Glastonbury 2011: 10 new bands you must see!

Anna Calvi

John Peel, Saturday, 15:30-16:20

Catch the haunting sounds of one of the debuts of the year on the John Peel Stage.


The Park, Friday, 12:00-12:30

Such a perfect Glastonbury band in my opinion! Guaranteed to brighten your day and so good live, they could start your festival off in the best way possible!

Treetop Flyers

Other Stage, Saturday, 12:20-13:00

The winners of this years Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition are sure to take the Other Stage by storm!

Caitlin Rose

The Park, Friday, 14:15-15:00

Acoustic Stage, Sunday, 14:00-14:45

One of my favourite live acts around, she is wonderful, lots of spirit, humour and energy, plus a wonderful voice to boot. Do not miss.

James Vincent McMorrow

The Park, Sunday, 15:45-16:30

Completely blew me away at The Great Escape and someone I did an interview with a while back.  Sure to warm Sunday afternoon.

Dry the River

John Peel, Saturday, 14:15-15:00

A stirringly brilliant live band. Delicate folk songs turn into storming rock numbers. Wonderful!

Ellen and the Escapades

The Park, Saturday, 11:00-11:30

Winners of last years Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition and one of my most blogged about bands. And also from Leeds! Go along, they are great!

Foster the People

John Peel, Sunday, 13:00-13:40

Super summery, Vampire Weekend-esque beats and excellent songwriting. Ones to watch for sure.

Jim Jones Revue

Oxylers in West, Friday, 17:00-17:40

New Rock n Roll at its finest. Must be seen live to be fully appreciated.

Emily and the Woods

Acoustic, Saturday, 16:00-16:45

Another Glastonbury Emerging Talent finalist, this gorgeous lady will make your Saturday afternoon a whole lot lovelier with her velvet voice and sweet songs.

Also catch… Summer Camp, Sea of Bees, Warpaint, Darwin Deez, Louise and the Pins, Esben and the Witch…
