Coldplay to head Glastonbury's Sunday night line-up

Coldplay to Headline Glastonbury This Summer

Coldplay will be headlining the Sunday night slot at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

The four-piece announced the gig on social media with a picture of the festival's famous Pyramid Stage mid-construction and a sign saying "Sunday, June 26" with hot air balloon imagery from their new album A Head Full Of Dreams.

Coldplay will be the first band to headline at Worthy Farm in Somerset four times, after outings in 2002, 2005 and 2011.

It follows their performance at the Super Bowl 50 half-time show when the band played a selection of their greatest hits and were joined on stage by Beyonce and Bruno Mars.

After their Super Bowl performance, their latest album jumped to number one in the charts, having been kept off the top spot by fellow Brit Adele's 25 when it was first released in December.

Coldplay are the first headliners announced for the festival, although Jeff Lynne's ELO has been confirmed for the Sunday teatime slot.

Glastonbury Festival will run from June 23-26.
