The Hives, Afrobeat and Kodaline are amongst many news act added today to the 2013 Glastonbury Festival line-up.

Joining The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys, Professor Green and Dizzee Rascal on the Pyramid Stage bill will be Malian performers Toumani Diabate and Bassekou Kouyate. The decision to have these Malian performers open the Pyramid Stage was made by the festival as a response to Islamist forces who have captured parts of the northern territory in Mali and imposed harsh sanctions, including a ban on all 'western' music.

The 1975, Dry The River, The Staves and Stornoway will now all feature on the Other Stage.

The Park Stage will feature sets from Haim, Nick Mulvey, Laura Mvula and Rozi Plain, alongside The Horrors and Palma Violets.

Amongst the new musical additions there's room for one matured broadcasting legend, 85-year-old Sir Bruce Forsyth, who will grace us with a performance on the Avalon Stage. Big bonus Brucie played Hop Farm Festival last year, and it's nice to see him back.. to see him back?

TV Presenter Dermot O'Leary will be going down the Rabbit Hole for a special DJ set on Thursday June 27. The BBC Radio 2 presenter previously revealed on Twitter that he is to perform at the festival and is looking for requests for his playlist.

You will also be able to catch the EDL (English Disco Lovers) presenting the Village Disco at La Pussy Parlure Nouveau. The pro-disco, anti-racism group will be looking to pull in a party vibe and respond in kindness to a surge in recent EDL incidents across the country.

The BBC also unveiled today their plans for the first "truly digital" coverage of Glastonbury Festival in 2013. Their plans include 250 hours of live broadcasting from the six main music stages. The BBC presenting team will include Chris Evans, Steve Lamacq, Mark Radcliffe, Jo Whiley, Nick Grimshaw, Gemma Cairney, Lauren Laverne, Dermot O'Leary and Craig Charles, who also plays an 'Up Close With' DJ set on the Hell Stage in Shangri-La on Friday June 28.
