6 songs you definitely shouldn’t miss at Glastonbury Festival 2017

Glastonbury Festival 2017 is just weeks away

Glastonbury Festival is the king of UK festivals with 135,000 fans flooding to the Somerset town every year for the very best in music and entertainment the world has to offer. Among the lineup this year are some songs you absolutely must be there for – from Mowtown and reggae classics to recent festival epics, check out 6 songs not to miss at this year’s Glastonbury festival.

I Want You Back – The Jackson 5

The Jacksons (no longer The Jackson 5 for obvious reasons) are coming to Glastonbury to celebrate their 50th anniversary. This is huge for fans of Motown and Michael Jackson as Jermaine, Marlon, Jackie and Tito will reunite to play a set of the Jacksons’ biggest classics. Expect to hear the likes of ABC, I’ll Be There and of course, their biggest and most feel-good track I Want You Back.

We Are Your Friends – Justice

We Are Your Friends will always be a song to put crowds in an ecstatic mood, especially at Glastonbury when surrounded by good friends, good music and good times. The French electronic duo are famed for putting on outstanding live performances  and if you’re not screaming this at the top of your lungs whilst dancing around in the mud, you’re really missing out.

54-46 Was My Number – Toots & The Maytals

The reggae extraordinaries are coming to Glastonbury this year and bringing along their ska classics with them. Throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s, Toots and The Maytals released some of the biggest reggae hits off all time including Pressure Drop, Sweet And Dandy, and of course, 54-46 Was My Number. Amazingly, the band have been gigging since 1962 and still to this day draw huge crowds of fans who come to listen to their music. This song will be a big one at Glastonbury Festival this year.

Glitter And Trauma – Biffy Clyro

You may be more familiar with Biffy Clyro’s more recent work but if there’s a song that’s going to raise the roof at Glastonbury this year it’s going to be Glitter And Trauma. A fan favourite for the cult that follows Biffy, Glitter and Trauma is from their 2004 album Infinity Land and absolutely explodes with noise when it kicks in. Expect the entire crowd to be singing “you are the human strobe, you are the human strobe”, when this song comes on.

Stayin’ Alive – Bee Gees

Barry Gibb is returning to Glastonbury after making a surprise appearance during Coldplay’s set last year. The 70 year old is expected to be playing the legends slot and covering some of the Bee Gee’s biggest songs such as Night Fever, How Deep Is Your Love and Stayin’ Alive. Expect plenty of nostalgia, plenty of sing-alongs and plenty of top notch 70s disco.

Everlong – Foo Fighters

One of the three headliners this year, Foo Fighters are coming back to make amends for their ill-fated headline booking in 2015 when they had to pull out due to Dave Grohl breaking his leg. Among their extensive back-catalogue, Everlong, stands out as being a most poignant, heart-felt wonder song of a rock track. When playing live the Foo’s often sing it entirely acoustic up until the end when they launch back into the distorted, electric guitar version. No-one will be stood still for this one.

So there you have it! If you’re going to Glastonbury Festival this year, dance your feet raw, discover new music, experience the variety, look out for each other and have an incredible time!
