Wherever you will be hanging your hat this weekend, whether you’re joining the sheep at Worthy Farm or you’ve got your feet up in front of the telly, us here at TGTF will have you covered when it comes to Glastonbury 2014. The dedicated people they are, the folks at the BBC will be working all hours during the festival and feeding us live coverage as it becomes available. What does this mean for you? We’ll be passing along all the best bits to you, our faithful readers.

I have a soft spot in my heart for London’s White Lies: they were one of the bands that played the first show I ever covered as a music writer; they were part of a NME-sponsored tour here in America. ‘Farewell to the Fairground’ off their debut (and #1) album was one of the songs that was met with incredible cheers when it was played at their first show ever in DC. They’re now international stars but it’s great to see them play an old classic like this to the delight of their fans at an event as big as Glasto. Watch them perform it at the Other Stage Sunday at Glastonbury 2014 below.
