Rodrigo y Gabriela on the Pyramid stage
If you’ve never given this metal-loving, animal-rights supporting, vegan music duo a listen then you’re in line for a real treat this Glasto.
As much entertainers as musicians their live shows are legendary as their three live albums would testify. Eschewing any lazy journalist’s genre-based classification Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela’s output spans countless styles from rock and heavy metal to flamenco and jazz, all brought together in a unique fusion.
Avid self-starters Rodrigo y Gabriela’s success is built on a relentless work ethic and the building of a loyal following through old-fashioned gigging. Collaborations on the soundtracks for Pirates of the Caribbean in 2011 and Puss in Boots, the Shrek prequel, has brought them popular success while remaining true to their innovative roots.
Go expecting Stairway to Heaven and Metallica's Orion rather than classical guitar strumming but with these two there are no certainties.
