With the momentum of Playing For Change building around the world since the release of Hear Music — two-disc CD/DVD Playing For Change – Songs Around the World, the project has taken another leap forward. After a Top 10 debut on Billboard Pop Chart in the US and a strong start throughout Europe, including a top 20 chart position in Spain, the Playing For Change band has been confirmed to headline the Jazz/World stage at Glastonbury Festival in the UK on Saturday, June 27, one of the three major open air stages with a crowd capacity of approximately 25,000 people. Word of mouth spread among other Glastonbury acts that Playing For Change was confirmed on the bill and several musicians expressed interest in joining the band on stage. This resulted in Gabrialla Cilmi, Tinariwen, The Magic Numbers, Vusi Mahlasela and Baba Maal confirmed to make guest appearances with the band at Glastonbury!
We hope that all our friends and fans that are in the neighborhood will join us at Glastonbury on Saturday, for what will be an unforgettable night of music and inspiration from around the world.
