The Montreal-based band, who released their fourth studio album 'Reflektor' earlier this year, will play the festival on Friday 27 June. They confirmed their appearance at the festival via their Twitter account earlier today.

Arcade Fire last played Glastonbury Festival in 2007 on the Other Stage but will return to play the Pyramid Stage.


Talking to Zane Lowe on Radio One, their lead singer Win Butler said: "It's [Glastonbury] such a communal rite of passage in the UK and there's this communal spirit, the whole thing.

"It'll be at a point of touring when we're scary good, I hope. We're super excited to strap on our wellies and let her rip.

"The Friday is going to be a gorgeous, Californian sunshine day - if it's not, we'll refund your ticket."

Glastonbury Festival 2014 takes place from 25-29 June on Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.
