Franz Ferdinand To Play Glastonbury

by | 06 February 2009

Franz Ferdinand have become the first major band to confirm an appearance at this year's Glastonbury.

A listing on the group's website and MySpace page says they will play at the festival on Saturday June 27th.

A host of headline acts have been linked with this year's Glastonbury, among them Neil Young, Blur, Bruce Springsteen, Kanye West and Lily Allen.

Franz Ferdinand, who released their new album Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, played at a secret gig on the Park Stage at Glastonbury last year, and made their first appearance in 2004.

There is no word on which stage they will play this year.

All the tickets for this year's Glastonbury have already sold out, despite no official lineup being announced.
