Arctic Monkeys arrive at Glastonbury
Arctic Monkeys have arrived at Glastonbury – prompting speculation they join Radiohead and Pulp as acts who have not been billed but will perform.

Arctic Monkeys have arrived at Glastonbury – prompting speculation they will perform.

The 'Brick by Brick' rockers are not on the bill for the festival, but rumoured to be one of the acts putting in surprise performances, and their arrival onsite all but confirms this.

Dance pop star Example - who was much delayed getting into the festival – tweeted: "I'm not allowed to park my bus behind the stage I'm playing because the Arctic Monkeys have taken our space. And they're not even playing."

Although he later added: "I'm actually a massive fan of Arctic Monkeys, so that's reduced my anger."

Other surprise performances will include Pulp, who were confirmed this afternoon (24.06.11) to play tomorrow, and Radiohead who stared a surprise set on the Park stage at 20.00 today.

Fans at the show tweeted the set list, which ran 'Lotus Flower', '15 Step', 'Magpie', 'Little by Little', 'All I Need', 'Separator', 'Give up the Ghost', 'Weird Fishes/Arpeggi', 'Staircase', 'I Might Be Wrong', 'Bloom', 'Reckoner', 'Daily Mail' and as an encore 'Street Spirit (Fade Out)'.

The band told the BBC, who are filming most of the festival, that they didn't want them to broadcast their set, as they wanted it to be special for the fans who are there.
