Going to Glastonbury? Full line up released, nearly!

The organisers of  Glastonbury Festival have released the names of another 87 artists that will performat Worthy Farm this summer, including Kasabian, Jack White, Elbow and MIA.

Kasabian, Jack White, Pixies and Robert Plant are among the major acts to play this summer's Glastonbury Festival as organisers confirmed dozens of new names for the event.

Elbow, The Black Keys, Bryan Ferry and Massive Attack are among the other newly announced stars for the huge music bash which is being staged over the weekend of June 27 to 29.

Saturday's Pyramid Stage headliners are yet to be announced.

They join previously announced names such as Arcade Fire, Blondie, Lily Allen and Dolly Parton at the rural Somerset event put together by farmer Michael Eavis and his daughter Emily.

Other draws include Interpol, London Grammar, Wilko Johnson, De La Soul and Goldfrapp, with Jake Bugg, Lana Del Rey and Mercury Prize-winner James Blake also on the bill.

Organisers named many of the acts on a poster placed online today and claim there will be more than 100 stages scattered across the site at Worthy Farm, Pilton.

Further big names are expected and there has been persistent talk over many months of an appearance by Fleetwood Mac. Last year's big heritage act was the Rolling Stones, making their debut at the event.

The festival was granted a new 10-year licence, allowing for a capacity of up to 135,000 public tickets, by Mendip District Council last month, securing its future.

In February, Dolly Parton said she was "incredibly excited" to be playing the "legend slot" on the Pyramid Stage.

Tickets for the iconic festival sold out in an one hour and 27 minutes, with festival fans having until just before midnight on Monday 7 April to pay their balance. Remaining tickets go on resale on 24 April for coach packages and 27 April for standard tickets.
