Festival line-up update – 4 Feb 2013
By Aly Barchi | Published on Monday 4 February 2013
So, in notable FLUU goings-on, the BBC has revealed it’ll live-stream this year’s Glastonbury Festival via TV, online, tablet and mobile on a greater scale than in past years, allowing viewers for the first time to “choose from simultaneous live streams from all the major stages”. Which is very, very nice of it.
Back to line up additions, and prior to details on new artist adds at Chagstock, Field Day, Meadowlands, Pulse, Relentless Boardmasters, V-Dub Island and Isle Of Wight, an honourable mention must first go to the Chicago-based Pitchfork Music Festival. The event’s very weird triplet of headlining acts will be… R Kelly, Björk, and Belle And Sebastian. That’s R Kelly… and Björk… and Belle And Sebastian. Imagine.
