Guns N Roses and Arctic Monkeys have joined previously announced headliners Elton John and Lizzo on the Glastonbury Festival bill.
Glastonbury Festival adds Guns N’ Roses, Arctic Monkeys
Guns N’ Roses and Arctic Monkeys will join Elton John as headliners at the Glastonbury Festival in June, organisers say, drawing attention to the largely male line-up of the event’s biggest performers this year.
The festival’s official poster gave United States rapper Lizzo joint headline billing but she was the lone, high-profile female performer among the main acts this year.
Rapper Lil Nas X and British folk singer Yusuf/Cat Stevens will perform at Worthy Farm in southern England, alongside Fatboy Slim, Blondie, Nigerian singer Wizkid and dozens of other performers, many of who have not yet been announced.
Organiser Emily Eavis, daughter of Michael Eavis who founded the festival on the family farm in 1970, said the music industry should invest in more female musicians to create future headliners.
