Glastonbury 2014: Festival releases latest line-up
Another 87 names have been added to this year’s Glastonbury Festival, including Kasabian, Jack White, Elbow and MIA.
The festival tweeted a link to a picture on its website, before Kasabian confirmed on their own Twitter feed that they are Sunday’s Pyramid Stage headliners and will close the festival.
The line-up also features Pixies, Jake Bugg, Robert Plant and James Blake.
Friday night headliners Arcade Fire and Dolly Parton were among those already confirmed to play the festival in June.
Other new acts announced include MGMT, Brian Ferry, Kelis, Metronomy and De La Soul.
Rudimental, Manic Street Preachers, London Grammar and Ed Sheeran are also set to play across more than 100 stages at the festival in Somerset from June 25 to June 29.
Saturday night’s Pyramid Stage headliner is still yet to be announced, although organizer Emily Eavis said there was definitely one in place.
“We’ve got it all booked, it was all confirmed a couple of weeks ago. We can’t give you that yet, just for contractual reasons, but it will be with you soon,” she said.
“The full lineup, the thousands and thousands of acts, will be with you in May,” Emily Eavis added.
“This is a few handpicked acts to give you a taster.”
Recently, acts such as Lana Del Rey and the Black Keys had confirmed their own appearances, joining Lily Allen, Disclosure, Blondie, Suzanne Vega and Warpaint on the bill.
In February, Dolly Parton said she was “incredibly excited” to be playing the Sunday afternoon “legend slot” on the Pyramid Stage, following last year’s appearance from her friend and contemporary Kenny Rogers.
White Stripes star Jack White is set to play an exclusive UK festival date at Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage.
Tickets for this year’s Glastonbury Festival sold out in just one hour and 27 minutes in October, despite “technical difficulties” with online ticketing site See Tickets.
Festival goers who have paid their deposit have until just before midnight on Monday, April 7, to pay their balance. Remaining tickets go on resale on April 24 for coach packages and April 27 for standard tickets.
