Editors, Goldfrapp and the Enemy sign up for Glastonbury

They'll join headliners Jay-Z, the Verve and Kings of Leon down on the farm in June

The Editors, Goldfrapp and the Enemy are among the bands theguardian.com/music can exclusively announce will play this year's Glastonbury festival. Among the other acts set to make an appearance on Pilton Farm this June are Scottish rockers the Fratellis and reggae legend Jimmy Cliff. A spokesman for the festival said today: "We're really excited to confirm the latest additions to this year's line-up. Goldfrapp and the Editors are two equally impressive but very different bands and we feel that all of today's announcements, particularly the wonderful Jimmy Cliff, represent what this year's Glastonbury is all about."

Last month, it was announced that rapper Jay-Z, alongside the Verve and Kings of Leon, will make up this year's eclectic headlining trio. Other acts who have been confirmed for Glastonbury 2008, which takes place between 27th-29th June, include electro act Hot Chip and recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Leonard Cohen.

The deadline for Glastonbury's pre-registration scheme ends this weekend and last chancers must apply here before midnight on Friday 14 March.

CD: The Editors, An End Has a Start

They won't win any points for originality but the post-punk quartet are good enough for Alex Denney - and Edith Bowman.
