Damon Albarn has confirmed that Blur will headline the Glastonbury festival this year.

Albarn who performed “This Is a Low” with Graham Coxon at the Shockwaves NME Awards on Wednesday night (February 25), confirmed the reunited band’s festival appearance after their first live appearance in nine years.

Talking to the Daily Mirror at the Awards aftershow at Dex, the singer said: “Yeah, we’re doing Glasto this year. We were asked last year, but we turned them down.”

The singer also hinted that Blur will play more gigs before the Summer shows including Hyde Park, Manchester and T In The Park, saying: “We need a few more warm-up gigs to get back into it, ready for the big one. Glastonbury’s great.”
