Over recent weeks, the festival have been sharing stage-by-stage announcements, including the news that the festival’s towering Arcadia spider will be replaced by a giant dragonfly, that the Genosys stage will return to Block9 and the end of The Rabbit Hole after 17 years at the festival, replaced by new venues The Wishing Well and Scissors in The Park.

Elsewhere, festival organiser Emily Eavis has revealed that the festival is planning to take a fallow year in 2026.

This year’s festival will also see headline Pyramid Stage sets streamed globally for the first time ever.

Fans worldwide will be able to watch Coldplay and Dua Lipa headline the Pyramid Stage worldwide on the BBC’s website, on Saturday and Friday nights respectively.
