Glastonbury festival to release full line-up in April
Singer Lana Del Rey is officially confirmed for the June bash too
A tweet from the event's official account confirmed the news yesterday (March 30).
For those of you asking, our line-up will be announced in April (which is when it's usually revealed). It's looking good!— Glastonbury Festival (@GlastoFest) March 30, 2014
Last year's line-up was issued on March 27, 2013. When a Twitter user replied stating that fact, the reply from the festival read: "yep, that was an unusually early one :)".
For UK and international ticket buyers who have paid for their ticket using the deposit scheme, the remaining balance of £160 plus £5 booking fee is due in the first week of April. Asked on Twitter if the line-up would be released before the final payment was due, the festival organisers did not reply.
They also confirmed that a date for the resale of remaining festival tickets has not yet been set.
The festival has updated the shortlist of acts confirmed for the festival on its official website to include Lana Del Rey, whose appearance was revealed on the website of her bookers, Primary Talent, last week. The acts officially confirmed on the Glastonbury Festivals website are Arcade Fire, Dolly Parton, Lily Allen, Disclosure, Blondie, The Black Keys, Lana Del Rey and Warpaint.
Arcade Fire are the only confirmed headliners for this year’s festival, and will play on Friday June 27. William Hill suspended betting in February on Kasabian headlining the Pyramid Stage, while on March 27 Paddy Power made Metallica and Prince joint favourites to headline the Saturday of the festival. However, Emily Eavis recently said that Prince “wasn’t booked this year”.
