Glastonbury 2014 is upon us and, like that, music fans from across the globe will be making the pilgrimage to Worthy Farm to see their favourite acts. But beyond these acts, there are a lot of fantastic new artists this year who have the chance to make a huge impact.
Here are our top ten to see at the festival this year.
The Rails provide folk-rock in its purest form. They’ve got rich harmonies, brass and melodies with a vintage feel. They play the park stage on Sunday.
Jake Isaac has a beautiful earthy voice, and he knows how to write an acoustic song that sounds big. He plays the Other Stage on Saturday.
The Riptide Movement channel classic rock with a contemporary twist. They’re hitting up the acoustic tent on Saturday.
The Stepkids are weird. One minute of ‘Troubadour’ tells you that. But something this weird can only go well! They hit the West Holts on Friday.
Hudson Taylor. You all know them by now. Acoustic-folk duo with a Simon & Garfunkel quality. They’re playing the Avalon Stage on Friday.
Echo And The Empress are just made for Glastonbury with their unique brand of pop-folk. They play the John Peel Stage on Friday.
All We Are describe themselves as ‘The Bee Gees on Diazepam’. We honestly couldn’t put it better ourselves. They play the Park Stage on Friday.
Nick Mulvey is phenomenal, and his acoustic tunes are both settling and exciting. A rare and enjoyable mix. He opens the Pyramid Stage on Saturday.
Hook-heavy and festival ready, The Black Tambourines replace complexity with excitement. John Peel Stage. Saturday. Be there.
Gibson Bull makes acoustic guitars exciting in the same way Ed Sheeran did. It’s acoustic-coloured trip-folk. He plays the Avalon Stage on Sunday.
