Hot Chip have hinted they will be playing Glastonbury Festival.

The 'Ready For The Floor' hitmakers - who are set to release their fourth album 'One Life Stand' on February 1 - suggested they may be "in the Somerset area" at the time the festival is held.

Singer Alexis Taylor told BBC Newsbeat: "You'll potentially see us in the Somerset area of the UK around the end of June I'd imagine.

"I have been to that part of the world and enjoyed being there. Nice cider there, good music and good atmosphere."

The Glastonbury Festival will this year be celebrating its 40th birthday, and as such a number of big names have been linked to it.

Festival organiser Emily Eavis has so far confirmed that Irish band U2 will be performing, as will London-born Dizzee Rascal.

It has also been hinted that 'Your Game' singer Will Young will perform.

However, US punk rockers Green Day and the Rolling Stones will not be playing.

Tickets to the festival, which takes place from June 23 to 27, have sold out.
