Paul Heaton And Jacqui Abbott to headline Glastonbury’s Acoustic Stage

Paul Heaton And Jacqui Abbott

Paul Heaton And Jacqui Abbott were at number one in the UK in 2020 with Manchester Calling.

Paul Heaton And Jacqui Abbott, The Waterboys and Suzanne Vega have been revealed as the Acoustic Stage headliners at Glastonbury this year – a stage which organisers describe as, ‘a festival within a festival’.

“For the last thirty years or so, people have been trooping up to the hill to the haven of the Acoustic field,” a statement on the event’s official website reads.

“The crowds visit the Acoustic Stage to either avoid the rain and, maybe even, the sun – in the sanctuary of super-duper circus tent – or, to hear acoustic, song-based music. Mostly it’s blues, folk, contemporary or country music, but…it’s not always played on acoustic instruments.”

“The Acoustic Stage has had the pleasure to welcome Ray Davies, Christy Moore, Joan Baez, Jackson Browne, The Waterboys, Robert Plant, The Moody Blues featuring… Michael Eavis, John Prine, Art Garfunkel, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Keane and The Bootleg Beatles, amongst many others.”
