Gaz's Rocket Lounge is a stage in Shangri-La, a late night area of Glastonbury, and is curated and hosted by Gaz Mayall of Gaz's Rockin Blues and The Trojans fame. Mayall made this statement about the stage: "Get down to the real nitty gritty. Hang out with the babes and freaks. Flip out to the crazy and cool sounds that have been rocking’ the 50’s and 60’s to now. Keeping the old new and the new hot. The slickest cocktail lounge and rockingest club across the tracks. Spinning pure vinyl with a dash of Shellac. All the stars and more... All night long...Come and get it…"


The Friday night (June 27) headliners at the Rocket Lounge will be The Delegators, and the Saturday (28) night headliners will be The Trojans. Playing across the Thursday to Sunday on the Rocket Stage will be The Downsetters, Jump 66, The Black Kat Boppers, The Fat 45s, High Town Crows, Son of Dave, Railroad Bill, The Melbourne Ska Ochestra, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing and Pronghorn. Trad folk-rock outfit Seven Little Sisters have also been confirmed to play everyday of the four day bill.

Joining them for DJ sets across the festival will be: Gaz Mayall, Baby Soul, Mr Mass, Heavy Sugar and Rockaphonic.


Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition Finals in Pilton on Friday night also saw eight acts competing for a number of top prizes. The winners, Italian duo M+A walked away with £5,000 of prize money, thanks in part to award partners PRS for Music Foundation, plus a slot on one of the Festival's main stages. The two runners-up were four-piece The Black Tambourines and songstress Izzy Bizu, both awarded a £2,500 prize.

Many of the acts who competed in last night's competition are likely to be be given the chance to perform on a stage somewhere at this summer's Glastonbury Festival. Listen to all eight of the shortlisted finalists in the Soundcloud player below.



Last Friday more than 80 new acts were added to the Glastonbury Festival line-up, including Pixies, Elbow, Jurassic 5, Mogwai, M.I.A., Jake Bugg, Bryan Ferry and Sunday night headliners Kasabian.

Glastonbury Festival 2014 takes place from 25-29 June on Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.

Tickets to Glastonbury Festival 2014 sold out in record time last year, beating the one hour and 40 minute sale period set previously.

Registration has re-opened for the Glastonbury Festival ticket process, allowing fans a limited window of time to register their details before the 2014 Glastonbury ticket resale.

The first opportunity to book tickets in the resale will be for those who choose to travel to Glastonbury Festival by coach with ticket and coach packages, starting from £240, going on sale at 7pm on Thursday, 24 April. 15,000 originally went on sale back in October last year so it's expected that the tickets available in the resale will be little more than 1,000.

Then will follow a resale of any unwanted general admission tickets three days later, at 9am on Sunday, 27 April. These tickets, as in the original sale back in October, will cost £210 plus a £5 booking fee (with postage by Royal Mail Special Delivery charged at £7 per order). Originally 120,000 tickets went on sale and sold out in record time last year. The resale on Sunday April 27 is expected to be extremely popular and, even if more tickets are available than in the coach packages sale, demand is expected to easily outstrip supply.

Follow Virtual Festivals on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest Glastonbury news, rumours and ticket announcements. We'll be live on social media for both of the resale ticket releases so stay tuned in for information on the latest progress with the sale of tickets.
