Emily Eavis confirms Disclosure will play 'big' slot at Glastonbury 2014
Festival organiser confirms that 'Settle' duo will appear at Worthy Farm in June
Festival organiser Emily Eavis revealed the news to NME at last night's NME Awards, with Austin, Texas. Confirming that the sibling duo, who released the hugely successful album 'Settle' in 2013, will appear, Eavis also said she expects them to play a "big" slot.
Speaking to NME, Eavis said: "We're sitting with Disclosure and we can say that they'll be back, which is brilliant for us because they had an amazing year last year and they are one of the greatest British acts at the moment. So that's exciting too, so you can see them in a big slot. Somewhere."
Blondie also announced their scheduled Glastonbury appearance at last night's NME Awards with Austin, Texas while both Dolly Parton and organiser Emily Eavis have confirmed that the 'Jolene' singer will appear at Worthy Farm this year.
Debbie Harry revealed that Blondie will be at the festival, saying: "We just heard today – we’re going to be doing Glastonbury." They join headliners Arcade Fire, Lily Allen, Warpaint and Stanton Warriors on the list of artists due to perform at this year's festival, which takes place between June 25-29.
Tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2014 sold out in record time after going on sale on October 6. 120,000 tickets were snapped up in one hour and 27 minutes, beating last year's record of one hour and 40 minutes. Eavis revealed that over one million people had registered for tickets for next year's event.
