Glastonbury 2014 lineup: Kasabian, Pixies and Skrillex confirmed for bill

Festival organisers have added 87 names to the bill, handing headline slots to James Blake, Disclosure and MGMT, with places for MIA, Toumani Diabaté and Elbow.


Kasabian are to headline Glastonbury festival 2014, making their debut appearance at the top of the Pyramid stage bill on Sunday 29 June. The Leicester band are one of 87 names added to this year's lineup, which now includes Elbow, Pixies, MIA and Skrillex.

Although Saturday's Pyramid stage headliners are yet to be announced, there are plenty of big names among the new additions to the bill. Perhaps the most interesting of these is Pixies, who have not performed at Worthy Farm since 1989. The grunge pioneers are currently preparing to release their fifth album, Indie Cindy, which is also their first in 23 years.

Alongside Kasabian and Arcade Fire are several artists who headline stages for the first time. Skrillex will bring his manic take on dubstep and electronica to the Other stage after performing a variety of DJ sets at last year's festival. House and garage duo Disclosure will headline a night on the West Holts stage, while James Blake brings his hushed brand of dubstep to the Park. Elsewhere, MGMT headline the John Peel stage, while Richie Hawtin will occupy one of the top slots in Silver Hayes.
