Are These The Ten Biggest Clashes At Glastonbury Festival 2017?

The full Glasto line-up and stage times have been unveiled, so now’s the time to start planning your musical journey…

Ricky Wilson and Jeremy Corbyn

And here’s where the anguish, stress and compromise start for this year’s festival.

Now that we know exactly who’s playing and when at Glastonbury 2017 , some serious choices need to be made before you head off to Worthy Farm this year. Here are just a few of the ones that caught the eye of Radio X…

1. RADIOHEAD Vs THE FLAMING LIPS

Glastonbury Clash Finder

The majesty of OK Computer, or Wayne Coyne in a big hamster ball? The two alt.rock legends play at the same time on the Friday - the ‘Head on the Pyramid and the Lips on the Park stage.

2. BIFFY CLYRO VS COURTEENERS

Glastonbury Clash Finder

Liam Fray and co finish their Other Stage set halfway through The Biff’s on the main stage on Sunday night. You could just about make both of them.

3. HACIENDA CLASSICAL VS THE PRETENDERS

Glastonbury Clash Finder

If you’re an early bird on Friday, do you kick off the festival proper with banging rave classics done orchestrally, or Chrissie Hynde’s portfolio of hits?

4. HAIM VS CHIC

Glastonbury Clash Finder

Blissed out LA pop, or the peerless funk of Nile Rodgers? Too many good times, all at once on Sunday evening.

5. KAISER CHIEFS VS JEREMY CORBYN

 Ricky Wilson and Jeremy Corbyn

Well, here's a poser. Do you see no-nonsense indie rock'n'roll with Ricky Wilson at The Other Stage at 4.15 on Saturday afternoon, or do you head to the Pyramid Stage to witness the never-to-be-repeated moment when the Leader Of The Opposition warms up for Run The Jewels? It could be an era-defining moment. And Jezza might be interesting, too.

6. FOO FIGHTERS VS GOLDIE’S RAVE SET

Glastonbury Clash Finder

For Saturday night, do you stick to the rock anthems, or head back for the jungle pioneer’s “92-92 Rave Set” at Arcadia ‘neath the giant spider? That’s a difficult choice for one Glastonbury punter.

7. SCOUTING FOR GIRLS VS ED SHEERAN

Glastonbury Clash Finder

It’s a battle of the pop giants! Ed headlines the main stage, while SFG get intimate at the Avalon stage on Sunday.

8. THE XX VS FUTURE ISLANDS

Glastonbury Clash Finder

Do you want to go lo-fi, or all wobbly-limbed? Both bands start at 19.30 on Friday: the British on the Pyramid, while the Americans take up residence on the Park stage.

9. BLOSSOMS VS NOTHING BUT THIEVES

Glastonbury Clash Finder

Stockport Vs Southend. Which big new British rock band do you want to wave a flag at on Friday afternoon?

10. DIZZEE RASCAL VS STATUS QUO (ACOUSTIC)

Glastonbury Clash Finder

Look, it’s entirely possible you could like both. And they’re on at the same time, topping the bill on Friday at West Holts and the Acoustic stages respectively.
