The Killers, Stormzy, The Cure, Kylie and Janet Jackson are this year’s Glastonbury headliners, it has been revealed.

They’re among 60 acts joining the music festival, along with Miley Cyrus, Lauryn Hill and Janelle Monae.

Which slots?

Stormzy had previously been announced as the Friday night headliner at the event in Somerset.

The Killers will perform on the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday and The Cure on the Sunday.

Kylie Minogue has previously been announced for the Legend slot.

Janet Jackson returns

Jackson will take to the UK stage following widespread horror over a Channel 4 documentary which made sex abuse allegations against her late brother Michael.

The Jackson family recently said she has not publicly defended the King Of Pop because she does not want to give more “energy” to the allegations.

More big names, including George Ezra, The Chemical Brothers, Vampire Weekend and Tame Impala have been unveiled in a post on Twitter.

Other huge names performing

Other names announced in the first line-up poster include Christine And The Queens, Bastille, Hozier, Sigrid, Snow Patrol, Anne-Marie, Years And Years, Hot Chip, Sheryl Crow and Kate Tempest.

Sir Paul McCartney has been rumoured to be on the bill in June.

Sold out in under an hour

Tickets for the event sold out in just over half an hour.

There was no event last summer, with Glastonbury, at Worthy Farm in Somerset, having a “fallow year”.

This year the festival will be 26 to 30 June.
