The first act has been announced for Glastonbury Festival 2014.

Briston-based DJ duo Stanton Warriors announced the news on their Facebook page over the weekend (October 13).

"Glastonbury Festival (official) 2014 is a go!" the post reads. "It will be our 10th anniversary of playing there : )"

Stanton Warriers consists of producers Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley. Although they did not reveal which stage they will be playing on, last year the pair played the Glade stage and have previously played the West Dance stage.

Tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2014 sold out in record time, after going on sale earlier this month (October 6). 120,000 tickets were snapped up in one hour and 27 minutes, beating last year's record of one hour and 40 minutes.

While no headliners have been announced yet, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich revealed yesterday that the band would love to play Glastonbury, saying they are "ready to go" as and whenever organiser Michael Eavis needs them.

"Every year there's probably less chance of us doing it than the previous year, but it just looks like it would be a fun night out," said Ulrich. "We've been fortunate enough to play every other festival on this planet numerous times, so Glastonbury is the only one that's eluding us."
