Glastonbury Festival: full line-up announced

Katy Perry, Stormzy and The XX join Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran and dozens of other acts

Glastonbury Festival organisers have announced the full line-up for this year’s event, with Katy Perry, The XX, Lorde and Stormzy joining headliners Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran.  

Advertised via a tweet and a poster on the Glastonbury Festival website, this is one of the organisers' earliest full-programme announcements in years.

Other names playing the weekend include Biffy Clyro, The National and Father John Misty, as well as Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb, who performed with Coldplay last year.   

Clean Bandit, Chic, Craig David, Emeli Sande, Solange, Kaiser Chiefs, Major Lazer, Run the Jewels, Alt-J, Boy Better Know, The Jacksons, HAIM, Justice, Dizzee Rascal and George Ezra will also be playing.

Add to the list Laura Marling, Phoenix, First Aid Kid, The Flaming Lips, Warpaint, Metronomy, Goldfrapp, Sleaford Mods, The Avalanches, Glass Animals and Courteeners and festival-goers are in for a busy time if they want to catch a glimpse of all the acts on stage.

One name is not yet known - the "golden oldie" who traditionally fills the Sunday 4pm slot on the Pyramid Stage is yet to be officially announced, the Daily Telegraph says.

However, the paper suggests country singer Kris Kristofferson, known for songs such as Me And Bobby McGee and Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down, might follow in the footsteps of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers at the festival.

Glastonbury will take place at its traditional home of Worthy Farm, Somerset from 23-25 June. Tickets have already sold out. Glasto-goers must pay off the rest of their deposit this weekend, too.

Festival organisers will take their regular fallow year in 2018.
