Glastonbury 2024 adds more names to line-up as stage announcements begin with Acoustic Stage

Glastonbury has added more names to its 2024 line-up, as organisers share the bill for this year’s Acoustic Stage.

The official 2024 line-up for Glastonbury was shared last month – with Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA set to headline the iconic Pyramid Stage this summer, while Shania Twain will perform in the legends slot on the Sunday.

Now, following the main announcement, the organisers of the iconic Worthy Farm festival have begun counting down the weeks to this year’s instalment by beginning to announce the artists playing at individual stages around the site.

Announced today (April 12), the announcement of those playing at individual stages has kicked off with the Acoustic Stage – and several new artists being confirmed as performing across June 28 and June 30.

The Friday slot (June 28) will see performances led by Scouting For Girls, as well as Tanita Tikaram, Deverish, Stornoway, Josh Rous, Angie McMahon, John Smith, The Burma and more. It will also feature sets from Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ cover band, Red Hot Chilli Pipers.

Saturday’s line-up at the Acoustic Stage includes Birmingham rock group Ocean Colour Scene, as well as Ralph McTell, The Manfields (featuring Paul Jones and Mike d’Abo), Albert Lee and more. Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers will also be performing, as will Russell Crowe with his annual Indoor Garden Party.

Finally, Sunday’s slot is led by Gipsy Kings (featuring Tonino Baliardo), Judy Collins
London Community Gospel Choir, Bernard Butler, Michele Stodart, Grace Petrie, Frankie Archer and more.

Check out the full line-up for the Acoustic Stage above.

The line-ups for the remainder of the stages around the festival site are set to be announced in the run-up to this year’s event – including many new names added to the bill. You can check out the first wave of artists added to the 2024 edition here.

Earlier this week, it was reported that this year’s edition has seen the “highest percentage of ticket balances paid ever”, meaning there will be “very limited” tickets available in the re-sale. You can find out more information about Glastonbury 2024 and the re-sale here, and look back at NME‘s highlights from Glasto 2023 here.

As for other Glastonbury news, on Wednesday (April 10), rumours emerged that Lulu could be attending the event in what would be her last ever live performance. The singer is currently wrapping up her ‘Champagne For Lulu’ tour, which will be her last and, originally, the farewell shows were set to draw to a close with a final show at The London Palladium later this month (April 17).

Elsewhere, the eight finalists for the festival’s Emerging Talent Competition have been announced, with one of which soon to be given the opportunity to play at the 2024 event.
