Glastonbury headline slot announced

Band to top Pyramid Stage bill for a record-breaking fourth time

Good morning. Coldplay today became the first headline act to be confirmed for Glastonbury Festival 2016. They will top the Pyramid Stage bill on Sunday, June 26th.

The band will become the first artists to headline Glastonbury on four occasions, following previous Pyramid Stage headline appearances in 2002, 2005 and 2011. Their 2011 set was later voted the Top Glastonbury Moment of the event’s long history by BBC Radio listeners.

The Glastonbury performance will be Coldplay’s only festival show of this year’s A Head Full Of Dreams Tour. The band have already sold more than two million tickets for their run of stadium dates in Europe, the U.S. and Latin America. The entire tour – which includes four nights at London’s Wembley Stadium – is now close to selling out.
