--- VOTE FOR GLASTONBURY!! As many of you know, All Star is on the list of artists that you can electronically vote for to play the Glastonbury Festival in the UK. Glastonbury Festival is a HUGE mainstream music festival in England! Bands like Blur, Radiohead, Pulp, Foo Fighters and many more have played it throughout the years. Our buddy Uncle Ron listed ASU as a choice on this year’s voting page. As Delirious? performed at this event last year, we’re hoping to continue the trend by getting other quality Christian rock acts on the bill. In order to be selected, we need everyone to surf over to the website listed below and vote for All Star United! Many of you have already cast your vote for the band, launching them into a list of 20 top-ranked contenders. THANKS for your help! In true political style, let’s rock the vote!
