The world’s largest and most legendary festival, Glastonbury, have announced their plans for the tenth anniversary celebration of the infamous Shangri-La area. As far as tenth birthday parties go, it couldn’t get much better.
In honour of the event, Shangri-La will be hosting the Scum stage, the only stage dedicated to hosting heavy music at the Worthy Farm event. Curated by Earache Records, whilst details surrounding the area have been kept tightly under wraps, it’s now been unveiled that the stage will playing host to sets from Venom Prison, Employed To Serve, Gojira, Idles, Haggard Cat, Entombed AD, Jamie Lenman, Black Futures, Vodun, The Damned, Heavy Lungs, Scarlxrd, Slave To Sirens and Denzel Curry.
Also set to perform are official Earache Records DJs and former Prodigy guitarist Gizz Butt, who will be performing a DJ set in honour of the late Keith Flint. They will be joined by the previously announced lineup, which includes the likes of The Killers, The Cure, Stormzy and many, many more.
On the subject of playing Glastonbury, Venom Prison has stated;
“We are incredibly honoured to announce our debut performance at Glastonbury Festival 2019. For a band to play at a festival that wouldn’t normally have music or people like us in attendance for that matter to be this welcoming is amazing to see. We’d like to pay special thanks to the team at Earache for firstly having the audacity of swindling a stage out of Glastonbury in the first place but also inviting us to play, you all rule. The grind is real. See you in the fields.”
Glastonbury Festival takes place between June 26th and June 30th at Worthing Farm. Unfortunately, in true Glastonbury Festival fashion, the festival sold out in 12 minutes earlier this week, meaning unless you got lucky in general sale, you’ll be missing out.
