Arctics. Glastonbury. Headliners.

I'm acting all "Oh, that's not surprising," but am doing the happy dance at the same time about this announcement from the Eavis family. Yes, the band that my girl, Case, and I saw at the Metro in Chicago last March, is one of the m-effing Glasto headliners. That is chock-full of awesomeness.

Going to break out my "Dancing Shoes" right now!

In a declaration likely to surprise very few, the Arctic Monkeys have been unveiled as one of the acts to headline this year's Glastonbury festival.

When the last Glastonbury took place - the flash-flooded festival of 2005 - the Sheffield band was still four months away from releasing its debut single, I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor. Two years on, they will headline this summer's event, topping off their rapid rise with a place on the Pyramid Stage at Michael Eavis' Somerset farm. Icelandic singer Bjork, a veteran of the festival, will also perform.

Might attempt it. Actually have a better chance at getting V Festival tickets, since one of my best friends literally went to Sunday School with Dave Keuning from The Killers.
