Glastonbury has announced the full line-up for the Dance Village section of the festival.
Thursday evening will see the festival kicked off by the new WOW! stage, which features a pineapple-shaped DJ boot, flamingo sculptures and “kitsch tropicalia”.
Over the course of the long weekend, the stage will play host to Joy Orbison and Jamie xx (Thursday), Jamie Jones, Matt Tolfrey and Horsemeat Disco (Friday), and Redlight, L-Vis 1990, Breakage, Shortstuff and The Heatwave (Saturday), but most exciting as far as FACT’s concerned is the Sunday spectacle, which sports Kode9, Ikonika, Terror Danjah, Darkstar, Hudson Mohawke, Dam-Funk, Roska, Untold, Four Tet, Funkineven and more. Obviously there’s some right crap in between – but it’s a big festival, you’ll deal with it.
Also new in 2010 is Cubehenge, an outdoor venue that will see DJs perform to an audience surrounded by a construction of “monumental cubes”, which at night will be “lit from within, shifting and changing colour iridescently”. Will Saul, Norman Jay, The Orb (live), Zero 7, Baobinga, RSD (live) and more feature.
Big names on the East Dance stage include Fatboy Slim, Chase and Status, Roger Sanchez, Example and Plan B, while Saturday features N-Dubz, Chipmunk, Kelis, Giggs, Roll Deep and plenty of other live performers from the UK’s, er, urban circuit. Crystal Castles live is the biggest draw on Sunday.
Meanwhile on the West Dance stage, there’s Boys Noize, Simian Mobile Disco, Dubfire, Delphic, Rusko, Chromeo, Aeroplane, Riva Starr, Magnetic Man and more.
