Rock band Muse have been confirmed as one of the headliners at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

The Supermassive Black Hole singers will perform on the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night and in doing so they will make history.

They will become the first band ever to have headlined every night of the festival, having headlined Saturday night in 2010 and Sunday in 2004.

Muse posted a video on Twitter showing snippets from their previous appearances, ending with a scene of an empty field, and wrote: " Playing a little show at home ..."

The trio, from Devon, join Coldplay on the bill for the famous music event.

Coldplay announced their gig on social media with a picture of the Pyramid Stage mid-construction and a sign saying "Sunday, June 26" with hot air balloon imagery from their new album A Head Full Of Dreams.

The Paradise singers will be the first band to headline at Worthy Farm in Somerset four times, after outings in 2002, 2005 and 2011.

Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis tweeted earlier this month that PJ Harvey is coming back to the event for the first time since 2004, playing the Other Stage on Sunday.
