Glastonbury Festival 2008 Has Headliners!
Get ready all you mudlovers because Glasto is getting off the ground!!
NME has announced that Jay-Z, The Verve and Kings of Leon landed the headlining gigs at this year's Glastonbury festival which will go down June 27-29.
First to play out will be the Tennessee band Kings of Leon who will take the stage on Friday, June 27th. These guys can't get any traction in their home country but wow are they LOVED (to put it mildly) over in the U.K.
Hip hop master (I'm retiring/I'm not retiring) Jay-Z is scheduled to play Saturday, June 28th and The Verve will close it out (and no doubt bring it home) on Sunday, 29th.
Other acts confirmed for Glasto include Hot Chip, British Sea Power and um . . . no joke - Neil Diamond.
Go rock your wellies off!
