Leicester band Kasabian have this morning (April 4) been named as the second headliner for this year’s Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts.  

It will be the first time that the indie quartet will perform as headliners on the festival’s iconic Pyramid Stage, closing the festival in the top slot on Sunday, June 29.

They join the previously announced Arcade Fire, who will headline on Friday, with one more headline act still to be confirmed for the Saturday.

Speaking of the East Midlands headliners to the Guardian, organiser Emily Eavis said: “We always take great pride in putting a great British band on to headline the Pyramid and this time it’s Kasabian, who are one of the most requested bands from Glastonbury-goers and an amazing live act.

“It’s going to be one hell of a show!”

The latest poster – also revealed this morning – details 86 other acts who will be playing this year’s event including Jack White, Dolly Parton and The Black Keys. Skrillex, Disclosure, Rudimental, Paolo Nutini, The 1975 and Jake Bugg also appear on the bill.

The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts will take place across the 27-29 June, 2014. Check out the latest poster in full below: BkXIV0kIcAA5zWe
