As the festival season draws ever closer, this is a great time to think ahead to exciting events like Glastonbury 2015.

This world famous festival first happened in 1970 and is now classed as the biggest Greenfield festival on the planet. So what can we expect from this year's event? Well, Glastonbury 2015 runs from Wednesday the 24th of June through to Monday the 29th. 

This is going to be one of the best music festivals of the year without doubt. The headliners for the different nights are all top class and each of these nights is sure to be fantastic in one way or another. It just comes down to whether you prefer grungy rock from Dave Grohl's Foo Fighters on Friday, modern rap from Kanye West on Saturday or Sunday's classic rock from The Who. 

Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters are sure to rock the place out on Friday and others big acts signed up to perform here on the Friday include The Charlatans, Mark Ronson, The Vaccines and Hot Chip. Across in the different stages you will find the likes of Basement Bish, Blues Kitchen DJs, Mister Tolley and Akua Naru. Meanwhile, the Acoustics Tent has Gentleman Visitor and Stornoway lined up. 

The Saturday showcase is equally full of top class performers as well as up and coming new names. Kanye West is a cert to put on a spectacular show for the crowd and you never know what to expect with this guy. You are also likely to be familiar with Van Morrison and The Family Stone among others. This latter group comes on after George Clinton so if funk is your thing then get along to the West Holts Stage for this.  Other acts to look out for are Neville Staples, Mele, Lazy Habits and The Beatbox Collective.

On Sunday the line up is pretty incredible. For example, on the Pyramid Stage we have The Who, Paul Weller and Lionel Richie to look forward to. As the headline act, we can expect The Who to pump out some of their enduring hits that never seem to lose their edge over the years. Also due to appear are The Chemical Brothers, Belle & Sebastian and Jamie T. Monkey Marc, Jo Girl and Cumbia All Stars are among the many other names on the list for this day. In fact, Cumbia All Stars are joined by El Hijo de la Cumbia, so there is a double treat if you like this style of music.     

Don't think that it just about music at Glastonbury 2015. The other main attractions here include comedy acts, theatre and circus shows. It is the kind of event where you can enjoy the entertainment all day long without getting bored. 

There are a number of ways of getting from London to Glastonbury. By car, by coach and by trains are among the most popular methods.
