Glastonbury line-up announced

The last of the big festivals has finally announced the bulk of its line-up, with a lot of people expected to be very impressed. Spread across 12 music stages, this year’s Glastonbury festival is bigger and better than ever as it celebrates its 40th birthday.

Already confirmed Friday headliners U2 will be joined by Muse and Stevie Wonder on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Having been rumoured headliners for months, it has been confirmed that the soul legend will definitely be playing Worthy Farm.

The festival, which sold out in a day, will be showcasing a variety of different acts across the June weekend of 25th – 27th.

There will be main stage performances from Scissor Sisters, Faithless, Slash and Willie Nelson.

Perhaps one of the most surprising announcements however goes to Snoop Dogg who was famously banned from the UK in 2006 after a fight at Heathrow airport.

Other fantastic acts playing this year include MGMT, The Flaming Lips, Pet Shop Boys, The XX, Julian Casablancas and Mos Def.

With a few more slots still left open, expect some more surprises and big names in the coming months before the biggest music festival in the UK.
