Massive Attack to play Glastonbury 2008
Massive Attack will headline the second stage at this year’s Glastonbury festival, NME.COM has discovered.

The Bristol collective will return to the festival (June 27-29), along with Hot Chip, who are also believed to be appearing on the Other Stage.

Elbow, meanwhile, have confirmed themselves that they are playing this year’s event, announcing it from the stage during their gig at London’s Porchester Hall last night (February 12).

The bands join headliners Kings Of Leon, Jay-Z and The Verve, who were officially confirmed to top the Pyramid Stage last week.

Other confirmed acts include Neil Diamond, CSS, Leonard Cohen and British Sea Power.
