Napalm Death will play at this year’s Glastonbury, it’s been confirmed.

Their name appears on a poster for the Worthy Farm festival’s Shangri-La area where they’ll perform on The Truth Stage with bands including Tourettes Hero, New York Brass Band and Ratboy.

Other stages at Shangri-La include Clash, Gas Tower, SHITV and The Greenhouse.

A statement from Shangri-La reads: “Giant Towers of Trash now dominate the Shangri-La skyline. Structures have formed from the scrap, dwellings made of detritus, art from the embers.

“A Gas Tower looms over the site – harnessing the creative energy around it. A symbol of a bygone industrial era, it has reformed here, at the epicentre of the Digital Revolution. 360 degrees of awe-inspiring audio visual action.

“From the ashes of Hell rises The Truth Stage, where the sounds of the revolution resonate all night long. The container walls of the Clash throb in a cacophony of chaos, as the biggest names in underground music collide.

“Shangri-La International Television Centre SHITV – triples its transmission by opening all day long for debates and discourse in DIY culture, documentary making and Activism. By night, it broadcasts the best in UK comedy and live art. The truth will take over your TV.”

The statement concludes: “Shelter is sought inside towers of textiles, pillars of plastic and columns of consumerism. The rubbish is a refuge. Every space becomes a place to party or ponder, be it a tube train, a bus, a skip or a bin. Keep it real, Keep it tidy.”

This year’s Glastonbury festival will take place between June 21-25, with headliners Foo Fighters and Radiohead joined by dozens more artists including Biffy Clyro, Royal Blood, The Flaming Lips, The Can Project and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.
