Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno has said that he thinks it's 'great' that The Black Keys are playing before them on the Pyramid Stage before them on Sunday night (June 29) at Glastonbury.

Speaking to NME in the Glastonbury preview issue, which is on sale now and available digitally, Pizzorno commented: "I think it's great that they're going on before us. That'll be great to get the crowd going. It's a nice contrast between very traditional rock to what future rock'n'roll sounds like."

He added that the band are unlikely to be making a special appearances over the weekend, as they'll be coming in after a gig in France on Saturday evening. "We're playing France the night before, so we're literally getting in there in the afternoon. You might find us in a field, but you won't find us DJing," he stated.

Glastonbury 2014 is now officially open. The gates to the festival opened at 8am this morning (June 25), with queues of people leading to the Worthy Farm site in Pilton, Somerset.

Speaking about what punters can expect on the very first day of the event, Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis told NME: "Wednesday is just a day to arrive, to settle in, to find things. There will be things happening that you can see but there's not going to be any full-on gigs. It's just a time to get to know the site, especially if you haven't been before, to work out where you are, to navigate. It's quite good to arrive on the Wednesday and most people do. Last year 100,000 people arrived then."

Met Office officials have predicted that "thundery showers" could occur across the main three days of Glastonbury Festival this weekend. The weather forecast for the start of this week's Glastonbury looks set to consist of light rain on Thursday, progressing to heavy showers for the first full day of the event on Friday.

The full stage times for the event were revealed earlier this month. Information on the timings for the Pyramid Stage, Other Stage, West Holts Stage, The Park Stage, John Peel Stage, Acoustic Tent and Avalon Stage can be found here.
