Foals have promised that their forthcoming summer festival headline slots will be "bigger" than ever.

The Oxford band will top the bill at both Parklife and Bestival this summer, having made their major festival headline debut at Latitude last year (2013).

The frontman of the Oxford band, who will headline this year's Bestival and Parklife Weekender festivals.

Speaking to Gigwise, frontman Yannis Philippakis said: "I've never been to Parklife before, but we've played Bestival two times and that was amazing. It's also such a prestigious line-up and to be alongside OutKast is weird, as obviously they're on a different level from us - but it'll be fun. We'll bring the party on Saturday."

When asked how the shows will differ from their festival appearances last year, Yannis replied: "There will be bigger production stuff and we'll probably play some different songs. Or we might choose to play all the same songs as usual, but in a different order. We might mix it up a little and throw some pyro in there too, although we haven't really thought about the details yet."

Foals are currently finishing up a UK tour and will two huge London shows at Alexandra Palace on February tonight and tomorrow (February 14 and 15).
