Goldfrapp, Editors And The Enemy 'Confirmed' For Glastonbury

by | 13 March 2008

Goldfrapp, the Editors and the Enemy have signed up to play this year's Glastonbury festival, reports claim.

The Guardian has claimed that Scottish band the Fratellis and veteran singer Jimmy Cliff have also been confirmed for the festival at Pilton Farm, in Cornwall, this June.

A spokesman for the legendary event told the Guardian's website: "We're really excited to confirm the latest additions to this year's line-up.

"Goldfrapp and the Editors are two equally impressive but very impressive bands and we feel that all of today's announcements, particularly the wonderful Jimmy Cliff, represent what this year's Glastonbury is all about."

New York rapper Jay-Z, the Verve and Kings of Leon were confirmed last month as the headline acts at the festival, which will take place between June 27th and 29th.

The deadline for the pre-registration scheme for tickets will end this weekend and tickets will go on sale at 09:00 GMT on April 6th.

The event's founder Michael Eavis, 72, said earlier today that the festival was under threat due to the cows on his farm eating the metal spikes left in the ground by campers at the annual festival.

To combat the problem more than a million biodegradable pegs are to be given out to those camping this year.

"The festival is fun but the farm is our bread and butter. We hope these pegs are the answer," Mr Eavis said.
