Ibn Ezra and Metzudos David (on Yehoshua, 8:33): The Kohanim, b'nei Levi, stood with the Aron in the middle and read out the B'rachos and the K'lalos. 1

Following the Lashon of the Pasuk there - and the Pasuk here refers to them as 'ha'Levi'im', since it is one of the twenty-four locations where the Torah refers to Kohanim as 'Levi'im' - See Yevamos, 86b. The Gemara in Sotah, 32a however, states that the Kohanim surrounded the Aron, and the Levi'im, the Kohanim. See Tosfos there, 37a DH 'I Efshar'.
