Mumford and Sons

Mumford and Sons will play a secret set at Glastonbury festival this week, while Kaiser Chiefs will play two sets over the weekend

Mumford and Sons will play a secret set at Glastonbury festival this week.

The folk rock group - made up of Marcus Mumford, Winston Marshall, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwane - headlined the event at Worthy Farm last year and are set to return for one of their most intimate gigs in recent years.

A source told The Sun newspaper they are hosting their own area after their triumphant 2013 set on the Pyramid Stage.

The band will be at the Gentleman Of The Road Stage in the Fields Of Avalon on Saturday (28.06.14) and the area will feature artists from the group's record label, Communion, with Johnny Flynn, Michael Kiwanuka and Nick Mulvey all confirmed along with "expected [and unexpected] surprises throughout."

Meanwhile, Kaiser Chiefs - featuring Ricky Wilson, Andrew 'Whitey' White, Simon Rix, Nick 'Peanut' Baines and Vijay Mistry - are playing two high-profile sets at the Somerset.

They will open The Other Stage tomorrow (27.06.14) before closing the John Peel Stage later in the evening.

Ricky told The Sun newspaper: "It's going to be great. It's the first time we've played a gig in the UK for ages, so there's always a certain amount of concern about the show.

"But we're really looking forward to it. My voice now is better than it's ever been.

"I had to make sure of that after being a judge on a singing show ['The Voice']."
