    Four Israeli groups will perform at Glastonbury this weekend, becoming the first musical acts from the country to appear at the festival.

    A collective, Saz, Ester Rada and 3421 are due to play 10 separate gigs during the five-day event.

    Former JC reporter-turned-Brit-Award-nominee Jessie Ware will also be singing.

    She is due to appear on the John Peel Stage on Sunday afternoon. American-Jewish sister trio Haim are among the headline acts.

    Jeremy Hulsh, chief executive of Tel Aviv-based organisation Oleh! Records, helped arrange the deal for the Israeli acts to appear at the festival.

    He said: “Everyone is really excited. This is a huge first and it is great for the Israeli music scene to have an influence on Glastonbury.

    “The organisers have been really helpful and have given us so many stages to perform on.”

    The busiest Israeli act will be soul singer Ester Rada — she is due to perform on four different stages.

    As a warm-up for Glastonbury, all the groups played at the Tune In Tel Aviv concert in Islington, north London, this week.
