glastonbury 2017.
Long-time favourites of Mix It All Up, October Drift are finally heading to Glastonbury! Ahead of their performance, the band have just released a live version of their brand new track ‘It Hangs‘. The band’s lively, vigorous performances aren’t to be missed.
British Sea Power
British Sea Power are new favourites to Mix It All Up following their performance at Common People Southampton last month. The band released their latest album ‘Let The Dancers Inherit The Party’ earlier this year which includes singles such as the fiercely catchy ‘Keep On Trying (Sechs Fraunde)’. If you haven’t already seen British Sea Power live, don’t be like me thinking it was all hype, because it’s most definitely not!
Brighton based quartet, Black Honey have been going from strength to strength over the past few years. Yet to release their debut album, the band have been releasing a steady stream of strong singles and have gained a substantial fanbase. The psych rock band even scored number one on the UK vinyl chart with their single ‘Hello Today’ earlier this year and are also set to support Royal Blood on tour later this year across the UK and Europe.
London via Japan noise-rock quartet Bo Ningen will bring their neo-psychedelic show to Glastonbury this year. Bo Ningen are famous for their remarkable, energetic live performances and the band have also been named by MOJO as “the most exciting young band in London”!
Summery, jangly indie-pop hits galore are Tourists. We first listened to Tourists about a year ago around the release of their single ‘Quiet Room’. The Torquay quintet have since played various gigs around the country as well as releasing their latest single ‘Masquerade’ just a few months ago.
London’s Mt Wolf recently released their long-awaited debut album ‘Aetherlight’ which met and exceeded all expectations, providing a beautiful, ethereal album full of melancholy and power. The band have an exquisite, electronic-folk sound which is both mesmerising and diverse. A must-see live.
