The pair join headliners Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar for Glastonbury 2022, which will run between June 22-26.
Irish acts Imelda May and Orla Gartland are among the acts that have been added to the 2022 Glastonbury line-up, joining fellow Dublin talents Fontaines D.C.
The performers will take to the stage at the Field of Avalon area when the highly anticipated festival returns in June after being cancelled for the past two years due to the pandemic.
A poster for the stage also announced Sugababes, McFly, The Hoosiers, Nick Mulvey, The Damned and poet John Cooper Clarke will make an appearance at Worthy Farm in Somerset this summer.
It will be Glastonbury’s first edition since 2019, with both the 2020 (due to be headlined by McCartney, Lamar and Taylor Swift) and 2021 festivals both cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Billie Eilish will become the youngest ever headline act this year at the age of 20.

In other Glasto news, Amy Winehouse’s iconic performance in 2007 is being released on vinyl for the first time ever.
The vinyl release of ‘Live at Glastonbury 2007’ will mark the 15th anniversary of Winehouse’s legendary performance on the Pyramid Stage, her second time playing Glastonbury. She performed her timeless hits like ‘Rehab’, ‘You Know I’m No Good’, ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’ and ‘Valerie’.
Artwork for the release will include a recollection of the performance by Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis, who said in a statement: “Amy Winehouse was a Glastonbury-goer through and through. She either came and played or, when she wasn’t working, came and camped. She played in the blistering heat and the heavy rain, and there were so many magical moments to her performances.”
The vinyl is due for release on June 3 via Universal Music. The performance is being pressed on 2 black LPs, with a crystal clear edition made available exclusively through Universal Music. Pre-order the vinyl here.
