Music lovers who will be attending the Glastonbury Music Festival this year will be eating out of a salad bowl of music. This is because Michael Eavis, the English diary farmer who runs the festival of vibes, has decided to bring in a variety of artists from different backgrounds and cultures. The increasingly innovative Eavis has crowd favourites like Snoop Dogg, Dizzee Rascal, Vampire Weekend, Wurzel, Corinne Bailey Rae and Fatboy Slim hitting the stages from Wednesday June 23 to Sunday June 27, 2010. Femi Kuti, the son of Nigeria's Afro-Beat Legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, will also be jamming at the event. Glastonbury 2010 is being headlined by Irish Rock band, U2.

Micheal Eavis believes this year's line up of acts is the most staggering in the festival's 40 year history. Femi Kuti will be performing on the Pyramid Stage on Friday 25th June alongside U2. This is indeed a big break for him as he's been causing some stir in music circles internationally. Other great figures performing at the acclaimed festival include Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones, Slash, Ray Davies, Mos Def and faithless. There are loads of upcoming artistes and DJ's who will be manning other stages at the festival. RV is looking forward to Glastonbury 2010. The festival began the day after Jimi Hendrix died in 1970.
