Glastonbury Festival has released its full 2023 line-up, adding big names including Queens of the Stone Age, Rick Astley and Skepta to the poster.

They will join headliners Arctic Monkeys, Guns N’ Roses and Elton John at Worthy Farm in June, along with the likes of Lizzo, Lana Del Rey, Blondie and Loyle Carner.

The release of the full schedule allows festival-goers to pore through the line-up, single out must-see moments and identify any devastating clashes.

It also reveals the timings of the festival’s ever-anticipated secret sets, which always send rumours swirling across the farm.

The rumour mill has started up early this year though, thanks to the appearance of a mystery name in a prime Pyramid Stage slot on Friday.

A band called The ChurnUps are due to play from 6.15pm until 7.30pm, after Texas and before Royal Blood and Arctic Monkeys. The problem is no one has a clue who they are.

Who are The ChurnUps?

The ChurnUps don’t have any online footprint. No website. No social media. Nothing.

There’s no chance Glastonbury would have booked a band of nobodies to play a primetime Pyramid Stage slot, however, so it’s fair to assume this is either a code name for another band who want to keep their identities secret, or a supergroup.

Fans have speculated that it could be Pulp, as something that gets “churned up” becomes Pulp. The Britpop group have a rich Glastonbury history, having performed in 2005, as well as a raucously-received secret set in 2011.

However, drummer Nick Banks denied the rumours, posting on Twitter: “Though it’s very tempting to tease you lot again. I know nothing of the ‘ChurnUps’ band. OK?”

Another theory has questioned whether it could be members of Foo Fighters, as frontman Dave Grohl used to be in a band called Churn.

Foo Fighters do have a gap in their touring schedule over Glastonbury and are releasing their new album on 2 June, but Grohl did appear at the festival last year, being brought out by Paul McCartney during his headline set.

Blur and Suede have also been posited by fans, but we may have to wait until the festival itself to discover The ChurnUps’ true identity.
