Russian punk band Pussy Riot will be performing at Glastonbury Festival 2015.

The event has revealed its full line-up for the year, where the anti-Putin activists will appear twice during the festival, once on the Park Stage on Saturday 27 June and the Left Field on Friday 28 June, the BBC has reported.

Others lined up for the fest are Burt Bacharach, The Proclaimers, The Cribs and Wilko Johnson along with Pyramid Stage headliners Foo Fighters, Kanye West and The Who.

Singer-songwriter and activist Billy Bragg, who hosts Glastonbury’s Left Field, revealed on Twitter writing “Pleased to announce that Nadya and Masha from Pussy Riot will be speaking at Left Field @GlastoFest 1.30pm Friday.”

The pair was released from a Russian prison last year after 21 months, having charged for hooliganism over protests in Moscow.
