For the thousands that snapped up all this year’s Glastonbury Festival tickets in just 37 minutes, now is the time to get properly excited.
The full line-up has been announced for Glastonbury weekend, with some of the biggest names in music heading to Worthy Farm in Somerset from June 26 to June 30.
Grime artist Stormzy had already been confirmed as one of the Pyramid Stage’s headliners and now we know who will be joining him on Saturday and Sunday.
It had been long rumoured that veteran goth rockers The Cure were going to be taking one of the slots, with Glastonbury favourites, The Killers, also bringing their show to the main stage’s top slot.
Joining them at the five day event are Liam Gallagher, George Ezra and Tame Impala.
While Janet Jackson, Miley Cyrus and Lauryn Hill are among the female acts topping the bill this year.
Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue was previously announced for the prestigious ‘Legends’ slot on Sunday afternoon and the Eavis family had promised to work towards a 50/50 gender balance across the line-up.
Emily said: " The gender balance is something I consider at every stage of the booking process.
“We’re a little way off being 50/50 across the whole festival, but in 2017 the Park Stage was 50/50 and that will be the case on other stages this year. We’re definitely moving in the right direction.”
Liam Gallagher is also performing after confirming his appearance at the festival following his headline slot at the festival’s spin-off show, The Pilton Party.
Fellow Glastonbury regulars Johnny Marr, The Chemical Brothers and The Streets will also take the stage.
More acts will be announced in the months to come.
