The Drums for Glastonbury

The Drums have been confirmed for the Strummerville camp at Glastonbury next week.

The charitable foundation, set up in The Clash legend’s honour, will be hosting its own campfire sessions at the exact spot where Strummer used to have his own fire. Located at the Unfair Ground, Strummerville will be hosting acoustic performances around the fire starting at midnight and running late into the night. In the interest of spontaneity and to encourage fans to drop by throughout the day, no times slots will be announced.

Meanwhile, a film about the Strummerville project directed by punk legend Don Letts has been released on DVD. Speaking about the film, Letts gushed, "In a cultural climate that feels like punk never happened, Strummerville the film serves as a timely reminder of a way forward. It worked back then and it can work again – and man it needs to!"
