James Murphy and Soulwax duo David and Stephen Dewaele will bring their Despacio soundsystem to Glastonbury 2014, it has been confirmed.

A statement on Glastonbury's official website has revealed that the former LCD Soundystem frontman will make his return to Worthy Farm later this month. He put together the huge new rig with John Klett, a veteran New York sound guru who helped build his former DFA studio.

"We’re very pleased to announce that James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem/DFA) and David & Stephen Dewaele (Soulwax/2manydjs) are bringing their incredible Despacio soundsystem to the Silver Hayes area at Glastonbury 2014," says the statement.

"Their mighty celebration of sound is being given its very own tent for the entire weekend, where they will deliver marathon sets each night. It has been a few years since they’ve all been at Glastonbury and they are returning in massive style, bringing with them a unique sonic experience like no other."

The Despacio soundsystem made its debut at the Manchester International Festival last year, with Murphy and Soulwax playing two gigs in December.
