One of Groove Armada‘s forthcoming Glastonbury Festival DJ sets has been cancelled due to crowd concerns.

The band were due to play at the Stonebridge Bar this Thursday (June 27), B2B with Eats Everything at Levels on Saturday (June 29) and the Glade on Sunday (June 30).

But their first show has now been pulled following concerns over huge numbers turning up.

A statement from the festival said: “To ensure that @GrooveArmada’s many fans can enjoy the duo’s DJ sets at this year’s Festival, their performance in the lower-capacity Stonebridge Bar on Thursday night can now not take place.

“Instead, we encourage you to take in their sets at the larger capacity Glade on Sunday at 8.30pm and B2B with Eats Everything at Levels on Saturday at 6pm. Thank you for your understanding.”

Alongside Groove Armada, the Glade will also see performances from Faithless, Fatboy Slim, Camelphat and D:Ream, Goldie Live, Chris Stussy, Mall Grab, Enzo Siragusa Gok Wan, Desiree, Logic1000, Kurupt FM and more.

Dua LipaColdplay and SZA have been confirmed as headlining the iconic Pyramid Stage this summer, while Shania Twain performs in the legends slot on the Sunday.

Coldplay and Dua Lipa’s sets are also due to be livestreamed on this week – making them the first ever to be broadcast globally on the website.

Other acts set to take to the stage this year include Shania TwainLCD SoundsystemLittle SimzThe NationalAvril LavigneThe Last Dinner PartyJungleJusticeBloc PartyFontaines D.C.Yard ActArlo Parks and Gossip.

In other recent Glastonbury news, it’s likely that the festival will be taking a year off in 2026.

Speaking on the BBC’s Sidetracked podcast, Emily Eavis recently confirmed that she was thinking of having a fallow year for the Worthy Farm bash in two years time. The last time the festival had an official fallow year was in 2018.

“The fallow year is important because it gives the land a rest, and it gives the cows a chance to stay out for longer and reclaim their land,” she said.

Meanwhile, the forecast for 2024 – kicking off this week – is looking quite promising.
