Glastonbury Festival organisers have announced the 2019 line-up for their Silver Hayes dance area, and as you could imagine, it’s a bit of a corker.
Returning with its five original stages, alongside their new ‘micro venue’ No Average Groove, 2019’s Silver Hayes will also see their main Sonic Stage return with a brand new design, and will house the likes of TQD, My Nu Leng and a B2B session with Wilkinson and Sub Focus on the Friday. Saturday 29th June will see Crazy P, Dan Shake and Artwork hit up the afternoon, with electronica-galore driving through the evening (Peggy Gou, Camelphat, Denis Sulta). Sunday will see the return of Maverick Sabre, with other rising talents featured, including Ocean Wisdom, Emerald, Ray BLK, Tion Wayne and Hardy Caprio.
No Average Groove, which is new for 2019, will feature all genres of music and styles, and has been cited as the ‘new hidden gem of Silver Hayes’. Expect a lot of dancing, coupled with some of underground dance’s finest talents.
The Wow Stage also returns this year, showcasing the best in both emerging talent and established names from House, Techno, Garage, Grime, Drill and Hip Hop. Wow favourites Four Tet, Ben UFO, Midland and Craig Richards return for the best in House and Techno. AJ Tracey will headline the stage on Saturday, alongside appearances from Headie One, Fredo and Suspect. Sunday highlights will see an exclusive live performance from Inner City, alongside a lo-fi set from Ross From Friends.
2019’s Silver Hayes will also see the Gully and Blues stages morph together, bringing a wealth of global sounds under one venue. Kojey Radical, Mala, Flohio and the Havan Meets Kingston Sound System are just some of the highlights. Meanwhile the Pussy Parulure will see a mixture of funk, jazz and late-night moods, including SAmpa The Great, Eliza and The House Gospel Choir.
Finally, the BBC Introducing Stage will also be back for this year, with its stage breakdown set to follow imminently.
