Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire set for Glastonbury

Michael Eavis confirms two bands heading to Worthy Farm

Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis has confirmed several major bands who will appear at this year’s bash.

Speaking to NME.COM, the festival boss announced that Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire will be playing the bash which takes place between June 22 and 24.

When asked if there was a chance that both bands could play this year, Eavis told us: “Well, you’re lucky there then, I can tell you that.”

He also strongly hinted that the Sunday night headliners on the Pyramid Stage were a renown heritage act and subsequently The Who have said they are set to headline the event.

“It might be their very last gig,” Eavis explained. “I don’t know, they’re teasing us saying it might be their last show, I’m so excited about it.”

As previously reported, Bjork is also among the other acts that Eavis has confirmed early for this year’s festival.
