More acts confirmed for Glastonbury
Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has confirmed some more acts for this summer's festival during an interview with The Guardian newspaper.
She revealed that joining the already incredible line up will be BRIT award winners Mumford & Sons, blues legend BB King, Janelle Monáe, Primal Scream and The Chemical Brothers. Eavis also spoke of her excitment to have U2 headlining the opening night:
"When people hear those anthems in that field it will just be amazing, you can't really go wrong with those songs."
In addition to talking about the bands and acts that have signed up for this year's event, she addressed the issue of Beyoncés forthcoming performance, which has been criticised because her musical style deviates from Glastonbury's typical rock 'n' roll appeal:
"I think when you've been in a field for four days you want something from a completely different sphere, that takes you somewhere else. It will be good to get a bit of female power at the end. She'll pack a punch and give us a fitting send off."
