The news comes as the US pop-punk giants were announced as the first headliners for the festival to be confirmed. They are joined by Metronomy, Disclosure and Jake Bugg on the bill for the festival, which will take place on the bank holiday weekend in August.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 about the headline slot and plans for new music, Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus said: “We are coming with new material. We go into the studio after the holidays, and the goal is to have an album out in time for the festival.”
