Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming, Kamasi Washington and Roy Ayers among the jazz acts to appear at Glastonbury
Glastonbury this year features some of the most consistently hyped new generation bands around at the moment plus the odd golden oldie thrown in for good measure. The Comet Is Coming play on the Friday like a lot of the jazz acts taking to the West Holts stage. Ezra Collective appear there on the Saturday while on the Sunday it is the turn of Kamasi Washington and token older jazz legend Roy Ayers plus novelty booking Jeff Goldblum booked for his movie star power presumably and not for his really pretty wack piano playing! Steam Down play the Park Stage on the Friday, Sons of Kemet also are on the Park Stage on the Saturday. Madeleine Peyroux and the Hackney Colliery Band can also be spotted playing the Acoustic Stage both on the Sunday. The Pussy Parlure stage, who knew?, also has a few new jazz acts featuring with Joe Armon Jones, Poppy Ajudha and Emma-Jean Thackray’s Walrus shoehorned in on the Friday. Glastonbury website.
