Wild Beasts’ next UK show will see the band perform on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury on the first day of the festival (Friday, June 28). They appear on a bill that also includes Chvrches, Lykke Li and Kaiser Chiefs. The band will then support Arcade Fire at the band’s London gig at Hyde Park on July 3.
