Glastonbury announces “big finale” line-up

The world’s most-famous festival has announced its full line-up, with organiser Emily Eavis describing it as the “big finale” for the event.

The most high profile new addition to the three-day event, which will take place from Friday 24 June until 26 June, is Morrissey, who will make his first appearance in seven years supporting U2 on the Pyramid stage on Friday evening.

Paul Simon, Elbow, Queens of The Stone Age, Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Laura Marling and blues legend BB King are among the acts to join previously announced headliners Coldplay, Beyonce, and U2.

Emily Eavis told BBC 6 Music that the bill was intended to represent acts for this year and next, when the festival will take a year off.

“Subconsciously, you think about the fact there isn’t going to be a festival next year, so you try to get as much in as possible that will represent both years,” she said.

“It’s like a big finale. By the time we come back, there’ll be a lot of music around. This is like the big sing-off.”

For those of you lucky enough to have scored tickets to the sold-out event, start planning what you’ll see when. Glastonbury’s official web site displays the full line-up of more than 300 bands and countless DJs and dance sets, split across 20 stages, tents, and outdoor performance stages.
