Coldplay to headline Glastonbury Festival 15 February 2011 10:17 am Band confirmed for Saturday night Pyramid slot
Good morning. It's just been confirmed on the Glastonbury Festival website that Coldplay will headline the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night at this year's festival, on June 25th.
"Coldplay have played such a major part in the Festival over the last 10 years or so," said Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis. "As their popularity grew around the world I was so proud of them. This is the triumphant return of a band that everyone here feels part of. They're one of the greatest phenomena to grow from these fields."
This will be the band's first appearance at the legendary festival since 2005. Tickets for the Festival sold out months ago, but a limited resale of cancelled tickets is expected in April (though you do need to be registered in order to buy tickets).
