Kaiser Chiefs are to open Glastonbury’s Other Stage with an 11am performance.
The slot was marked TBA on the official line-up. Last year, the same slot was filled by an unannounced Beady Eye show. Kaiser Chiefs will now play twice in one day, as the Leeds band were already due to headline the John Peel Stage.
The band tweeted news of their new slot, writing: “Opening the Other stage (11am Fri) & closing the John Peel stage at Glastonbury tomorrow! First & Last. Open & Close”
