Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses to headline Glastonbury Festival

Date: March 23, 2023 Time: 01:46:49

Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses will headline the Glastonbury Music Festival this year. They will join Elton John, whose participation was announced in December. His performance will be the final leg of the singer’s farewell world tour. Variety writes about it.

The festival will take place June 21-25 at Somerset’s Worthy Farm. Arctic Monkeys will open on Friday night and Guns N’ Roses will play on Saturday.

This choice of musicians caused outrage: all the headliners are white men. For example, the president of the British Independent Music Association, Nadia White, wrote on Twitter: “Glastonbury can easily give a place to a group of underrepresented artists to be part of the necessary changes in the industry.”

Freelance journalist Roisin O’Connor criticized the organizers for their lack of support for girl bands early in their careers: “Situations like this year’s Glastonbury lineup are a direct symptom of the industry’s inability to support female bands. female artists from scratch. Release them on small stages, on the radio, in live venues.

Festival organizer Emily Eavis responded that they are “trying their best” but that it is not always possible to represent all groups of artists equally. Eavis revealed that one of the headliners was supposed to be a woman, but due to changes to the tour, she had to leave. Eavis added that there are likely to be two female headliners in 2024.

Other musicians performing at Glastonbury include Lizzo, Måneskin, Lana Del Rey, Lewis Capaldi, Amadou & Mariam, Carly Rae Jepsen, Chvrches, Wise Blood, Alt-J, Manic Street Preachers and The War on Drugs.

Remember that in honor of the 150th anniversary of name-brand jeans and the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, Levi’s teamed up with Rolling Loud. The brand became the first global partner of the largest rap music festival. Each Rolling Loud this year will feature a special limited edition Levi’s capsule collection.
