Canadian band will follow Glastonbury headline show with appearance at The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston

Arcade Fire will DJ at London pub The Shacklewell Arms tomorrow night (July 2).

The band will make an appearance at the small venue in Dalston after Lust For Youth play live earlier in the same night. The band will appear under the name Windows 98.

Following last weekend’s triumphant Glastonbury headline set, Arcade Fire will perform at Hyde Park in London on Thursday (July 3).

Frontman Win Butler recently hailed Glastonbury Festival’s “purity”, saying organisers’ corporate stance is similar to that of his band. The Canadians headlined the Pyramid Stage for the first time in their career last week (June 27), taking to the stage on the first night of music at this year’s festival.

Speaking to NME after the band had finished their Friday night set, Butler said: “Glastonbury is like the ultimate, in terms of not being a corporate weird thing, it’s still got this purity to it which is very in line with how our band thinks about music.”

Arcade Fire brought fireworks to what frontman Win Butler described from the stage as one of “the most incredible” of all the “unbelievable” things that have happened to the band in their career. Click here to read a full set report and see the band’s setlist from the night.
