It's that time of the year again to get out the wellies for the summer and to slide in muddy fields of good music as Glastonbury comes around for the biggest festival of the year. Glasto provides several days of music excellence from everyone you could possibly imagine and this weekend provides no lack of quality with three massive headliners. On the Friday night, Canada's finest in Arcade Fire make their Glastonbury headlining debut in what (from first hand experience) I can promise will be a memorable set. On the Saturday are British rockers Kasabian, following after the recent release of their newest album 48:13. Finally the weekend ends with the surprising headline debut for Metallica despite their 33 years in the heavy metal spotlight. Put these massive headliners along the likes of Dolly Parton, Elbow, Royal Blood, The Pixies, The Black Keys, Metronomy, Lily Allen... there really is something for everyone and that's only naming a tiny amount! The BBC will be providing coverage all weekend on BBC 2, 3, 4 and online too for those in the UK. I know I'm excited - make sure you join us for the TV coverage over the weekend and join in the music greatness!

    yay glasto! the official app says a few dj sets get underway this evening. not sure if they'll be streamed on tv or radio.

  • Mr C26/06/2014 at 19:05

    loving the stuff EE are doing this year. wifi cows, battery exchange programme, a charging tent plus an event app.

    Is that what that is? I like it. They should do big pictures like Art Attack.

  • Lukeh27/06/2014 at 20:41

    Arcade Fire will be live here from 10ish, maybe 10:30pm:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/events/errnc8/live/c4frbp

    The TV is delayed and doesn't start till 11pm, so that's the best place to see them live.

  • Pat W27/06/2014 at 20:43

    Elbow while the sun goes down is lovely. Not earth-shattering, not groundbreaking, not even good by their own standards (lots of newer stuff I don't know..).. but it is a nice relaxing way to spend an evening while I do the ironing..

    I had no idea Chvrches were even doing Glasto! Will definitely check their set out. They're incredibly addictive to listen to

    Wake Up was good, the other songs of the encore (at least that BBC2 showed) didn't do anything for me..

    Looking forward to Royal Blood, I think they're on the John Peel stage soon.

    he does seem like a genuinely nice guy.

  • Lukeh28/06/2014 at 21:22

    I watched their film a few years back and he's been through a lot of ****. Even through that he seemed very level headed.

    I love this photo of him back with the (current) band for the rock and roll hall of fame. That is a proper look of 'why am I here?'

    he literally just sang "nothing matters, no-one else"

    big tease.

    Ahhh the life of a roadie.

  • Lukeh28/06/2014 at 21:34

    I like the idea of that being a touring crowd, so they put them back into a truck and move them onto the next gig and unload etc

  • Mr C28/06/2014 at 21:34

    in an odd mix of emotions, i really like the band members (pigtails notwithstanding), and i'm enjoying the set. by why are all the songs so angry? how can anyone be that mad at the world?

    33 years is a long time to be angry. You'd think at this point their songs would be angry at self checkouts and trying to understand how to use ebay

  • Mr C28/06/2014 at 21:37

    the words he's saying between songs, don't correlate with the words he's saying during the songs.

    it's the musical equivalent of lewis hamilton's radio.

    they're both the same? six strings. are they tuned differently?

  • Lukeh28/06/2014 at 21:51

    Not to my knowledge. If I remember, he only used it on one song for lead and rhythm guitar seperately. It was odd.

  • Lukeh28/06/2014 at 21:52

    Can't faut Metallica's ability to perform though. Still totally solid after all these years.

    ha. good man.

    Yeah, all sorts. Plenty of 70s/80s disco which is fine by me. Some classics from 60s-today. Decent mixture really.

    just checked the metallica setlist.... looks like they played a pretty tame set,but its expected at a festival like that. i seriously recommend anyone who gets the chance to see them live to see them. just the best live shows, even if now dodgy beach balls are the least metal thing ever.......

  • Mr C29/06/2014 at 14:13

    lead singer of 1975 is michael hutchence, right? he didn't die, he got younger.

  • john29/06/2014 at 14:58

    anti-flag playing last on the left stage, probably not broadcast but if they are..... its must watch tv....

    cracking band.
