Organisers confirm rumours

Bruce Springsteen will be headlining this year’s Glastonbury Festival, organisers confirmed this morning.

Springsteen had been strongly rumoured to play the festival, which takes place between June 24-28.

Writing on Glastonbury website Michael Eavis confirmed The Boss would be appearing: “I’m so pleased that Bruce Springsteen has agreed to come to Worthy Farm for the first time,” he said. “He’s one of the all-time rock legends and I’m confident that this will be one of our best shows ever. He’s also a Barack Obama supporter, which makes two headliners in a row who’ve backed the new President.”

“I’m knocked out that we’ve managed to get Bruce to play,” added Emily Eavis. “It’s the icing on the cake of this year’s bill, which I’m sure will take everyone’s breath away when we announce the full details.”

Tickets for this year’s festival have now sold out. A limited number of cancelled tickets will go on sale at 9am on April 5.
