“Strummerville, Glastonbury – The spirit of legendary Clash guitarist and devoted Glastonburian, Joe Strummer, burns on at Strummerville, where organiser hope to light the weekends biggest campfire.
The spot – near Shngri-La field is where Joe used to host his own parties. Over the weekend bands including The Drums, Frank Turner and Lissie will drop by for acoustic sessions … everybody’s welcome.”
“What a weekend Coco had at Glastonbury, playing three shows in one day on Saturday!
It all started in the scenic surroundings of the Park Stage, which Coco opened on the second day of the festival and provided the perfect wake up call and cure for those with hangovers.
That was followed by an acoustic show at the chill and charge tent before Coco followed The Drums with an intimate set at Strummerville round a campfire just after midnight – the perfect end to the perfect day.
Look out for a blog from Coco about the festival coming soon…”
