The Wire star, who performs under the name Driis, was set to DJ at the iconic music event in England in 2014, but he scrapped his show just days before he was due to take to the stage because he was unable to take time out from an acting project.

However, Elba is now on the bill for the 2015 festival and will play at the event's dance village along with stars including Tricky, Jess Glynne and Grandmaster Flash.

Glastonbury runs from 25-28 June (15) in Somerset, England and this year's (15) event is to be headline by Foo Fighters, The Who and Kanye West.
