Independent.co.uk — Idris Elba has announced that he will be joining Arcade Fire, Dolly Parton and The Black Keys at this summer’s Glastonbury Festival. The British actor, known for his lead role in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom , is also a DJ and rapper under the moniker “Driis”. He played a set on Spanish party island Ibiza last year and is due back again in 2014.
“I get butterflies when I act but when you’ve got two turntables and 6,000 people in front of you, standing there going ‘come on then’ – that feeling doesn’t rely on the skills of an actor,” Elba told Gigwise. “It’s all about instinct and knowing your music and reading the crowd. You don’t get that from acting.”
Also performing with Elba in June are Lana Del Rey, Disclosure, Blondie and Warpaint. Glastonbury Festival takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from 25-29 June
