Adele to headline at Glastonbury Festival

Adele - Hello

Adele has revealed she is to headline at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The pop star will join rock band Muse and Coldplay as one of the leading acts at the event.

Adele broke the news to fans while performing at London’s O2 arena.

The singer will top the bill on Saturday night at the festival in Worthy Farm, Somerset, the festival’s Twitter page confirmed.

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis tweeted: “What a great honour it is to have the wonderful Adele confirmed for this year’s Saturday night headline spot on the Pyramid Stage!”
News of her appearance met with a mixed reaction on Twitter

One wrote: “This ought to be interesting.”

Another tweeted: “Adele headlining signals that Glastonbury is now just a family day out rather than the rock festival it used to be.”
Meanwhile, the Supermassive Black Hole singers will make history by performing on the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night.

They will become the first band ever to have headlined every night of the festival, having headlined Saturday night in 2010 and Sunday in 2004.
