Confidence Man Leads the Australian Charge at Glastonbury Festival 2024

Confidence Man Leads the Australian Charge at Glastonbury Festival 2024

Confidence Man are getting an upgrade at Glastonbury Festival 2024.

Led by Janet Planet and Sugar Bones, the Brisbane electronic-pop outfit secure a spot on the Other Stage, a step up from their 2022 performance at Glasto’s The Park Stage, in support of the TILT album. The floor-fillers played a DJ set at last year’s edition.

Confidence Man is booked for a run of dates across the U.K., Europe, and North America this year, and will dash home this July for a performance at Splendour in the Grass in Byron Bay.

The grandaddy of European music festivals, Glastonbury is a handy measuring stick of the world’s biggest contemporary music acts, from across all genres.

This year is no different, with the likes of Dua Lipa, Coldplay, SZA and Shania Twain headlining the Pyramid Stage, plus Afrobeats star Burna Boy, British hip-hop faves D-Block Europe, and U.S. pop legend Cyndi Lauper among the scores of confirmed performers. 

In a typical year, at least one act from the land Down Under could be expected to make the long haul to the Eavis’ dairy farm in Somerset, south west England.

The Aussie wave at Glasto 2023 included Fanny Lumsden, Teskey Brothers and Xavier Rudd, with ARIA Hall of Famers Crowded House, two-time Australian Music Prize winner Sampa The Great, Courtney Barnett, and Amyl and the Sniffers among the antipodeans representing in 2022.

This year’s fest will once again coincide with the summer solstice, June 16-20, and should gather some 210,000 partygoers – a mass of people greater than the population of Norwich.

Many more acts and attractions for the 2024 show are still to be announced, organisers insist.

Good luck if you’re chasing a ticket.

It was a sell-out before the lineup was announced Thursday, though a resale of cancelled and returned tickets will take place next month.
