On 17 January 2013 it was announced that on each day, in an act of solidarity, musicians from Mali would open the Pyramid Stage. Islamists have banned music in the North of the North African nation. The first musician announced to open the Pyramid Stage was Rokia Traoré.
The London-based indie group The Vaccines announced on their Facebook page that they would be playing the Pyramid Stage on the Friday. The lineup was announced on 27 March at 7pm on the Glastonbury website and on the Zane Lowe radio show on BBC Radio 1.
