Glastonbury has unveiled two brand new venues and the line-up for the Park area this year, promising to "inspire wonder and ignite delight" for festivalgoers. "Queer wonderland" Scissors and The Wishing Well "where dreams are made" will be making their Glasto debut at the Park area this year.

Festival organisers announced the new venues on X, writing: "Up at The Park, high over the Festival site, this vibrant home of eclectic fabulousness returns for 2024 with another line-up of sizzling acts as well as a few new treats to inspire wonder and ignite delight!”.

The Park area will host a treasure trove of artists this year, including Dexys Midnight Runners, London Grammar, Aurora, Fontaines D.C., and many more. Meanwhile, Sophie Ellis-Bextor (Murder on the Dancefloor, Groovejet) will be hosting a Q&A at Scissors.

Glasto organisers describe Scissors as "an utterly delicious femme-queer venue where anything can (and does!) happen. Head to Scissors for a cut, or just come along to enjoy some of the daily talks, then slip out the back to discover a queer wonderland.

"Relax in the beer garden and play pool, or catch a movie in Flick Shack. With nightfall comes a twilight roster filling Kiki’s nightclub, where kaleidoscopic walls will keep you dancing 'til dawn."

The Wishing Well will also be making a splash: "[The Wishing Well] is a place in which to ignite your deepest desires and unfurl your wildest wishes. Re-awaken all that inspires you, because at The Wishing Well – where dreams are made – hope springs eternal!".

Returning venue Stonebridge Bar promises to leave visitors star-struck, with DJ sets performed by Idris Elba, Groove Armada, and Jarvis Cocker (of Pulp fame). It's not everyday you're at a party where a superstar is setting the mood!

Glastonbury Festival will held from Wednesday, 26 June to Sunday, 30 June this year. You can watch highlights from the festival on BBC One, Two, Three and Four.
