The Dead Weather will play a Pyramid Stage slot at this year's Glastonbury festival.

The announcement was made on the festival's official website, Glastonburyfestivals.co.uk. The band will play on the Saturday (June 26) of the Somerset event which takes place on June 25-27.

Festival organiser Emily Eavis said: "We're always honoured to have Jack White at the festival and he's given us some amazing sets over the years with The White Stripes and The Raconteurs."

She added: "The Dead Weather played a surprise set in The Park last year which blew everyone away, so we can't wait to see them on the Pyramid Stage this year. Welcome back Jack!"

White has previously played on the Pyramid Stage in 2002 and 2005 (headlining) with The White Stripes, and in 2008 with The Raconteurs.

Glaastonbury will be headlined by U2, Muse and Stevie Wonder. Tickets have sold out.
