The famous Glastonbury festival has taken a sharp turn for list of headliners. From previous years we’ve seen the likes of Beyonce, Kanye West, and Jay-Z grace the stage! This year 26-year old Adele revealed news that she will be headlining this year’s event at her recent gig lastweek at the London O2.


The singer asked the crowd: “Whose going to Glastonbury this year? See you there. I’ll be there. I’ll be headlining on the Saturday night this year. I wanted to do it last year but my record wasn’t ready. And to the people who say I am too boring to headline, you’re more f****** boring for moaning about me headlining.”


Well that certainly told us a thing or 2… ! Adele claimed in recent times that she would never play the festival because she is too scared of the Glasto’s massive crowds.


“I think I have made myself pretty clear on Glastonbury,” she said. “The crowds are too big – I don’t know if I could do it.”


It seems the festival’s boss, Michael Eavis who’s been desperate to sign her for years is finally almost sealing the deal.

Glastonbury took to twitter to also announce the news:



Festival organiser Emily Eavis expressed her praise and keeness on Adele headlining after being asked what she thought of the deal of having her headline the festival. She replied, “she would wouldn’t she? It would be great to get her.”


She also added, “We love Adele. She’s an incredible artist and brilliantly honest and funny and real and that’s what everybody loves about her. She’s a great example because she doesn’t put up any pretence.”


What do you think? Good choice or not?
