Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA to headline Glastonbury 2024

Written by on March 14, 2024

Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA will headline this year’s Glastonbury festival.

This year’s edition marks the first time in the iconic British festival’s history that two of the three headline slots are female. The coveted “legend slot” will also be female, with Shania Twain hitting the stage in the famed Sunday afternoon spot.

Dua, who announced her third album Radical Optimism on Wednesday night, previously performed on the smaller John Peel stage when she played Glastonbury seven years ago. She will now headline the main Pyramid Stage on Friday 28 June.

“FRIDAY NIGHT PYRAMID STAGE HEADLINE!!!!” she wrote alongside the poster on Instagram on Thursday. “I have dreamt of this moment all my life. Something that lived only in my wildest dreams and highest manifestations !!! I am so excited to see you all in my favourite place on earth and make it a night to remember!! Thank you (organiser) @emily_eavis ~ GLASTO 4EVER.”

With their upcoming set, Coldplay will become the first act to headline the Pyramid Stage five times, following performances in 2002, 2005, 2011 and 2016.

SZA headline’s slot marks her first Glastonbury appearance.

In an interview with BBC News, Shania said she was “over the moon” to be playing the “legend slot” and relieved she no longer had to keep it a secret.

“Everyone always talks about it being the pinnacle of festival slots,” she shared. “I’m doing the hits – the songs that everybody knows and the versions that everybody knows. It’s just going to be a big sing-along party.”

Other acts to play the Pyramid Stage this year include LCD Soundsystem, Little Simz, Burna Boy, PJ Harvey, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Kiwanuka, Janelle Monae, Paloma Faith and K-pop group Seventeen. More will be announced in the coming weeks.

Glastonbury festival runs between 26 and 30 June.
