The Guardian today revealed the full line-up for this year's Glastonbury Festival. As well as the bits we already knew, like Bruce Springsteen headlining the Pyramid Stage on Saturday, and Blur collecting a nice reformation paycheque on the Sunday night, Neil Young is also confirmed.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will be along to whup the pale rears of Blur on Sunday night, while earlier in the day the traditional last day of the festival, granny tea time fare will be provided by Tony Christie and Tom Jones.

Bjorn Again, Spinal Tap and Madness will be providing the joke tunes, while the Prodigy will be closing the Other Stage on the Sunday night.

Further down the bill, it looks like the Penguin Cafe Orchestra have got back together again, The Horrors will be bringing some welcome gloom amidst the hippies twirling ribbons, and Joe Gideon & The Shark and British Sea Power are also confirmed. There's the usual haul of Godawful, how-the-hell-did-they-get-in trendy indie from the likes of Hockey, Fight Like Apes, Bombay Bicycle Club, Florence & The Machine.
