26 – 30 Jun 2014, Worthy Farm, Pilton
De La Soul
De La Soul
Fri 27 Jun 2014 Pyramid Stage
Expect many magic numbers

For many De La Soul are defined by their oustanding debut 1989 album 3 Feet High and Rising with its joyous wordplay and cutting-edge sampling all infused with a wit and humour that has largely gone missing in hip hop's evolution. While it is undoubtedly a genre-defining masterpiece it would be a shame and a gross mistake to see De La Soul's subsequent releases as somehow below par. Earlier this year they made their first six albums available for free for a 25 hour period and reported that this led to two million downloads.

Expect a rip-roaring ride through the trio's extensive back-catalogue and plenty of 'throw your hands up in the air and wave them like you just don't care' moments. Not to be missed.
