This will be the third time UK dub music pioneers, Zion Train have played in Glastonbury, whereas BlackBud are well on their way to superstardom since winning a Battle of the Bands competition here last year.
Local band BlackBud is made up of Joe (guitar and vox), Adam (bass) and Sam (drums).

A fusion of funk, blues and reggae, their music has been described as "driving funk-blues with flowing songs of soulful introspection...unmissable" by Decode Magazine.
After winning two local Battle of the Bands competitions in Frome and Pilton, BlackBud played both on the Avalon Stage and in the New Band Tent at this year's Glastonbury.
We managed to catch up with them backstage at Glasto 2004. You can read and listen to them chatting about their win, and their Glasto experience, by clicking on the link at the top of this page.
Since then, BlackBud haven't stopped. They signed a record deal earlier this year and played several festivals in the summer including Guilfest and Ashton Court.
Michael Eavis invited them to play at the Pilton Party in August alongside Keane, Elbow, The Subways and local band Death Before Dishonour.
They've also appeared several times on the BBC's digital radio station 6 Music, with both Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe, as well as on BBC Radio Bristol.
If that's not enough, more recently they've been playing with the likes of Pete Doherty's Babyshambles, and touring Spain with Hope of the States. Nice work, if you can get it!
Playing alternative and reggae, as well as dub, Zion Train's members are Perch (live dub mixing), Molara (voice), Tench, Cod (melodica), Hake (trumpet), and Forkbeard (trombone).
|Dub music pioneers, Zion Train|
They were formed in 1990 and have been a prolific group since then, producing everything from music to magazines, CD-ROMs to internet sites to sound systems.
Releasing the world's first promotional dub music video for their Get Ready single in 1995, they've continued to produce quality dub, electronic, experimental drum and space, and world dance music on their own Universal Egg label.
Zion Train also have two studios: one run by Perch in Cologne, Germany and one run by Cod in South Wales.
They've recorded eight albums in total, the most recent of which is Original Sounds of the Zion, released in 2002.
A mixture of melodic songs, dance floor beats and deep dub, this album is currently being remixed and is due out soon.
