Muse have been confirmed to be headlining Glastonbury Festival this year, joining previously announced headliners, Coldplay.
The three-piece band, who came out on top in the rock album category at this year’s Grammy awards, announced their upcoming festival slot on Twitter earlier today. Come June 2016, Muse will be the first band ever to headline the Pyramid stage on all three nights.
Their last headline gig at the festival focused mainly on the music, which is most unlike the group, who normally have ambitious set-ups – such as the laser-beam satellites and flying saucers that they used in their 2010 tour.
Matt Bellamy and co. first played Glastonbury in 2004, and returned in 2010, where they headlined both nights. This will be their third headlining gig.
Glastonbury Festival will take place at Worthy Farm, from 22nd-26th June 2016. More information and ticket details can be found on their website.
