Festival Frolics: Get On Your Boots, Glastonbury 2011.

Fervent hysteria cued, grab a pen and a scrap of paper and get scribbling - this year's Glastonbury Festival line up is officially out and about. Last year was quite something. We basically did this. Back to the here and now however, if previous announcements seemed perhaps a little reserved, get on your boots and delve deep into the what looks to be a fairly fully-formed rundown of who is to grace the myriad stages and mudded fields of Worthy Farm this coming June. With May being the only month obstructing us from the Eavis' festival circuit rewirer, anticipation is already palpable, the bill boasting Morrissey and the Wu Tang Clan, on the same day, on the same stage, sandwiching B.B. King and Biffy Clyro. Tastes aside, it's questionable as to whether the Pyramid Stage has ever before been compiled and composed of bricks of such diverse colours and shades. The iconic hub of the world's greatest also features the long-awaited return of Paul Simon, gracing the lands of Somerset as he occupies the Sunday afternoon slot reserved for revered icons of eras past, whilst somewhat more contemporary idols include Sunday night headliner Beyoncé and Tinie Tempah, returning to scamper the boards following on from his bizarre, brief Snoop cameo of yesteryear. The Other Stage too has thrown up its customary haul of essentiality, Primal Scream airing their effervescent Screamadelica show on Friday, whilst Josh Homme's Queens Of The Stone Age return to the Farm for the first time since their face-melting, mud-pulverising 2002 show on the very same stage. Other Dots & Dashes highlights on t'Other Stage include The Kills, Bright Eyes and TV On The Radio. Fast-becoming the be-all-and-end-all of all things Glastonbury is Emily Eavis' Park Stage, its secret slots folkloric, its serene ambience euphoric, and this year its Athenian-themed stage is to welcome unrivalled acoustica from the likes of John Grant, Sea Of Bees, Jonny and festival veteran Gruff Rhys, whilst Alexis Taylor's About Group, Swedish käresta Lykke Li and Caribou also mesh into a bill made all the more enticing by a handful of secret ingredients. Oxlyers In West, over in the Dance Village conglomerates vibrant electro-tinged pop (Fujiya & Miyagi, Patrick Wolf, Cults, Metronomy, um... Brother...) that gradually fades into cutting-edge dance, with Jamie xx taking to the decks and SBTRKT showcasing his newly constructed live set, both Friday. Further highlights that we've already etched into the back of a used envelope include Battles, The Joy Formidable, Yuck and DJ Shadow, all taking to the John Peel, whilst this year's West Holts bill takes in anyone and everyone from Janelle Monáe to Jimmy Cliff, Aloe Blacc to Kool & The Gang.

Fingers on buzzers this coming Sunday if you're still without a ticket, as the final resale kicks off at 9am, with tickets available here, or on 0844 412 4635. For this year's full Glastonbury line up, the official site is here to enlighten.
