The murmurs have proven true.
Adele is heading to the 2016 Glastonbury Festival!
The Brit bred superstar has formally been revealed as headliner of day 2 of the multi-day extravaganza, which kicks off July 22nd and runs through to the 26th.
In doing so, she joins a list of previous headliners that includes both Beyonce and Kanye West.
News broke via the Adele herself at her sold-out show at London’s O2 Arena moments ago.
After revealing the tea, she hilariously gushed:
“Don’t tell anyone I told you I think it’s a secret.”
Shortly after, the Glastonbury Twitter account confirmed, writing:
As @Adele just announced live on stage in London, she will headline Saturday night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival!

The booking, which sees the songstress join previously announced bill-toppers Coldplay and Muse, fittingly caps off the European leg of her ‘Adele Live’ tour. After Glasto, she’ll bring the box-office blockbuster to North America for another sold-out run.
Since its November release, ’25’ – the star’s third studio album – has sold over 19 million copies worldwide.
Tidbit: Not that it’s even needed at this junction, but we’d love to see another song receive the [proper] single treatment in a “cherry on top” capacity.
