Yeah I've been waiting for English Teacher to be announced.  They must be a shoe in somewhere - I reckon Leftfield is a good shout or Woodsies.

Reckon English Teacher are primed for the yearly early Woodsies slot that gets absolutely rammed.

 

edit: actually scratch that didn’t somebody here already have info they were third down Leftfield on Saturday?

This is what spotify playlist analyser concluded from the list that @gigpusher had shared with me of a sample of acts on the stages released up to and including 16th (so significantly not including the stages from the last 24 hours.

 

Make of that what you will 😉 

The detail of their genres is here https://www.chosic.com/list-of-music-genres/

They were talking about being so skint while touring, they did a festival in Poland and could only get fish in milk in the artist area LOL. 

Lol 😆 Maybe it wasn't working out for them. Hoping they surprise us new music one day

Robert Fripp at Avalon and Albert Lee at Acoustic, not Indy but for those seeking a great guitarist....

Fripp: Best guitarist at Glastonbury 2024 I’d suggest! (Bowie, Talking Heads, Blondie, Gabriel, Eno, and his own bands…)

Not a lineup criticism at all - plenty on there I want to see - but it's always good to find more guitar based acts, as they're becoming increasingly rare.

 

I really like Fontaines DC, PJ Harvey and Idles; and the new Bloc Party and Newdad albums seem potentially okay; maybe Yard Act and The Breeders qualify too.

 

But does anyone have any recommendations of other bands or solo artists with those sorts of sounds? Would really appreciate some tips (I promise to be nice, even if it's something I wouldn't like).

 

Many thanks!

P.S. Does anyone know why Drenge stopped doing stuff? A sad loss. First discovered at William's Green - also a sad loss.

Drenge were ace and I would say fit right in with today's guitar vibe

Got em at Truck which I'm excited about. Met Harry in Melbourne on first album tour. Nice lad. Making it big or not really is so random.

That's a pretty cool website. 

 

When I checked just now though, it's changed slightly. Is it personalised for each person? On the Spotify app it says "Made for (my name)", but it's also supposedly the official Glastonbury playlist. 

 

Mine is below. Electronic has jumped up massively, possibly since Shangri-La got announced?

Definitely personalized based on followed artists, likes, and past listening history (including down ranking skips).

Throwing in another vote for Fat White Family! Get into the top 10 songs they are most likely to play on setlist fm. Their live gigs tend to be an experience too.

Also yeah i absolutely love Drenge, come back lads.

Williams Green was so good for the lesser known but great 'guitary' stuff. One of my fave sets of 2022 was Penelope Isles at that stage. Id seen them before that in Manchester but they absolutely nailed it and it is a core glastonbury memory for me. Well worth checking those guys out if you've not listened before... still hoping they might get announced.

 

Love all the bands you mentioned, fontaines are un-missable for me, they keep getting better and better.

 

Would second watching Mdou Moctar if you want to see a very good guitarist and a brill live set, but it's not the same style as the stuff you mentioned so worth listening to first. Also second soccer mommy, skindred, alvvays, Fat Dog. Bob Vylan have some almost limp bizkit/rage riffs behind them too.

 

Thanks for Drenge recommendation, hadn't heard before but love it!
