Past and present greats for Glastonbury

LONDON: Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Blur were announced Monday as the headline acts at this year's Glastonbury festival, with spoof rockers Spinal Tap also set to grace the stage.

Other veteran performers included on the bill of the three-day event in western England next month are Status Quo, Tom Jones, Madness, Tony Christie and singer-songwriters Crosby, Stills and Nash.

It's not all old-timers, however, with the second stage filled with the likes of Ting Tings, Lady Gaga, The Maccabees, Pendulum and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Streets, Black Eyed Peas and Baaba Maal due on the jazz stage.

All the tickets for the world's largest greenfield music and performing arts festival, which this year runs from June 26 to 28, were sold in February, with many having been bought last year.
