Glastonbury 2014: The Kooks 'secret' set confirmed for Sunday
Luke Pritchard and his Brighton band will play the John Peel Stage
The Kooks will play a ‘secret’ set at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday, it has been announced.
The Brighton rock band will perform on the John Peel Stage in the afternoon, from 2.45 – 3.35pm, after rumours surfaced earlier this week.
Their slot had been marked ‘TBA’ on the official line-up, sparking speculation across the site as to who might be filling it.
Kaiser Chiefs staged an unexpected performance on The Other Stage to open the festival earlier, with frontman Ricky Wilson encouraging the crowd to help him banish the rain, which has been threatening to worsen for the remainder of the music event.
Other acts rumoured for surprise appearances over the weekend include the recently reunited Libertines, “Bulletproof” singer La Roux, David Bowie, Coldplay and Prince.
The latter had been in talks to perform at Glastonbury this year, but pulled out after becoming angered by “social media chit chat”.
Bands set to play today include Haim, Lily Allen, Elbow, Skrillex, Rudimental and Pyramid Stage headliners Arcade Fire.
