Beyonce confirmed as a Glastonbury headline act
Date Posted: 11/02/11
Former Destiny's Child singer Beyonce will be one of the headline acts at Glastonbury Festival this summer, it has been announced.
The US star will appear on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday June 26th, at the end of the four-day event.
Organisers have yet to unveil the remainder of the 2011 line-up, with those booking short breaks snapping up tickets in a matter of hours when they went on sale in October last year.
"I'm pumped just thinking about that huge audience and soaking up their energy. This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform there. Everyone who attends is really appreciative of music and is in such a good mood that entire weekend," said Beyonce.
According to the Sun, The Libertines are planning on reforming to play at Glastonbury Festival.
A source told the newspaper that there are no signs of new songs, but the group realise that they could "take a nice payday" by playing each summer.
