Arcade Fire Confirmed To Headline Glastonbury 2014

Written by Sarah Bella on December 20, 2013

Montreal indie sweethearts Arcade Fire have self-confirmed that they’ll be headlining Glastonbury next June, with the Reflektor stars breaking the good news via Twitter that they’ll be playing on the Friday night.

Win Butler and company posted an image to Twitter (below), with the band’s name spelled out in scrabble letters and the dates of Glastonbury, as well as festivals Rock In Roma, Villa Franca Di Verona, and a date at Dublin’s Marlay Park, accompanied by the text ‘Next year, one week in June’.

And organiser Emily Eavis was quick to confirm, tweeting “We’re very happy to let you know that Arcade Fire are headlining next years Glastonbury. Happy Christmas to you all..” The 7-piece are now the second definite act for the bill, following last month’s disclosure from Lily Allen that she’s playing the beloved festival on the Sunday night.

Arcade Fire’s headline position, however, is contrary to Michael Eavis‘ talk last September that the 2014 top honours would go to Glastonbury virgins, with the outfit having graced the stages of the festival back in 2007.

If you can’t quite make the trip over the UK, luckily the outfit are teaming up with Pearl Jam to headlining our very own Big Day Out, kicking off on 19th January on the Gold Coast before making its way around the country.
