Glastonbury have announced a cluster of names for their 2014 gathering, with the June mega festival swelling to new headliners. Founder Micheal Eavis had promised the festival this year would be bolstered by people who hadn't headlined the Pyramid in the past and has so far been true to this word, with Kasabian taking the slot on Sunday to follow on from the earlier announcement of Arcade Fire (watch them play the festival below during the rain soaked 2007 edition) as Friday headliners.
Whilst Saturday has yet to see an addition in the main slot for the Pyramid, there are plenty more additions elsewhere. Among the names added to the line up are grunge pioneers The Pixies returning for the first time since 1989, moody Mancunians Elbow, Anglo Sri Lankan chanteuse MIA and noise expert Skrillex among the new additions.
We're also pleased to see the likes of Disclosure, James Blake, Jack White, The Black Keys and many more popping out of the list. You can read what we thought of Glastonbury when we went last year.
