Glastonbury Goals: 10 Must-See Acts In Somerset

Break out your raincoats and Hunter Boots kids, the 33rd Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts is going down this weekend! Long before Bonnaroo or Coachella were a thing, the almost annual event (which interludes every fifth year) was drawing music-lovers by the droves to the muddy fields of Worthy Farm in southwest England. Boasting a next-level lineup of acts, this year’s festival is sure to be one for the books. Whether you are partaking in the happenings first-hand or just want to channel the Glastonbury spirit (pro tip: BBC is hosting a live stream!), we’ve compiled the artists to know below. Add them to your Spotify queue, then scope out some of our favorite rainy-day outfit ideas!
