If you aren't sure who or what Tame Impala is, don't worry - we have you covered before they take to the Other Stage at Glastonbury Festival this evening.

Tame Impala is technically a one-man-band, as the brainchild of Perth musician and instrumentallist Kevin Parker. For live performances, Parker brings together a rolling line-up of other musicians and performers, including members of Pond - another Australian band - who took to the John Peel Stage earlier today.

Kylie Minogue admitted that her Glastonbury set will be an emotional experience after she was forced to cancel her 2005 performance. The Australian pop star had been due to headline the Pyramid Stage 14 years ago but had to pull out when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Speaking to the Mirror before performing in the festival’s Sunday afternoon Legends slot, the 50-year-old said that she will “absolutely” shed “tears” during the show. “I will remember what happened those years ago and my overriding feeling will just be of gratitude and how fragile life can be,” she told the paper. “Will there be tears? Absolutely.
