Florence And The Machine singer Florence Welch has revealed she wants to make her forthcoming appearance at Glastonbury special, because she won't be playing at the festival again for a while.

In an interview you can read in full in this week's issue of NME, Welch hinted that her set will include a host of extra musicians.

"We've been planning it for a while now, because it was always the one where we were asking, 'Did we want to bring the choir, the strings?' The whole thing has got so much bigger since the last time I played," she explained.

"We probably won't play Glastonbury the year after this, so we really want to go out with a bang!"

Florence And The Machine are set to play the Other Stage on Friday (June 25).

NME will be coming live from Glastonbury throughout the weekend. Head to NME.COM/glastonbury for the latest festival news.
