Oasis, Sir Paul and Muse will headline the main Pyramid stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively.

The English National Opera will perform part of Wagner's Ring Cycle with a 90-piece orchestra on the final day.

Oasis will follow Kings of Leon, PJ Harvey and Groove Armada on Friday, while the Chemical Brothers, DJ Dave Clarke and the Levellers head other stages.

Basement Jaxx, Zero 7 and Hothouse Flowers are among headliners in the festival's nine performance areas on Saturday.

Morrissey will precede Muse on Sunday, when dance duo Orbital will give their final Glastonbury performance before splitting up after 15 years.

Franz Ferdinand, Scissor Sisters, Goldfrapp, Snow Patrol, Chicks on Speed and GoldieLookinChain also feature among the hundreds of confirmed performers.

All 112,000 tickets to the festival were thought to have been sold within a day when originally released in April.

Selling for 112 each, tickets were limited to two per person.

However, an extra batch was subsequently made available after some fans originally ordered too many.
