SECURING a spot at one of the world’s biggest music festivals is twice as nice for a band of brothers.

Twins Graeme and Daniel Ross, who make up Gallery Circus, are set to perform at Glastonbury.

The 25-year-olds, from Boldon, have landed a slot on the BBC Introducing stage at the festival, held from June 25 to 29.

Drummer Graeme said: “Dan and I are both really looking forward to the festival.

“We’ve been to a couple of festivals in the past, such as Leeds and V, but never Glastonbury.

“It’s great how we are playing it on our first time. Most of our friends are already going to the festival so it’s going to be a great atmosphere. It’s a huge opportunity for us and we appreciate all the support from BBC Introducing and BBC Newcastle.”

Last year, the lads, who moved to Chicago, USA, for a year in 2010 to hone their skills, are getting ready to release their new EP, Little Gun, in September.

This year’s Glastonbury Festival, which was first staged in 1970, will see bands including Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian perform.

Gallery Circus will perform on the BBC Introducing stage from 1.30pm on Sunday, June 29, the final day of the festival.
