After vowing never to play Glastonbury Festival again, after Oasis headlined in 2004, Liam Gallagher appears to have gone back on his word and agreed to play an unannounced set with Beady Eye on the Other Stage tomorrow morning. Both the Gallagher brothers have spoken vehemently on their hatred of Eavis’ festival, however Liam has always been the most damning.

Liam Gallagher once described the sound and feel of Glastonbury in these words: “The sound is shit and really quiet. You can hear the crowd talking while you’re playing. They don’t put any money into the PA and it’s just full of fucking idiots.

Now it’s like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas.

Yet  Liam Gallagher looks set to play one of the coveted secret Glastonbury slots this year with his band, Beady Eye, as they to promote their new album ‘Be’. Tweeting yesterday the former Oasis frontman said: "11am Friday- BE there or BE square..LG x". The singer was also been spotted nearby Castle Cary yesterday.

The news Beady Eye will open the Other Stage tomorrow morning at 11am confirms one of a handful of as-yet-unannounced slots on the 2013 Glastonbury Festival line-up. 

Other favourites to be play secret sets at the 2013 edition of Glastonbury Festival include Hot Chip and The National. According to the bookies today, Daft Punk are 6/4 to appear, David Bowie is 6/1 and Queens Of The Stone Age are 10/1. Beady Eye were at 5/1 but now all bets are off.

Skrillex is another name who has been confirmed at the last minute. The US electronic music star went to Twitter late yesterday to confirm he'll be joining Dog Blood on the Sonic Stage at 19:45 tomorrow (Friday June 28) evening. The dubstep producer is also rumoured to make other appearences at the festival

In other Glastonbury news it looks like Earl Sweatshirt has had to pull out of all European July tour dates due to pneumonia. He has kept fans up to date with the development through his twitter, describing the ailment as one that would not go away ‘..like dubstep.’ He also delivered some good news to fans with the confirmation of the release date for his hotly anticipated LP ‘Doris’, due next month.

Mumford & Sons have confirmed that bassist Ted Dwane is fit and ready to rejoin them on stage at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday, which should make for an emotional reunion performance. Dwane had to undergo major surgery for a blood clot on the brain earlier this month, which led to the band cancelling a handful of US performances.
