The Rakes confirm Glastonbury slot

Four-piece join an ever growing line-up

The Rakes have revealed that they will be playing this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The band have confirmed their addition to the ever growing line-up and revealed they are likely to perform on the Other Stage.

They join the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Bjork, The Who, Arcade Fire, Lily Allen and Hot Chip, who are all known to be playing this year’s event.

“There will be festivals, but the only one I can say for sure is Glastonbury,” frontman Alan Donohoe told XFM. “I love Glastonbury, it’s more hippy and fun than the others. It’s not certain yet but I’m pretty sure we’re playing on the second main stage.

“I’m not really a fan of The Who but I’m looking forward to seeing Arcade Fire and the Arctic Monkeys. It’s gonna be brilliant.”

The four-piece are due to release their new album ‘Ten New Messages’ on March 19.
