Taking place at Worthy Farm June 22-26, released the “first chunk” of its 2016 lineup today. The seemingly infinite list of names also includes Ronnie Spector, , Savages, Underworld, James Blake, Floating Points, Art Garfunkel, Chvrches, Ezra Furman, Kurt Vile, Mercury Rev, Band Of Horses, Cyndi Lauper, Saint Etienne and many, many others.

Although daily lineups haven’t yet been announced, Glastonbury officials have announced a few specific performances, including Adele’s June 25 appearance.

Tickets for this year’s Glastonbury sold out almost as soon as they went on sale in 2015.  However, organizers are saying fans might have a second chance during an upcoming re-sale.

“There will be a re-sale but unfortunately, as ever, it’s not going to be massive,” organizer Emily Eavis said, according to London’s Metro paper.  “It’ll probably be a few low thousand – a couple thousand, something like that.  That will be in April.  We’re really hoping we’ll get some line-up out there before then but we’ll have to just see.  There are lots of reasons why it’s tied up – contracts and that.”

The size of the re-sale will depend on just how many fans fail to pay what they owe for tickets.  According to the Metro, ticket holders “have from April 1 until April 7” to do so that the re-sale will probably take place after that.
