According to Glastonbury Festival’s Twitter, Adele has announced that she will headline the festival’s Saturday night. She revealed the news during her performance at London’s O2 Arena:
“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 fucking boring for moaning about me headlining.”
Adele has been hesitant in the past about playing Glastonbury Festival because of the size. She commented last October, “The crowds are too big – I don’t know if I could do it.”
Though the 25 singer is ready now. Adele joins Coldplay and Muse, who are respectively headlining the festival, in Somerset U.K., June 22-26 this year. The full lineup has not been released yet.
The choice to put a major pop act as a major headliner in the festival has upset several longtime fans, saying that the festival is heading down a more pop-focused path.
@Daily_Express I agree totally! Adele is a Pop music dirge factory… It's not what Glastonbury is about.
