Full report on BBC Newsbeat

The Verve and Kings of Leon will join Jay-Z as headliners of Glastonbury festival this summer.

It comes just days after Jay-Z was unveiled as the first rapper to headline the event.

Organisers have confirmed to Radio 1's Newsbeat that the bands will appear at Worthy Farm from 27-29 June.

Organiser Emily Eavis said: "We are thrilled that these acts are headlining. It really looks set to be an amazing year."

Kings of Leon will headline the Pyramid Stage on Friday 27 June, with Jay-Z performing on Saturday 28 June and The Verve closing the festival on 29 June.

Hot Chip will top the bill on the Other Stage.

Eavis added: "The Verve are a great Glastonbury band and they are finally doing the headline slot we have been waiting for for years.

"Jay-Z is coming all the way over especially, and he will undoubtedly do an incredible show, we are so honoured to have one of the world's greatest hip-hop artists on the farm.

"Kings Of Leon are one of the most exciting live bands out there and they have come through the ranks at Glastonbury, from the new bands tent a few years back.

"We see them as part of the great heritage of Friday night headliners Coldplay (and) White Stripes. They're ready to make that leap as well."

Other acts confirmed to play include British Sea Power and music legends Leonard Cohen and Neil Diamond.

If only I could win the lotto!!  Sounds fantastic.  My girls saw Kings of Leon in Brisbane last month and said they were absolutely brilliant.
