Having already announced Coldplay and Muse as two of the headliners for this year’s festival, organisers yesterday unveiled that the award winning singer, Adele, would be completing the bill toppers.
Adele will take to the iconic Pyramid stage on the Saturday night, whilst Devon trio Muse will play the Friday and rock-quartet Coldplay will close the event on the Sunday night.
In the middle of her six-day residency at London’s O2, the singer stated onstage that she would be taking to the festival saying:
“Who’s going to Glastonbury this year? See you there. I’ll be there. I’ll be headlining on the Saturday night this year.”
Festival organiser, Emily Eavis later took to Twitter to confirm the announcement, exclaiming her excitement:
”What a great honour it is to have the wonderful Adele confirmed for this year’s Saturday night headline spot!”
In past interviews Adele had mentioned her fear of the size of Glastonbury’s crowds, claiming that she didn’t think she could do it and that they are too big. But with her latest album, 25, selling over 19 million copies worldwide and currently being number 1 in the UK chart, maybe with her critically acclaimed talent, the time feels right.
Other acts announced so far also include PJ Harvey and Jess Glynne.
