Arcade Fire have posted a picture on Twitter (main) which confirms their appearance at the 2014 Glastonbury Festival – presumably as headliners.
The image puts Glastonbury in between other European festival appearances and their own outdoor headline date at Dublin’s Marlay Park – they will perform at Worthy Farm on June 27th next year.
Organiser Michael Eavis told NME at the AIM Independent Music Awards earlier this year that Glastonbury would be treated to headline performances from acts who have never played the event before.
“Next year’s headliners are more or less in place,” he said. “They’re three bands who haven’t played Glastonbury, and that’s important. There aren’t many bands left who haven’t played the festival, and before we run out I’d like to persuade the ones on my wish list to come down. I think I’ve managed that with these three.”
Fleetwood Mac are widely tipped to top the Pyramid Stage in 2014, while The Stone Roses, Prince and Daft Punk are some of the other acts to be linked with a headline booking this coming June.
