U2 will be headlining Glastonbury for the first time next year, after being rumoured to appear many times in the past.

Festival organiser Michael Eavis has said: “At last, the biggest band in the world are going to play the best festival in the world. Nothing could be better for our 40th anniversary party. And there are even more surprises in the pipeline…”

U2 are following in the footsteps of other legends Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen, who both played fantastic career-spanning sets last year.

The band will headline The Pyramid Stage on Friday 25th June, flying in for the weekend before heading back to America to resume their tour. Tickets for the festival sold out in 24 hours last month, with an expected crowd of 177,500.
