Exciting! With Glastonbury Festival returning in 2024, here’s everything you need to know about the exciting headliners and how to get tickets and when
Who are the rumored headliners?
Madonna, Dua Lipa and Coldplay are the first headliners expected to take to the stage next year, The Mail on Sunday exclusively revealed.
After months of discussion, the three iconic singers will reportedly appear on the Pyramid Stage, although the official lineup has not yet been revealed.
A festival insider said: ‘It’s the dream line-up, a brilliant mix of different music and different atmospheres. Then of course you have Madonna on the last night, which will be epic.’
When she takes to the stage in 2024, it will be the first time Madonna, 65, has performed at the festival, which is being held at Worthy Farm, Somerset. When 28-year-old Dua performs, it will be her first headlining performance.

Coldplay would be in the running to headline on Saturday.
Coldplay has headlined four times before: in 2002, 2005, 2011 and 2016.
Glastonbury bosses have been accused of choosing too many male acts as headliners.
Last year’s lineup was all male, with Arctic Monkeys, Guns N’ Roses and Sir Elton John taking the top spots.

According to the Mail On Sunday, Madonna is said to be in the running to close the music extravaganza on the final night.
Speaking last month, organizer Emily Eavis, daughter of Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, revealed that a large team of American stars, believed to be Madonna, had contacted her and said she was free.
She said: ‘2024 is still kind of up in the air, and I thought it was starting to take shape, and last week I just got a phone call, and this is what happens if you wait a little bit longer, because a lot of times we’re fully booked from July.
“This year we’re keeping it a little longer and last week I got a call from a really big American artist saying this person is going to be back next year, and I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is incredible.’ Thank God we had the chance.’

British singing sensation Dua is said to be in line for Friday’s top act, although the official line-up has not yet been confirmed.
Earlier this year, Dua was embroiled in controversy after failing to join Sir Elton John on the Glastonbury stage for their duet Cold Heart.
Fans claimed there was a falling out between the two, although Dua insisted she was just working in New York.
Emily previously said about the lack of female headliners: “I’ve always been very passionate about the gender divide (in festival line-ups) and I think our problem really was that I’d been so outspoken about it that it having a The year of no women made people a little angry – or some people.
“And we had a female – she pulled out and we replaced them with Guns N’ Roses. But everyone knows it’s at the top of my list.
‘It’s difficult with female artists because there aren’t enough headliners. But we also create them. We put the bands and female artists on smaller stages and let them come through all the time.
And who knows? Next year we might get two. And I can definitely say that the Legend is female.”

Will they both return? Earlier this year, Dua was embroiled in controversy after failing to join Sir Elton John on the Glastonbury stage for their duet Cold Heart.
