Lana Del Rey has suggested she could pull out of Glastonbury following the festival’s line-up announcement.
The singer, 37, is one of the acts revealed on Friday to be part of the line-up but was unhappy with the way she was announced.
Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses were announced as the final two headliners, with Sir Elton John at the top of the bill.
But Lana pointed out that she would be playing top billing on the Other Stage, which Glastonbury didn’t mention.
She also appeared at the very bottom of the poster with over 20 names of other acts ahead of her.

Lana showed her annoyance by responding to the official Glastonbury post on Instagram, writing, “Thank you for announcing I was headlining the other stage. Thumbs up.’
According to reports, she also took to her own private Instagram to share the poster, adding, “Well, I’m actually headlining the 2nd leg.”
Then she hinted that she might withdraw and said, “But since there was no consideration to announce that we’ll see.”
Her fans sided with her and responded to Glastonbury’s post asking why Lana wasn’t listed higher.
One of them said, “Why isn’t Lana in the top row?” wtf’.
While another echoed, “Why isn’t Lana headlining the main stage.”
And a third agreed, writing, “Imagine not mentioning Lana in the caption, she’s the greatest of headliners.”

It comes after Glastonbury Festival organizer Emily Eavis has spoken out in defense of the ‘boring’ line-up of all male acts.
The lineup includes Lizzo, Lewis Capaldi, The War On Drugs, Christine And The Queens, Thundercat, Lil Nas X, Carly Rae Jepsen and Manic Street Preachers.
Still, fans were quick to notice that there was no booked female talent.
Of the 30 main acts announced since 2010, only four are female – Beyonce, Adele, Billie Eilish, Florence and the Machine – with Emily claiming it’s due to a “problem in the pipeline.”
She said The protector: ‘We are doing our best, so the pipeline needs to be developed. This starts way back with the record companies, radio. I can scream as loud as I want, but we need to get everyone on board.”
She added that they “remain fully focused on balancing our bill.” It’s not just about gender, it’s about every aspect of diversity.’
Emily then promised to have two female headliners next year, saying that Lizzo – who will be performing just before Guns N’ Roses – would have been booked to headline this year, but the positions had already been locked in by the male acts.
Still, fans were unimpressed and took to Twitter to share: ‘@glastonbury do better!!! All male headliners? You can’t even blame a lack of talent, there is an overwhelming WEALTH of amazing women to choose from’;
‘Always brilliant, but that’s not the best line-up. Elton should be Saturday night. Would be great to see ACDC headlining for a year. Eminem. Madonna. Phil Collins for the legendary slot.’; ‘Absolutely shocking compared to other years’;

‘@glastonbury @ArcticMonkeys and @gunsnroses Worst Glastonbury lineup in years or ever’; “Situations like this year’s Glastonbury line-up are a direct symptom of the industry’s failure to support female artists from the start. They get on the smaller stages, on the radio, on live stages.’
‘No guys you don’t understand, Glastonbury HAD to book Guns N Roses to headline a festival in 2023 because there just isn’t a single woman in music’; During Women’s History Month, Glastonbury Festival announced an all-male poster. In 2023. Tell me why we don’t need this month again.’;
Storzy wasn’t big festival headliner status when he did Glastonbury and look what he did with the platform. Seems unusually retarded to literally not give any woman the same chance.’; ‘Just a little boring’;
