Adele to Headline Glastonbury Festival

  /  03.19.2016

Glastonbury, say “Hello” to Adele. After performing at the Grammys and the BRITs last month, the British songstress will headline the annual Glastonbury Festival this summer.

Adele made the big announcement during her six-night residency at London’s O2 Arena on Friday (Mar. 18).

“Who’s going to Glastonbury this year?” she asked the crowd. “See you there. I’ll be there. I’ll be headlining on the Saturday night this year.”

Right after this, Glastonbury confirmed the announcement. “As @Adele just announced live on stage in London, she will headline Saturday night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival,” tweeted the festival.

Adele is the latest superstar to headline the prestigious festival. Last year, Kanye West had the honor and Beyoncé and Jay Z have topped the bill in past years.

In addition to Adele, Coldplay and Muse will take the stage at Glastonbury, which is set to go down June 22-26 in Pilton, Somerset, England.
