If you’re one of the lucky ones going to Glasto this year you will currently be in the middle of planning, packing and making sure you have enough beer and cider to last the weekend.

It’s also time to start working out which of the hundreds of bands playing over Glastonbury weekend you are going to watch.

If you haven’t been to the festival before, be warned – Worthy Farm is huge and there is a dizzying array of entertainment on offer.

We all know about the headliners and other big names coming to Glasto 2024, Coldplay make another appearance, SZA will close the Pyramid on Sunday and Dua Lipa will have everyone dancing on Friday night.

But true Scousers will want to make sure they support our local artists.

Here are seven acts Scousers shouldn’t miss at Glastonbury this year.

Pixey

Friday, 7.30pm BBC Introducing

Emerging performer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Pixey grew up in Parbold, near Ormskirk before moving to Liverpool for school and remaining there and starting her music career.

Single Just Move was written and recorded in her bedroom. She then signed signed to Chess Club – a label famed for breaking new talent, and this is her Glasto debut.

She has drawn attention from BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and will be playing the BBC Introducing tent on Friday night at 7.30pm. 

Pixey is certainly excited about her Glastonbury appearance, posting on social media: “I cannot believe I’m typing this I’M PLAYING GLASTONBURY 2024. When I say this has been a childhood dream of mine I’m not exaggerating, every interview Glastonbury has always been my dream festival.”

Bootleg Beatles

We know, they’re not strictly speaking from Liverpool, but suspend reality for a couple of hours and enjoy the tunes of The Beatles with the best tribute act to the fab four in the world.

Twist and shout to Twist and Shout, belt out Let It Be and sing your heart out to Hey Jude while you hug a stranger in what is sure to be a massive Friday night crowd.

Perfect if you’re not really into Dua Lipa.

Jamie Webster

Saturday, 11.45am, The Other Stage

Having played the Left Field tent and Avalon in the last two years, the Scouse troubadour has been elevated to The Other Stage for Glastonbury 2024.

It’s just reward for the following Webster has built up across the country with his catchy tunes and meaningful lyrics, capturing the mood of a generation beyond his original football fan crowd.

It’s an early start on Saturday but believe us when we tell you it will be the best way to start your day at the greatest festival in the world, with one of the most exciting live acts around.

CamelPhat

Saturday night, 12.30am, Glade

The platinum selling Scouse dance duo will be bringing the tunes to the Glade on Saturday night.

Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala have been warming up for Glasto with sets around the world, including Ibiza where a certain Sean Dyche was in the crowd. We know the Everton boss is a Glasto fan so you might spot him enjoying the tunes.

The Zutons

Sunday, 11.15am, The Other Stage

What a comeback the Zutons have had this year. Their first album in 16 years has been co-produced by fellow Scouse musician Ian Broudie of the Lightening Seeds and guitar legend Nile Rodgers.

Expect to hear new songs like Creeping on the Dancefloor and The Big Decider, as well as old favourites like You Will You Won’t and of course Valerie. What better way to ease into the last day of the festival?

The K’s

Sunday, 12.30pm, Woodsies

Okay, they’re not really Scousers but Liverpool has taken this band from Earlestown near Newton Le Willows to its heart.

The K’s now have eight singles under their belt, with their debut single Sarajevo being streamed more than three million times on Spotify.

Head straight over to Woodsies from the Other Stage on Sunday after The Zutons to see the lads in action. It won’t be a wasted journey.

The Farm

Sunday, 7.45pm, Left Field

It’s hard to believe it but this will be the first time The Farm have played Glastonbury.

So prepare to get your tired legs dancing to Groovy Train and for a big singalong moment to Altogether Now in the Left Field tent on Sunday evening.

But it won’t be all 1990s classics. The band have been busy writing and recording new tunes over the last 18 months and singles Feel the Love and Let the Music Take Control are really catchy songs with clever and relevant lyrics. This is one Scouse Glasto performance not to be missed.
