Glastonbury 2024: Stage highlights including the new  ‘Quadrophonic Soundsystem’

It’s almost time. 

In just 2 weeks Glastonbury will return and debut its first-ever quadrophonic sound system at the new ambient Tree Stage in the Woodsies area. Nestled under an oak canopy, the Tree Stage offers a five-day program featuring ambient music and immersive art.

The quadrophonic sound system surrounds listeners with music, creating a unique, immersive experience. Sound designer Jamie Harley describes it as being enveloped in a “bubble of sound,” with different sensations as you move around.

The Tree Stage will host performances from artists like The Orb, KMRU, Ana Roxanne, Max Cooper (with a live A/V set), and Jon Hopkins, who will present his new album ‘RITUAL’ in an exclusive playback experience.

Opening after the main stage headliners finish, the Tree Stage runs until 3:00 AM on Friday and Saturday, and until 2:30 AM on Sunday. Harley highlights the stage’s communal atmosphere and invites festival-goers to enjoy the cosmic experience late into the night.

This year the Genosys stage returns to Block9 and Shangri-La introduces Glastonbury’s inaugural South Asian space. 

The Dragonfly stage also boasts a diverse lineup featuring the likes of Amelie Lens, Andy C, and Fatboy Slim + The Glade stage welcomes Kurupt FM, CamelPhat, Mall Grab, and Faithless, among others.

Headlining the Genosys stage on Friday night is the incomparable Honey Dijon, joined by a stellar lineup that includes Ahadadream and Midland, meanwhile the Nowhere stage hosts a special celebration marking 25 years of Defected, featuring Gorgon City and Sam Divine.

Peggy Gou will also headline The Park stage on Saturday night.
