Katy Perry among 86 artists announced for Glastonbury Festival 2017

32 year-old pop superstar joins Solange, Barry Gibb, the xx, Biffy Clyro, Stormzy and the Jacksons down on Worthy Farm as the latest artists confirmed for this year’s Glastonbury festival.

The ‘Firework’ hitmaker who will make her debut and the grime superstar are set to perform at the UK’s iconic music event between June 23 – June 25, joining headliners Radiohead, Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters and many more.

Also in the line-up is Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb, The xx, Royal Blood, Biffy Clyro, The National, Chic, Major Lazer, Lorde, The Jacksons, The Flaming Lips, Emeli Sande, Halsey, George Ezra, Kaiser Chiefs and many more.

In her excitement about performing at this year’s Glastonbury, Perry took to her Twitter to ask the organisers of the festival if she can have tea and crumpets.

Lorde, whose second album is due this spring, had teased an appearance during a Radio 1 interview, saying she did “love a farm”, and she will indeed be down at Worthy Farm. On a bill featuring plenty of notable female artists, she is joined by Solange, Laura Marling and Haim, among many others.

For those seeking brooding darkness, the National and the xx lead the indie legions, with Warpaint, Sleaford Mods, Ride, Mark Lanegan and Alt-J also appearing. Rock fans – at a festival that traditionally does not embrace the heavy – get the chance to see Biffy Clyro and Royal Blood.

Grime day on the Silver Hayes stage was one of the highlights of last year’s festival, and that genre is strongly represented again this year, with appearances by Stormzy, Kano, Boy Better Know and grime godfathers Wiley and Dizzee Rascal.

Michael Eavis has said the long-term plan is to put on Variety Bazaar every fifth year, in Glastonbury’s fallow year.

Both Eavises – as well as the 135,000 ticketholders, and the tens of thousands who work at the festival – will be hoping for more clement weather than last year, when heavy rain in the run-up to the event caused problems in the car parks, with a spillover effect in the form of massive traffic queues on the approaches to the site, as well as fields of mud on the event itself. Many stages kicked off late on the opening day, as woodchips were dispersed to make the area at the front of the stage safe for fans. Eavis said of the conditions: “I’ve never seen mud like it in my whole life.”
