Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) the charity that delivers emergency medical aid worldwide regardless of race, religion, politics or gender have tweeted, (here), more acts for their venues on The Common, one of the late night areas of this year's Glastonbury Festival and just updated is the line-up for Campo Pequeno.

The Raghu Dixit Project
They have announced the MSF Live Acoustic Stage will feature a line-up that includes Raghu Dixit, J-Treole, Treetop Flyers, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Baby Sol, Liam Bailey, Aruba Red, Kaya, Smoke Feathers, Nessi Gomes, Jonny Berliner, Ed Sheeran, Abandoman, and Ghostpoet.

MSF will also curate Bassline Circus on Friday for one very special night featuring acts all coming together to show their support for Medecins Sans Frontieres who deliver emergency medical aid worldwide.

Joining a line-up that includes the previously announced Shlomo, Jamie Woon, Ed Sheeran, True Tiger, and The Boxettes are Toddla T & MC Serocee, Gentleman's Dub Club, Latin Dub Soundsystem, Cal Jader, and Killa Dan with more surprise guests promised on the night.

You can also find Medecins Sans Frontieres at another venue, a groundbreaking new Interactive Haiti Earthquake Venue also in The Common. Set at the scene of the Haiti earthquake, and like nothing seen before from a charity at a UK festival. This innovative venue will tell the story of MSF's work on the frontline through interactive exhibitions, including an emergency operating theatre converted from a shipping container, cholera treatment centre, Haiti-inspired graffiti and photography exhibitions.

With a theme set somewhere between Mexico City and Salvador, The Common will be a mystical world, and "sumptuous Latino playground filled with the delights of a vibrant world of decadence. Home to twisted voodoo parlours, debauched bordellos and criminal party houses".

The Common will be located in the field where Arcadia was last year, with both venues swapping locations, and the venues include Zona Bassline, billed as "a vibrant neighbourhood brimming with music, Latino circus freaks and a street party vibe."

Also confirmed today is the line-up for Saturday in Zona Bassline with BStorm, DJ Ratty, Secret headliner, Warlock, High Rankin, Cisor, Circo Gringo (Bassline Circus Show), Randall, International guests "but waiting for visas", Special secret appearance, Special guest, and Fantazio Power Trio.

Sunday's line-up features Fairtunes DJs, Dizraeli and the Small Gods, Uproot Andy, Papaya Republic, Uproot Andy, Mano De Dios, Fairtunes & Movimientos DJs, Fairtunes Dance Off: Glastonbury vs Boogaloop, Colombia, and Systema Solar.

The Campo Pequeno line-up has also just been announced and includes Lucha Britannia Mexian Wrestling, and Movimientos DJs on Thursday. On Friday it's the turn of Rob Mello, Zero 7 (DJ Set), Justin Robertson, Sugarhouse Sessions, and Bearded Kitten events including "Fiesta de la Noche", "Toro Libre", and "Los Interactivos".

On Saturday the venue hosts Jim Stanton & James Hillard, Friendly Fires (DJ Set), Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Unabombers, DJ Yoda, Tropical Taste, a trio of special guests, and more Bearded Kitten hosted events.

Whilst on Sunday the bull ring repeats the same Bearded Kitten events, plus a tomato fight ("La Tomatina"), a secret headliner, Latino Fiesta ft Jose Luis, Latin Dub Soundsystem, Reggae Roast with Exel & Moodie, and Tropical Taste.

A further release of a limited number of cancelled tickets, will go on sale from 9am on Sunday 17th April 2011, although in order to do so you must have registered beforehand to be eligible to buy a ticket.
