Kasabian have confirmed they will be performing at Glastonbury 2024 after much fan speculation.

In the lead-up to the annual festival – currently taking place at Worthy Farm until Sunday (June 30) – rumours have been rife of a surprise performance at the Woodsies Stage today (June 29) with a 6pm slot that has been listed as ‘TBA’.

In a new social media post shared by the band, they confirmed that they are the ‘TBA’ act set for 6pm at the Woodsies Stage, sharing a picture of the onsite notice, along with a timelapse clip of the band on the way to the festival in a private car.


Twitter/X account @secretglasto shared earlier today that the 6pm slot has indeed been filled by Kasabian, referencing the band’s 2004 hit ‘L.S.F.’. “Anyone lonely and stuck for something to do at 1800?” the account tweeted. “Head to Woodsies and you won’t be LOST SOULS FOREVER”.

Last December, NME spoke to Kasabian about the possibility of returning to Glastonbury this year, which marks a decade since the band headlined the Pyramid Stage. “There isn’t any kind of [plan],” said chief songwriter Serge Pizzorno. “There was before – ‘We want this, this, this and this’, you know what I mean? Now there’s none. Now there’s like: great record, and then go and play.


“The American shows… seeing one kid on the shoulders, direct eye contact, singing every word, having that moment. You realise after it all – that’s as good as it gets. So we’re just going to see where it goes, but have no plan.”

This will mark Kasabian’s first Glastonbury performance since the departure of frontman Tom Meighan in 2020. The band’s vocal duties is now handled by keyboardist Tim Carter. Their eighth studio album ‘Happenings’ is due for release on July 5.
