Adele has announced she will headline Saturday night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The singer revealed the news live on stage at London’s O2, where she is in the middle of a six-night residency.

“Who’s going to Glastonbury this year?” she asked.

“I’ve had to keep that secret for years!” Adele added.

Glastonbury organizers later confirmed on Twitter that Adele will headline the Pyramid Stage.

Adele now joins Muse and Coldplay at the top of the bill when the festival takes place in June from 22 to 26.

Festival organizer, Emily Eavis, said: “What a great honor it is to have the wonderful Adele confirmed for this year’s Saturday night headline spot!”

Adele’s latest album, 25, has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide, and is currently No 1 in the UK albums chart.


Muse will headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival on Friday night on the Pyramid Stage.

The Friday slot makes Muse the first band to have headlined every night of the festival – they played on Saturday night in 2010, and Sunday in 2004.

Muse posted a video on Friday titled “Playing a little show at home…” showing clips from their previous Glastonbury performances.

The band won a Grammy for best rock album earlier this month.

Their seventh studio album, Drones, was released last June.

Coldplay revealed last week they would headline the Pyramid Stage on Sunday.

The Saturday headliners are yet to be announced – but Jeff Lynne’s ELO have been confirmed for the Sunday teatime slot.

The 2016 Glastonbury Festival runs from June 23 to 26.
