There’s great news for Shaa’ir + Func fans, as the project, initiated by vocalist Monica Dogra & Pentagram guitarist Randolph Correia , will be putting up a live act at Britain’s most prestigious live music festival – Glastonbury.
Having played gigs across the country, North America and Europe for almost a decade, they are renowned for putting up some of the most scintillating live acts with their unique and melodious mixture of electro, rock & folk.
Although this is not the first time Monica & Randolph have been part of Glastonbury, this will be the first instance the entire band takes up the stage at Worthy Farm, Pilton. Performing on the 2nd day of the festival, i.e 28th June, they will be sharing the stage with some of the biggest & most seasoned names in music – Massive Attack, Kasabian, Robert Plant. Disclosure & Arcade Fire, to name a few.
The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts is a five day music festival that takes place near Pilton, Somerset, England. In addition to contemporary music, the festival hosts dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret and other arts as well.

“This year we are taking our entire set up to the largest festival in the world for the first time. Before, with only half our set up, we made many blogs on Glastonbury’s top 20. Hopefully this year, we’ll make a few top 10’s! Not an easy thing to do with thousands of bands playing! No matter what though, we will definitely return from Glastonbury having lived a lifetime of experiences.” says Shaa’ir on the opportunity to perform at the massive festival.
Here are a few Shaair + Func tunes from their recent EP titled ‘RE:COVER’ :
That’s not all, the band is also scheduled to perform at Sakifo, a music festival hosted in Reunion Island, on the 24th of May.

The Festival will be held between 25 – 29th June this year, featuring an outstanding line – up spread out over 100 stages.
