This weekend wrap takes you across the pond, where so much is happening in the UK, it barely fits squarely inside one weekend! The good news for you is, you don’t have to spend money for that plane ticket and hotel, just kick back with TuneIn wherever you are enjoy the full weekend’s excitement from Merry Ol’ England.
The premier music event in the world kicks off today on Worthy Farm in Pilton as the 2011 Glastonbury Festival gets underway. The bill is completely and utterly insane when it comes right down to it: Coldplay, U2, Beyonce, BB King, Morrissey, Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes, Big Boi, Queens of the Stone Age, ::deep breath::, Lykke Li, Suzanne Vega, Flogging Molly, Chumbawamba (ed. Chumbawamba?), Billy Bragg – and THAT barely scratches the surface. Worthy FM is the official station of the festival and they are broadcasting from the festival grounds 24 hours a day all weekend long. Plus, BBC 6 Music will be offering highlights from the stage and around the grounds all weekend. Don’t miss this incredible weekend of music!
And because, apparently, that wasn’t enough music for the UK this weekend (I mean, really, how spoiled can you be?!), Hard Rock Calling is also taking place in Hyde Park featuring our boys from New Jersey, Bon Jovi. Absolute Radio will have their set starting at 7pm BST/2pm ET/11am PT on Saturday.
It will be easy to be on music overload this weekend, for sure, so you also have the option of checking out one of the world’s foremost sporting events as The 125th Championships, Wimbledon also see middle round play on Saturday. Barring more rain, they’ll be off for Middle Sunday, of course, but you can follow the action and highlights all weekend long with Radio Wimbledon.
