Kasabian have been confirmed as Sunday night's headline act at Glastonbury 2014, joining Friday headliners Arcade Fire.

In total, 87 names have been added to the bill of the festival, which takes place from 27 to 29 June. They include Pixies, Jack White, Elbow, Robert Plant, MIA, Skrillex and The 1975.

Kasabian will headline the Pyramid Stage for the first time in their decade-long career. Speaking exclusively to NME about their slot on this year's bill, the band's Serge Pizzorno says he'll be able to "die a happy man" after topped the Glastonbury bill.

Pizzorno says: "We knew we were in the running which was amazing. Being in the running is fine but you don't want to be in the race, you want to win it. You want to be on the podium. We got the phone call – I felt relieved because we've always wanted to do it from the first rehearsal, day one of the first rehearsal. We kicked into a tune and sort of went, 'Glastonbury!', a full on shout out."
