EVEN a Seven-Nation Army would be unable to prevent thousands of fans from flocking to The Park Stage at Glastonbury Festival this evening for Jack White's ‘secret set.’

Festival organisers have confirmed that White, 46, will take to the stage at 6pm on the festival's final day (Sunday, June 26).

Glastonbury's official Twitter account shared the news at around 11:40am today, saying: “Jack White. The Park. 6pm.”

The stage's 6:15pm to 7:15pm slot had previously been teased as  “TBC” in the festival's full line-up.

The festival's tweet shared a snippet from the on-site newspaper Glastonbury Free Press, which said there will be an “exciting opportunity in the field of audience science tonight.

The brief article added: “Musician Jack White is seeking 10,000 lively and loud individuals to participate in a top-secret experiment of musical concertry. Qualified applicants must apply in-person on 26 June at 6pm at The Park Stage.” 

White released his fourth studio album Fear of the Dawn in April, which will be followed by Entering Heaven Alive on July 22.

He is most famous for being one-half of American rock duo The White Stripes with Meg White between 1997 and 2011, when they dissolved following a hiatus.

The White Stripes are best-known for ‘Seven Nation Army’ and its distinctive opening riff, while their other hits include ‘Fell In Love With a Girl’ and ‘Icky Thump’.

White's solo career has brought popular tracks such as ‘Lazaretto’ and ‘Love Is Blindness’.

George Ezra has also been announced as a ‘secret set’ performer at Glastonbury Festival.

He will bring hits from his latest number one studio album Gold Rush Kid to the John Peel Stage today at 2pm.
