Glastonbury Festival Announces Line-Up

Legendary GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL have announced KASABIAN as their Sunday headliner. The Leicester band will join Arcade Fire in topping the Worthy Park event; with the Canadian outfit closing the festivals Friday night.

The line-up announcement saw 86 bands added to the three day event; including The 1975, Pixies, Blondie, Paolo Nutini, Kodaline, Manic Street Preachers and Elbow. The new bands join Warpaint, Dolly Parton, Lana Del Ray and The Black Keys for the Somerset event which takes place between 27 and 29 June.

Tickets went on sale to those who registered earlier this year; with demand proving too high to satisfy. However, Glastonbury Festival will be re-releasing tickets later this month of those who have not made their final payments.
