As well as the headliners, Wiley has confirmed himself for the festival and  The Avalanches have also leaked that they would be performing. Country icon Kris Kristofferson also looks set to play.

The full Glastonbury line-up will be announced at a later date.

Last month, the Glastonbury bosses told NME that they’d booked ‘twice as many bands to play’ this year and that they’d be introducing the new area of a ‘drive-in cinema‘.
