Glastonbury Festival has unveiled its lineup for this year’s event.

Stormzy had previously been announced as the Friday night headliner with Kylie already being confirmed to take the coveted ‘legend slot’ on Sunday afternoon.
Other acts announced on Friday morning include:
- George Ezra
- Miley Cyrus
- Christine & The Queens
- Jorja Smith
- Liam Gallagher
- Wu Tang Clan
- Vampire Weekend
- The Streets
- Billie Eilish
- Tame Impala
- Two Door Cinema Club
- The Chemical Brothers
- Years & Years
- Little Simz
- Johnny Marr
- Loyle Carner
- Mavis Staples
- Neneh Cherry
- Jon Hopkins
While all three Pyramid stage headliners are male – 42% of the currently-announced line-up is female, highlighting the festival’s commitment to gender parity.
“The gender balance is something I consider at every stage of the booking process,” said festival organiser Emily Eavis in an interview last month.
“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.”
The cure will tie with Coldplay as the festival’s most frequent headliner when they take to the Pyramid Stage for the fourth time overall, with the booking being their first performance at the event since 1995.
