British Mecury Prize winners Alt-J are currently setting the Glastonbury fields alight with buzzing rumours that they will be playing a small secret set in the William's Green Tent tonight at 22:20 (Thursday 27 June).

The indie rock quartet's set on the Other Stage tomorrow is hotly-tipped to draw a huge crowd, so the chance to see them play a closely-guarded secret set in the small William's Green tent is an opportunity to catch the group at their most intimate.

Also expected to play sets at the venue this evening are Django Django and Dry The River (8pm) in a trio of unscheduled surprise shows.

Alt-J’s debut album ‘An Awesome Wave’ released in 2012 has propelled them into the spotlight. Singles ‘Breezeblocks’, ‘Tessellate’, 'Something Good’ and ‘Matilda’ all made the top ten of the UK Indie charts. ‘An Awesome Wave’ itself won them the Mercury Prize.

This will be Alt-J’s first time performing at Glastonbury . They sharpened their festival teeth last year playing a number of events including Latitude, Bestival, Reading and Leeds, End Of The Road and T In The Park.
