Sonic Youth to play Glastonbury 2009?

United Kingdom United Kingdom | 26 January 2009

The alternative rockers, whose 21st album 'The Eternal' is set for release this June, revealed that they're set for one or two festivals this summer and the Somerset event is in their sight.

Speaking to 6Music singer Thurston Moore said: "I'm almost positive we'll definitely be doing one or two festivals in the UK."

"I wanna play Glastonbury because it’s such a disaster camp and I really enjoy that.

"The general consensus amongst musicians I know is that it's like walking into the pit of hell, and in some way it really feels like that."

The last UK festival the band played was All Tomorrow's Parties Nightmare Before Christmas in 2006.

Glastonbury Festival 2009 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton in Somerset from 24-28 June.
