Beyonce to Headline Glastonbury Festival

Posted by at 2:57 pm on February 10, 2011

Beyonce is set to be a headliner at UK’s Glastonbury Festival this summer. The five-day festival, billed as the largest green-field music and performing arts festival in the world, will play to an expected audience of 200,000, on Worthy Farm, Pilton in South West England at the end of June. The global superstar will be the headliner on the last day of the festival on Sunday, June 26, for an electrifying 90-minute set on the Pyramid Stage.

Beyonce, who is currently in the studio working on new music, attended Glastonbury Festival in 2008 as a fan and is excited to return as a headliner. “This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform there. Everyone who attends is really appreciative of music and is in such a good mood that entire weekend,” she said. “I’m pumped just thinking about that huge audience and soaking up their energy.”

The recently-released, I Am…World Tour full-length concert DVD, with its never-before-seen, intimate footage of the star around the world, quickly became the best selling concert DVD of 2010 in the US.
