VF caught up with Suggs from Madness last week when he revealed the band would be playing at Glastonbury this year. It also transpires they'll be headlining Guilfest and performing at Bestival...

Madness have not played Glastonbury since 1986, headlined Guilfest last in 2003 and have never played Bestival. They are also planning a UK tour ahead of an album release.

Asked about Glastonbury, Suggs told VF: "We were going to do the Sunday afternoon bit but then I think Shirley Bassey came in so it's all being rearranged. But I very much look forward to playing there."

The Madness singer has since told Teletext's Planet Sound that they will be headlining Guilfest and appearing at Bestival, as well as staging a five night residency at London's Hackney Empire.
