Line-up[edit]

On 19 December 2013, it was announced that Arcade Fire would headline the Pyramid Stage on Friday 27 June 2014.[3] Kasabian will headline on Sunday 29 June.[4] In early March 2014, Glastonbury announced that Dolly Parton would perform at the festival via their Facebook page, although didn't confirm if she would be headlining. Other acts that self-confirmed were Disclosure (who will play the Other Stage on the Friday), Blondie, Lily Allen and Foxes.[5][6][7] The artist headlining on Saturday was listed as special guests due to legal reasons.
