New additions for Glastonbury 2019 are here. The British festival confirms its Left Field, West Holts, and Acoustic Stage lineups.
Newly announced acts include Keane, Hawkwind, Fontaines D.C. and many more.
The Left Field stage brings together activists and artists. This year, the debates and discussions will target, as expected, Brexit, the environment, and the gig economy, among others. It will also mark the
Stonewall riots’ 50th anniversary with a panel on queer liberation.
This is the complete Left Field program:
West Holts is the home of bass music and the place where up-and-coming and cutting edge acts “share a bill” with legendary artists. This is the stage where you’ll hear everything from reggae and techno to afro grooves and hip hop.

The Acoustic Stage is, as you have guessed, the safe haven of people looking to enjoy acoustic tunes. Glastonbury calls it “the festival within a festival” and it has been the home of artists such as Hozier, Portishead, The Moody Blues, the mighty Robert Plant, and many more. You can easily recognize it thanks to its acoustic tunes and it being a circus tent.
This is the full list of artists playing at the Acoustic Stage this year:
Glastonbury is a five-day festival of contemporary performing arts that takes place in Pilton, Somerset, England. Aside from the performing musical acts, the festival also hosts dance, comedy, theatre, circus acts and other activities. Glastonbury is considered to be the largest greenfield festival in the world, with around 135,000 attendees. It was organised for the first time in 1970 and since 1981, the festival takes place every four out of five years. After a ‘fallow-year’ in 2018, the festival will return this year.
The English festival occupies an important place on every festival and music lover’s bucket list. Previous headliners include The Who, Foo Fighters, and Arctic Monkeys.
