Hard Fi and Turncoat have been confirmed for the Left Field arena at Glastonbury, the latter band hand-picked by stage-supporters Amicus The Union.
Hard Fi have been drafted in to replace Lady Sovereign, who has been forced to pull out due to commitments at the Wireless Festival in London.
The band join Babyshambles, The Others, and more on the Saturday night – all supporting the Left Field ethos by volunteering their services.

Turncoat will open the day’s proceedings on the Saturday, hand-selected by Amicus The Union, for their “great songs, stage presence and attitude”.
Amicus are really getting behind new music this year – not only are they supporting Glastonbury by helping out with the Left Field, but they are also sponsoring Virtual Festivals’ ‘Discovered!’ project, which will allow two young bands the chance of a lifetime to play at festivals throughout the summer.
Virtual Festivals will again have a presence at the Left Field, hosting our own evening on the Friday, with British Sea Power, Sonic Audio and a Madchester supergroup, tipped to include members of the Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses and Inspiral Carpets!
