Glasgowbury is now entering its thirteenth year as a festival and it just keeps getting better. Yesterday they announced the first list of names who’ll be appearing this year and there’s tasty choices for all music heads out there.

133059_1787976945938_1434990324_31885493_7829037_oThe festival aims to support local Northern Irish bands and The Answer, The Japanese Popstars and And So I Watch You From Afar aim to bring in the punters and demonstrate how strong Northern bands are right now. Helping them in this task will be (deep breath) Jetplane Landing, Little Bear, Axis Of, Ed Zealous, In Their Thousands, More Than Conquerors, Million Dollar Reload, Trucker Diablo, The Bonnevilles, Runaway GO, PigsAsPeople, Vanilla Gloom, The Wood Burning Savages, Pretty Child Backfire, Furlo, Robyn G Shiels and Rosie Carney – with many, many more still to be announced (about 50 from what we’ve heard).

The festival will take place over two days for the first time, July 20th – 21st with a ‘County Derry Showcase’ happening on the 19th…so really a three day job. If you want more than music to spend three nights ibn a field then Glasgowbury have you sorted as they’ve also announced their G-Spot Comedy stage will return and there’ll be a heap of carnival/Samba band activated, technology and gaming demonstrations / activities.

Tickets for Glasgowbury 2013, priced from just £35, are on sale now from this location.
