The Cure, The Killers & Stormzy Set To Headline Glastonbury 2019

The Cure and The Killers will join Stormzy as headliners of Glastonbury in June.

The Cure and The Killers have been named as the final headliners at Glastonbury this year.

This year will be The Cure's fourth time headlining the United Kingdom festival, which they first played in 1986. Other artists revealed as part of Friday's 2019 lineup poster include Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus, Tame Impala, Vampire Weekend, Ms Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae, Christine and the Queens, Two Door Cinema Club, Cat Power, Wu-Tang Clan, Kamasi Washington, Sheryl Crow, Interpol, Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile & The Violators, and many more.

The Killers previously topped the bill in 2007; while Kylie was booked for the top slot in 2005, before breast cancer forced her to pull out. The band is now tied with Coldplay as the most frequent headliners of Glastonbury.

Believe it or not, more acts will be added to the bill at a later date.

Glastonbury has worked towards gender parity in its lineup this year, with 42 percent of the now announced acts being female (although all three headliners are male).

Speculation around The Cure headlining the festival has been rife since the band announced a run of European festival appearances earlier this year, plus a series of dates to celebrate the 30th anniversary of seminal 1989 album Disintegration.

Tickets for the 2019 event sold out in minutes back in October, but fans who didn't manage to nab them will get a second chance with the annual resale, taking place in late April.
