The Cure and The Killers have been announced as the headliners for Glastonbury 2019, joining previously announced headliner Stromzy, playing Worthy Farm this June.
With more acts and attractions yet to be revealed across more than 100 stages, Glastonbury goers can expect sets from Janet Jackson, Miley Cyrus, The Chemical Brothers, Loyle Carner, Lauryn Hill, Christine & The Queens, Two Door Cinema Club and Jorja Smith.

Although the three Pyramid Stage headliners are all male, 42% of the currently-announced line-up is female, highlighting the festival’s commitment to the PRS led keychange initiative encouraging 50/50 gender balance across festival line ups by 2020.
There is a strong showing for the crop of young, game-changing pop stars: Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Rosalía, Sigrid, Shura and King Princess are set to perform.
Live electronic music is represented well by Maribou State, Jon Hopkins and Hot Chip – with Glastonbury’s extensive DJ line up yet TBA.
The Cure’s headline performance is their first since 1995 and their fourth overall, meaning they tie with Coldplay as the festival’s most-frequent headliners.
The Killers previously topped the bill in 2007; while Kylie was booked for the top slot in 2005, before breast cancer forced her to pull out.
