The line-up for Glastonbury 2024 has finally arrived, with the likes of Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA taking top billing down on Worthy Farm.

Country icon Shania Twain will also play the Legends Slot, while the Other Stage will take in headline slots from IDLES, Disclosure and The National.

The confirmation comes after Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis confirmed last week that festival-goers could expect a full line-up within days.

Other notable acts on this year’s line-up include K-Pop group SEVENTEEN, who become the first K-Pop act to play the Pyramid Stage and a slot for pop icon Cyndi Lauper.

It’s the first run of acts, but organisers have promised that “so many more artists, stages and performance areas” will be announced in the coming months.

Coldplay’s performance will see them make history as the first act to top the bill at Glastonbury five times, following their headline sets in 2002, 2005, 2011 and 2016 – prompting speculation that a new album could be on the way.

Dua Lipa, meanwhile, will no doubt be showcasing music from her upcoming third album Radical Optimism, which will land in full on May 3. It follows 2020’s huge Future Nostalgia.

“FRIDAY NIGHT PYRAMID STAGE HEADLINE!!!! I have dreamt of this moment all my life,” said Dua Lipa.

“Something that lived only in my wildest dreams and highest manifestations !!! I am so excited to see you all in my favourite place on earth and make it a night to remember!!”

Tickets for this year’s Festival are sold out, but a customary Spring resale date will be confirmed once the line-up is revealed.

In anticipation of this, Glastonbury released an official warning in January against bogus ticket sellers.

In addition, they stressed that “some of the Festival’s official partners may run officially endorsed competitions in the coming months” but as of yesterday, “there are currently NO legitimate ticket contests running for Glastonbury 2024”.

As has been the case for over a decade, successful tickets buyers were required to pre-register with official photo ID, which was initially introduced to cut down on ticket touts. Each attendee’s ticket comes with a photo of their face printed on it.

An exact date for the 2024 re-sale is yet to be announced, but it usually takes place in the spring of each year.
