Adele To Headline Glastonbury 2016

The '25' megastar revealed the news in the most casual fashion.

Adele will join the headliner bill at Glastonbury 2016 this summer.

Despite once ruling out the idea of playing the bill, because "the crowds are too big," the 25 megastar will continue her 2016 dominance as final headliner for this year's Glastonbury Festival.

During a recent show at the O2 Arena, where she is in the middle of a six-night residency, Adele broke the news, announcing that she will headline the Saturday night show at Worthy Farm. As NME reports, the singer said, “I wanted to do it last year but my record wasn’t ready.”

As far as critics are concerned, Adele added, "To the people who say I am too boring to headline, you’re more fucking boring for moaning about me headlining.”

The “Hello” singer will headline the festival’s revered Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night (June 25), following a performance from fellow Glasto headliners Muse on the Friday (June 24) and before Coldplay (June 26) on Sunday.

Glastonbury 2016 takes place June 24-26.
