With stars including Little Simz, Avril Lavigne, Jessie Ware, Janelle Monae, Cyndi Lauper, PJ Harvey and Camila Cabello on the bill alongside Dua Lipa, SZA and Twain, it is a line-up filled with female acts – and the first time ever that two out of the three headline performers will be women.

For Lipa, 28, it will be her Pyramid Stage debut – and comes fresh off the back of Brits and Grammys performances earlier this year, and the day after she revealed details of her first new album in four years.

“FRIDAY NIGHT PYRAMID STAGE HEADLINE!!!!,” the star posted on Instagram. “I have dreamt of this moment all my life. Something that lived only in my wildest dreams and highest manifestations !!! I am so excited to see you all in my favourite place on earth and make it a night to remember!!”

‘Another jewel in my crown’

It will also be a debut for US star SZA, who is “quite possibly the hottest hip-hop/ R&B act on the planet”, organisers said, while for Coldplay the 2024 slot means they become the first act to lead the bill five times, having headlined previously in 2002, 2005, 2011 and 2016.

They will move ahead of The Cure, who they previously jointly held the record with.

Five-time Grammy-winning Canadian star Twain, who has sold more than 100 million records and is best known for hits including Man! I Feel Like A Woman!, You’re Still The One, and That Don’t Impress Me Much, shared a video post on Instagram saying she was getting her wellies, raincoat and cowboy hat ready.

“Another jewel in my crown!” she wrote. “I feel so honoured and so excited about this one! Thinking about what to wear already… Let’s make history this summer with this ultimate dream performance.”

The strong female line-up comes after organisers were criticised for having all-male headliners last year, with Arctic Monkeys, Guns ‘N’ Roses and Sir Elton John, performing his last-ever UK gig, topping the bill.

Which other acts have been announced?

Other performers confirmed for this year include Idles, LCD Soundsystem, Michael Kiwanuka, Disclosure, The National, Burna Boy, Bloc Party, Jungle and Keane.

The Streets, Olivia Dean, Paloma Faith, Anne-Marie, Nia Archives, Ghetts, Orbital, Two Door Cinema Club, Sampha, Bombay Bicycle Club, Nothing But Thieves, Sugababes, Fontaines DC, Arlo Parks and Brits rising star winners The Last Dinner Party are also on the bill.

Little Simz, who is among the acts announced for the Pyramid Stage, shared the Glastonbury poster and said: “The one and only festival I’ll be at this summer. On the Pyramid, on the farm. Big big glasto you knowwww what a wow. See you there.”

“Worthy Farm. We’re coming back!” Sugababes shared alongside a “We’re playing Glastonbury” poster, while Avril Lavigne, who will perform on the Other Stage, shared a similar post and told fans: “England see you in June!”

“Super excited to announce we will be playing Glastonbury this summer,” said Jungle. “Can’t wait to see you all there.”

D-Block Europe, Headie One, Jamie XX, Gossip, Sleaford Mods, London Grammar, Yard Act and Declan McKenna also feature on the line-up.

Sharing the news, organiser Emily Eavis said there would be “even more to come over the coming weeks”.

And with the festival known for pulling off surprises, no doubt there will be a few secret acts to be found when the festival takes place.

Tickets for this year’s Glastonbury were snapped up in under an hour when they went on sale in November. A resale of any cancelled or returned tickets is expected at some time in April.

The event, which hosts more than 3,000 acts and around 200,000 people on site, will take place from 26-30 June.
