Exclusive: Bloc Party for Glasto
Band reveal festival schedule21 Feb 07 - Bloc Party are set to play Glastonbury, the Reading Festival and T In The Park.
That's according to bassist Gordon Moakes, who spoke exclusively to 6 Music News:
"I don't know which ones have been announced from which one's haven't, I know we're playing T In The Park, I think we're playing Reading Festival, Glastonbury, so I think we'll be ever-present over the summer."
" I think we'll be ever-present this summer."

The band's current UK tour is coming to an end, but they hit the headlines when frontman Kele was hit by a coin while performing at Aberdeen's Music Hall.
"Somebody threw a coin and it kind of threw Kele's concentration more than anything else, because he was in the middle of a song. When we got through to the end of it, I said 'do you want to go off stage?' So we came off, and I think we were all a bit shaken by the whole thing."
The band returned to the stage to finish their performance, but Gordon revealed that a certain mood on the night was noticeable:
"There was this general feeling before we went on that the crowd was different to the sort of crowd we're used too. We're used to very enthusiastic, carefree audiences, but for some reason there was quite a muted tone to the whole evening and at least one person wanted to make them their presence felt."
The band play the Newcastle Academy on 21 February, before wrapping the UK tour up at Sheffield Octagon on 22 February.
