Glastonbury: Line-up revealed for solar-powered Croissant Neuf

14th May 2019 Off By

The line-up poster has been revealed for Glastonbury’s Croissant Neuf, the Greenfields stage powered entirely by the sun.

Croissant Neuf pioneered the use of solar power at festivals, starting in 1987. Organisers said: “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!”

They promise “environmental displays, eco-friendly chats and workshops and oodles of Solar Powered music in our big top and on our Bandstand.”

The Croissant Neuf line-up boasts a mix of all genres with a wealth of local bands. Ed Sheerhan has previously appeared on the stage.

The Bandstand will dedicate between noon and 3pm each day to performances from talented BIMM students from Bristol, Brighton, London, Manchester and Ireland.

In 2010, over a thousand solar panels were installed on the roof of Worthy Farm’s cow shed. At the time it was the UK’s biggest private solar power plant.
