We're pleased to announce our first act for Glastonbury Festival 2013. It's Malian singer Rokia Traore. In an act of solidarity with the musicians from Mali - where rebel groups in the north have banned music - an artist from the country will open the Pyramid Stage each day.

Emily Eavis has spoken to the Guardian about the decision to support Malian mucic at Glastonbury 2013. Click here to read the interview.
