Every year the world’s music festivals announce their line-ups, generally in dribs and drabs, each competing with one another for the slickest offerings – be they pop, rock, dance, legends or any other kind of make-up.

So when this morning’s first “full” line-up for this year’s Glastonbury Festival was announced, after months of speculation and incorrect guesswork, it took our expectations … and raised them to a whole new level, well and truly blowing the roof off 2017’s festival season!...

Hell, this year’s edition is probably just as memorable and mentioned for its sludge-like mud as for any of the bands, the resulting substance described by one as a kind of chocolate mousse. Attendees can also be thankful for...

Every year, when the Glastonbury line-up starts to be announced, there’s always the debate around which band or artist will take to the coveted headlining spot.

In the list were some of the greatest entertainers from the last 30 years, and...
