As if three days of live music across a million and one stages isn’t enough, Glastonbury Festival 2015 will hold all manner of secrets – if you can find them!
First up, on Thursday you’ll want to be around the William’s Green tent. It’s located in the Festival’s own village green, on the road between the Pyramid Stage and The Acoustic Stage, William’s Green boasts a cornucopia of exotic plus the site’s biggest bar.
Opposite the Meeting Point, the area’s stage has previously hosted everyone from Elbow, Florence, Seasick Steve, The Horrors, Maximo Park, The 1975, Alt-J, Django Django and The Vaccines. This year should be no different, with Jamie xx, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Wolf Alice and more all rumoured to be performing secret sets tomorrow.
You may have heard rumours about the Dalai Lama showing his face, after he seemed to announce it earlier in the year. We can tell you he WILL indeed be on the Pyramid Stage, right before Lionel Ritchie on the Sunday!
After Florence was bumped up the lineup to headline, there’s STILL a huge gap to fill, which could easily host two guest performers. The Version have heard Noel Gallagher is favourite to perform, but don’t rule out Taylor Swift or Bastille.
There’s been much speculation as to who will open the Other stage this year, and we’ve heard The Charlatan’s are a dead cert for this one.
The site has loads of secret areas too – the infamous Rabbit Hole (you’ll have to look hard to find it) and the crow’s nest will both be back and this year, there’s a new area which Emily Eavis previously disclosed to 6music’s Lauren Laverne.
She said there’s a new area in “spinney [small group of trees] on up on the hill”. She added “It’s next to the park, it looks like a small wood,” she told Lauren Laverne. “And within those trees there’s going to be things happening.”
Finally, the holy grail of Glasto secrets, The Underground Piano Bar will be back but my god you’ve got to work hard to find that!
