Bowjangles, Brass Funkeys, Ead Wood and many more added to this year’s Glastonbury Festival bill
Croissant Neuf is the eleventh major area / stage to announce its line-up for Glastonbury 2019, following the Left Field, Acoustic Stage, West Holts, The Glade, Shangri-La, Theatre & Circus, The Kidzfield, The Common, Silver Hayes and Field of Avalon‘s announcements over the past weeks.
Announcing the news on social media this evening (May 14), Glastonbury Festival organisers revealed the line-up poster for this year’s solar-powered Croissant Neuf.
Glastonbury 2019 will see Croissant Neuf span over the full five days of the Festival – The infamous solar powered Bandstand will host new talent on a daily basis, featuring students from the Bristol Institute of Modern Music. Open mic slots will feature a high-quality mix of musicians already on site and will continue throughout the day, ahead of the main stages kicking off on the Friday (June 28).
This year’s Croissant Neuf will feature performances from the likes of Bowjangles, Brass Funkeys, Ead Wood, Dry White Bones, Magic Bus and many more. See the full list below.
Showcasing the area’s strive to make this world a better place – Croissant Neuf continues its mission of subtly delivering the concepts of caring for our planet and ourselves through the medium of environmental displays, eco-friendly chats and workshops and oodles of Solar Powered music.
The statement from the festival reads: “Croissant Neuf pioneered the use of Solar Power at festivals, starting in 1987. Since then Renewable Energy has become commonplace and now, on some bright sunny days, the UK runs on over 50% clean, green energy on it!!
We began with 2 x 12v car amplifiers running off of a couple of car batteries and over the last 32 years our system’s capacity has increased exponentially. This year, we shall be showcasing a top of the range Nexo digital PA and full LED lighting system……….It’s so good even Michael Eavis still can’t believe that we can run it all off of the sun!
We don’t just run the venue and Bandstand from Solar Power……..All of our Production, Site lighting and Communications runs from it too! With help from Wind & Sun who are celebrating 35 years of providing wind and solar power music at Glastonbury Festival!”
