KEANE will headline next year's Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza, the organisers have revealed.

The Extravaganza, organised by Glastonbury Festival as a ‘thank you’ to locals, will take place on Saturday, August 3, with tickets on sale now.

Keane will be touring next year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their acclaimed debut album Hopes and Fears, which features ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, ‘Everybody's Changing’ and ‘This Is The Last Time’.

The album reached number one in the UK Albums Chart after its release in May 2004.

After the announcement was made, the band posted on X (formerly Twitter): “We are looking forward to playing at Glastonbury Abbey on August 3. See you there!”

The Shepton Mallet Big Band will also perform at the annual concert, with more special guests to be announced. 

The Extravaganza will conclude with its traditional fireworks finale.

Tickets will cost £45 for adults and £25 for children aged up to 16. Remaining tickets will cost £50/£30 on the gate.
