The Glastonbury Warm-up Party: Tickets onsale & Selling fast!
05 June 2003
The Dome, Tufnell Park, London - Monday, 23 June, 7pm 'till late!
For one night
only, Virtual Festivals presents the ultimate warm-up for the best festival in the world... ever. This is no more and no less
than a big celebration of the start of Glastonbury week. So whether you want to meet kindred spirits or drink
them, or watch (and mingle with) some excellent big name bands and DJ's, it's going to be quite a night!
Members of Alabama 3 will be performing as side project 'The Constables' (heavy emphasis on the first syllable - led by Rantin' Richie, supported on bass by Alabamas frontman Larry Love, and original A3 guitarist Rob Bailey). Then, the band will take to the decks, DJing into the small hours, to round off an impressive bill of Glastonbury faves, past and present.
We have also lined up some very special guests and celebrities to perform live and DJ, but for contractual reasons, we cannot yet reveal their names. One has previously headlined the Pyramid Stage though!
"Virtually Glastonbury" aims to capture as much of the essence of Glastonbury as possible. The evening will be divided into a number of areas corresponding to parts of the festival: New Bands, Acoustic, Avalon, Dance, Left Field and Pyramid. In addition, there will a selection of festival-style market stalls and a strict dress code: FESTIVAL. Check out our Characters Gallery for ideas!
So if you're going to Glasto, or even if you're not, it's gonna be one head trippin', foot stompin' night of fun and frolics!
