Iceland Airwaves

So, today’s main festival headline relates to Glastonbury and booze. Glasto HQ has re-clarified its traditional stance on alcohol, cautioning ticket-holders that any drinks taken into the festival have to be for one’s personal – aka not commercial – imbibition only. Oh, and it all has to be in plastic bottles, not glass.

The bottles can, says Michael Eavis, be carried on site in a shopping trolley (despite an initial email cautioning against trolleys), provided whoever’s shopping the trolley looks capable of drinking its contents his/herself. Which Michael advises, via this official note, that he/she abstain from doing because it isn’t very healthy. Great, since we’re clear on that, it’s time to pass over to a bank of brand new artist gains at the following festivals:
