Glastonbury Line Up Finally Revealed

Michael Eavis, organiser of the Glastonbury festival, has today released the full line-up for this years' bigger-than-ever event.

As previously let slip by the bands themselves, The Who, Arctic Monkeys and The Killers are to headline the main Pyramid stage over the weekend starting June 22.

Other artists appearing on the main stage are Kasabian, Bloc Party, Paul Weller and The Waterboys.

Recent Ivor Novello winner and newly-wed Amy Winehouse will also be appearing.

Speaking about booking the artists, Eavis commented: "Believe it or not, it gets easier every year. People really want to play and get involved these days."

This years' Glastonbury festival will see its largest audience yet, with an extended capacity license of 177, 500 campers.

For those who are still desperately trying to find a way into the very sold-out party, a few returned and refunded tickets will be made available this Sunday June 3 from 9.30am.
