John Cooper Clarke and Phill Jupitus join Glastonbury Theatre & Circus line-up

The festival runs this year from June 24-29

Glastonbury Festival have announced new acts for their Theatre & Circus showcases.

Glastonbury runs at its traditional home of Worthy Farm from June 24-29, with the likes of John Cooper Clarke, Shappi Khorsandi, Doc Brown and Lee Nelson added to the Cabaret Tent. Meanwhile Phill Jupitus (under the alias of Porky The Poet) will perform on the Poetry & Words stage.

Two headline acts have so far been confirmed as Foo Fighters and Kanye West, with speculation recently over the identity of the artist joining them in headlining this year’s festival.

Michael Eavis recently hinted that the identity of the final Glastonbury headliner will be revealed on June 1, also appearing to imply that the headliner for the Sunday leg would be composed of two artists, rather than one. He also added that they will “most likely” be British and that Coldplay’s Chris Martin may be involved.

However, Emily Eavis later addressed her father’s comments via Twitter. Responding to a fan who asked “any truth to the rumours of a Sunday night charity super group arranged by Chris Martin?”, Eavis replied: “ah, don’t get confused by the two bands together story! We are announcing one band as headliner but a great penultimate too”.

Coldplay are 3/1 favourites to headline Glastonbury with bookmakers William Hill, though Emily Eavis has previously ruled them out of playing. Muse and AC/DC have concerts elsewhere on June 28, so will not be the final headliner.

Other artists confirmed as performing at Glastonbury include Alt-J, Florence And The Machine, The Maccabees, Suede, Jamie T, The Chemical Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Jungle, FKA Twigs, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Belle & Sebastian, The Vaccines, Super Furry Animals, Patti Smith, Hot Chip, Run The Jewels, Future Islands, Charli XCX, Peace and Circa Waves.
