Pulp and Primal Scream have been confirmed for headline performances at this year’s Glastonbury Festival which runs from June 26-28. Pulp (Jarvis Cocker pictured) close the festival on the Sunday night while the Primals will headline the opening Friday night. James are onstage just prior to the Primals. The Lightning Seeds are also confirmed for Friday. Other acts confirmed for Glastonbury include Bob Dylan, Placebo, Blur, Embrace, Spiritualized, Underworld, Ian Brown, Finley Quaye, Dawn Of The Replicants, Ben Folds Five, Tori Amos and Idlewild.
Glastonbury organisers are also hoping to screen the England versus Colombia World Cup football match. And despite reports elsewhere, organisers say there are no plans for Pearl Jam to appear at this year’s festival.
