Musikens midsommar firas rejält på Glastonbury

Den engelska festivalgiganten Glastonbury säljer alltid slut så fort biljetterna släpps i oktober och måste förbokas, trots att spelprogrammet aldrig presenteras i förväg. I veckan släppte festivalen sitt program och festivalgeneralen Michael Eavis visar med råge vilka som är störst på arenan av evenemang. Jag har träffat flera av artisterna som spelar och nästan alla namn på mina årslistor är med, flera svenska namn är med i listan i år vilket är kul,  men så är det också en festival som tillsammans med Woodstock och Roskilde skapat schablonbilden av hur en festivalen bör vara. Personligen saknar jag kanske något större namn för att vara fullt nöjd och jag tycker det var något bättre när jag var där såväl 1997 som 1998. Hur som helst är det fortfarande något i hästväg, finns något för alla smaker och det är bara att imponeras. Europas bästa festival och dessutom får man alltid kul och galenskapen är stor, så åka vill jag!

Bokade i år är den gedigna listan av namn som U2, Coldplay, Beyoncé, Morrissey, Elbow, Pendulum, Biffy Clyro, Paolo Nutini, Plan B, B.B.
