Get ready for a history-making Glastonbury this year! The festival lineup is finally here, and it’s packed with big names and a record-breaking female presence.

Dua Lipa, SZA, and Coldplay are topping the bill, with Shania Twain taking the coveted Legends slot on Sunday. This marks the first time Glastonbury has had two out of three female headliners, a major shift after the all-male lineup in 2023.

Dua Lipa returns to Glastonbury after a seven-year absence, this time gracing the prestigious Pyramid Stage. Fresh off her electrifying performances at the Brits and Grammys, Lipa is set to deliver a night to remember, drawing from her highly anticipated new album “Radical Optimism.” Remember the name – “Radical Optimism” is set to be a genre-bending record inspired by psychedelia, trip-hop, and Britpop.

SZA, the “hottest hip-hop/ R&B act on the planet” according to organisers, is also making her Pyramid Stage debut. Having dominated the charts with her album “SOS” and the smash hit “Kill Bill,” SZA is a rising star with momentum on her side. Don’t miss her set – it could be a show-stealer!

Coldplay, Glastonbury veterans with four previous headline slots under their belt, will return to break the record for most Glastonbury headline performances. While frontman Chris Martin previously expressed reservations due to online criticism, Glastonbury is their only European stop on their record-breaking world tour.

Shania Twain, the legendary country music icon, brings her Las Vegas residency magic to Glastonbury. Known for hits like “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!” and “You’re Still The One,” Twain promises a high-energy sing-along party in the legends slot.

But Glastonbury isn’t just about the headliners! The lineup boasts a stellar selection of artists across various genres. Here are some must-see acts:

Pyramid Stage: Look out for LCD Soundsystem, PJ Harvey, Cyndi Lauper, Janelle Monae, Michael Kiwanuka, and Olivia Dean.
