The Glastonbury Festival will be a mere sweet (and exhausting) memory by Monday, so on UKNY at 11 tonight, a few more of the artists and bands converging on Worthy Farm in Pilton, England this weekend, like M+A (winners of Glasto's Emerging Talent Competition), Lonely The Brave, Glass Animals (headed to New York on July 7) and The Rails (pictured). Also, other fine new releases from thoughtful singer-songwriter Emma Tricca, influential Glasgow rockers The Vaselines and much more.

FUV continues its live broadcast of the Clearwater Festival on Sunday afternoon and on UKNY tonight at 11, a preview of another great music and arts festival, Glastonbury. That iconic English extravaganza kicks off five days of sunny (or rain-soaked) bliss next week, June 25-29. We'll hear some of the disparate bands and artists making their way to Somerset's Worthy Farm this year, like Aquilo, Kasabian, Maya Jane Coles and The Rails, the folk rock duo of guitarist James Walbourne and Kami Thompson, who happens to be the daughter of Linda and Richard Thompson (who played at Clearwater earlier tonight). Also, brand new releases from the soulfully sleek Jessie Ware and rousing indie rockers Happyness.
