Arcade Fire have been confirmed as the first headline act for Primavera Sound Festival 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.

The band, who recently released new album 'Reflektor', will perform at next year's festival, taking place on May 29-31 at Parc del Fòrum in Barcelona. Pitchfork, who will curate a stage at the festival, report that this will be the band's only 2014 date in Spain.

Arcade Fire will embark on a short UK tour later this month, taking in shows in Glasgow, London and Blackpool under the name The Reflektors. Dates in the UK confirmed are at London's Roundhouse on November 11 and 12,Blackpool's Empress Ballroom on November 27, and two nights at Glasgow's Barrowlands on November 15 and 16.

London Roundhouse (November 11/12)
Glasgow Barrowlands (15/16)
Blackpool Empress Ballroom (27)
