Johnny Depp, Liam Gallagher added to Glastonbury line-up

Johnny Depp, Liam Gallagher added to Glastonbury line-up

Johnny Depp isn’t only an actor, he is a great musician whose rock band is well-known in Hollywood and its vicinities. On Monday, the actor, another musician, Liam Gallagher, and the US astronaut Mike Massimino have been added to Glastonbury line-up.

The organisers of 2017 Glastonbury festival announced the line-uppers of the musical event – NASA astronaut will appear at the festival, which is being headlined by Radiohead, Ed Sheeran and Foo Fighters.

This year’s festival will be fantastic, Johnny Depp will be the guest of honour at a new drive-in movie area called Cineramageddon, while Gallagher will sing on The Other Stage.

Depp will give a short speech, in which the Hollywood A-lister and principal pirate introduce his favourite film choices. The actor has a long screen life, he played many characters, so throughout the night on 22 June, the public will not have time to yawn.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star’s film choices include Withnail and I, of which Depp says:

“No film has ever made me laugh more, or filled me with so much joy and dread.”

Among his other selections are his own films Dead Man, which he describes as “an epic visual poem”, and The Libertine, which he is very “proud” of and says: “This is one of those films that got lost in the shuffle.”

Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran are headlining this year’s event. The astonaut and engineer Mike Massimino will give a talk at the festival. Prior to 2017, the organisers of Glastonbury never invited people from NASA like astronauts and engineers.
