Muse and Adele are revealed as headliners at Glastonbury Festival on Friday and Saturday, June 24-25, 2016
The two huge British acts are joining Coldplay, who’s top-billing the Pyramid Stage for the fourth time on Sunday, June 26.
While the news of Muse’s appearance were confirmed at the beginning of the month, Adele’s announcement came in last night, made by the singer herself. She revealed during a show last night she’d be playing the UK’s biggest outdoor festival for the first time.
“Don’t tell anyone I told you,” she said to the London crowd. “I think it’s a secret.”
The Glasto team quickly took to Twitter to confirm the news.
As @Adele just announced live on stage in London, she will headline Saturday night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival!

For anyone who isn’t happy about this year’s not-all-too-unexpected combination of headliners, Queen Adele’s already got something to add, “To the people who say I am too boring to headline, you’re more fucking boring for moaning about me headlining.”
Glastonbury Festival is an annual five-day festival that takes place in Worthy Farm, Somerset, England. Apart from headliners and star performers, the festival also showcases dance performances, comedy, theatre and other arts. It is the largest greenfield festival in the world, hosting around 175,000 attendees every year. This year, the festival will take place on from June 22-26.
