Kasabian will rock with the wildlife when they perform at Thetford Forest in Suffolk next summer

Kasabian are set to play a special show in a forest next year.

The 'Bless This Acid House' rockers - Tom Meighan, Serge Pizzorno, Chris Edwards and Ian Matthews - will rock with the wildlife at Thetford Forest in Suffolk, England on June 10.

Announcing the show on Twitter, the band wrote: "It's out ... we're playing #ThetfordForest on Sunday 10th June! Pre-sale live now via this link (sic)"

The festival series has previously seen the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Ed Sheeran and Elbow perform.

It comes after the 'Club Foot' hitmakers were confirmed for the 50th anniversary of Isle of Wight Festival on June 22, 2018.

Kasabian last headlined the event in 2011, having first played it four years previously, and they admitted the history of the site means a great deal to them.

They said: "We're hugely honoured to play at the Isle of Wight Festival. It's kind of a big deal Jimi Hendrix played in the 70's, 50 years on and we're playing it!

"That's pretty phenomenal, thanks for having us back! We promise Friday night will be the one!"

The band are riding high on the success of their critically-acclaimed record 'For Crying Out Loud' and their UK arena tour, which saw them play two consecutive nights at London's The O2 arena on December 1 and 2.

Tickets for Thetford Forest go on sale on Friday (15.12.17) from 9am.
