BELLE PRACTISE

The group get ready for the festival with a show in their native Glasgow...

BELLE AND SEBASTIAN have announced a GLASTONBURY warm-up.

The group play on the second stage at the festival on June 30. It will be the first time Belle And Sebastian have played a UK festival since they curated the inaugural Bowlie festival, now trading under the All Tomorrow Parties banner, at Camber Sands in 1999.

Before that, they will play a date at the Glasgow Queen Margaret Union on June 27. Tickets are on sale now, priced £12. To buy, call the NME Ticketline on 0870 1 663 663.
