Coldplay, Dua Lipa and SZA will headline Glastonbury 2024, it has just been confirmed. In addition, Shania Twain will play the legends slot.

A post on the festival’s official website reads: “Dua Lipa makes her Pyramid Stage debut as our Friday night headliner, on a Friday bill also featuring Glastonbury veterans LCD Soundsystem and PJ Harvey.

“Coldplay will make their first Pyramid Stage appearance since 2016 on the Saturday night, with the only European festival appearance of their record-breaking current world tour, in the process beating their previous joint headliner record (with The Cure) and becoming the first act to headline Glastonbury five times. Little Simz comes back to Glastonbury to play her biggest slot yet immediately before Coldplay.

“Our Sunday night headliner is SZA, the multiple Grammy and Brits winner – and quite possibly the hottest hip hop / R&B act on the planet – who will make her Glastonbury debut following Sunday sets from Afrobeats megastar Burna Boy and Janelle Monáe.

“This year’s Sunday teatime legend will be Shania Twain, who makes her first trip to Worthy Farm for what promises to be one of the most popular sets of the weekend.”

Other well-known performers including Avril Lavigne, Jessie Ware, Cyndi Lauper and Camila Cabello join the bill alongside Dua Lipa and SZA, bumping up the the Glastonbury 2024 female contingent.

Last year organisers were criticised for having all-male headliners, with Arctic Monkeys, Guns ‘N’ Roses and Sir Elton John, who performing his last-ever UK gig, topping the bill.

Other Pyramid performers include Little Simz preceding Coldplay, plus LCD Soundsystem, Burna Boy, PJ Harvey, Cyndi Lauper, Janelle Monáe and Michael Kiwanuka. Thirteen-member boyband Seventeen become the first K-pop band to perform on the Pyramid stage.

On the Other stage, Idles follow the chart-topping success of recent album Tangk with a headline slot, joined by Disclosure and the National. UK rap is represented by D-Block Europe who recently played four nights at London’s O2 Arena plus Headie One and the Streets. Alternative bands include The Last Dinner Party and Two Door Cinema Club while there’s a broad spread of pop including by Camila Cabello, Anne-Marie and Avril Lavigne.

This year’s festival sold out 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.

Glastonbury 2024 which hosts more than 3,000 acts and around 200,000 people on site, will take place from 26-30 June.
