Some 85 acts joining Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, and Radiohead at Glastonbury Festival 2017 were announced earlier this week, the likes of Katy Perry, Biffy Clyro and The National leading the pack.

Two more performers have since been confirmed for the festival, the most notable being Blossoms, who Emily Eavis revealed will be playing the Pyramid Stage.

"They are one of our favourite new bands from 2016,” she told NME. “They played at Pilton Party last summer, which is our special event to say thank you to the locals.”

Their debut self-titled record reached number one in the UK album charts last year, while their single ‘Charlemagne’ peaked at 98.

Australian singer Julia Jacklin was also confirmed by Eavis, who told the publication: "And we've got Julia Jacklin in the Park too. She's one of my favourite new voices. Just gorgeous.”

The singer, who has cited Glastonbury stalwart Billy Bragg as an influence, released her debut album last year, titled Don't Let the Kids Win.

Other performers confirmed to be playing Worthy Farm include The XX, Stormzy, and Solange, while the Sunday “legend” slot has been filled by Bee Gees’ singer Barry Gibb who played last year with headliner Coldplay. See the full line-up here.
