Adele Will Headline Glastonbury 2016, Joins Muse and Coldplay at Festival
Adele is officially slated to headline Glastonbury 2016 and will join Muse and Coldplay at the festival.
It had been rumored that she was set to headline for months, but the singer officially confirmed the news from the stage at London’s O2 arena this past Friday night (March 18).
“Don’t tell anyone I told you,” she said according to Billboard. “I think it’s a secret.”
Following Adele’s announcement, the festival itself soon confirmed the news that she was set to headline. The singer’s appearance at Glastonbury will mark another milestone, as it is her first time performing at a large scale outdoor festival.
“To the people who say I am too boring to headline,” she reportedly told the concert-goers in London. “You’re more f*cking boring for moaning to me about headlining.”
In addition to Adele, other headliners will include Muse and Coldplay. PJ Harvey and Jeff Lynne’s ELO have also signed on to be a part of Glastonbury. It has also been reported that there will be a tribute to fallen legend David Bowie taking place at the festival, with an on-screen presentation of his performance on the main stage in 2000.

Her performance at Glastonbury will be the final one of her European tour in support of latest album, 25, after which she will continue on to the North American leg. The North American leg of her tour for 25 will run until November.
In other Adele news, during her tour the singer took some time off to visit a young fan named Rebecca Gibney who had been too sick to attend any of her concerts. The fan’s mother, Tracey Gibney, described the online campaign for her Adele to send her daughter a message, but the singer instead decided to meet her.
