Dua Lipa, Coldplay, Shania Twain to Headline Glastonbury Festival 2024

Must read

The British festival is set for June 26-30

Glastonbury Festival has revealed its 2024 lineup and Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and SZA have topped the bill. The British music festival will also feature Shania Twain in the coveted “legend slot” on Sunday afternoon. The lineup also includes LCD Soundsystem, Little Simz, Burna Boy, PJ Harvey, Idles, The National, and Jessie Ware.

Coldplay will become the first act to headline Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage five times, and boy band Seventeen will become the first K-pop group to perform on the stage. Dua Lipa previously played Glastonbury in 2017, while SZA has never performed at the festival before. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Twain told the BBC that she was “over the moon” to be part of the bill. “Everyone always talks about it being the pinnacle of festival slots,” Twain said. “The only advice everyone gives me is to bring my wellies.” She added, “I’m doing the hits — the songs that everybody knows and the versions that everybody knows. It’s just going to be a big sing-along party.”
