Glastonbury reveals Stormzy and Katy Perry performing this summer

For those lucky enough to have scooped up tickets for this year's Glastonbury festival, running for five nights from Wednesday 21st- Sunday 25th June, the line up seems to just keep getting better and better!

Stormzy could barely contain his excitement at playing the festival this year

On Thursday, Glastonbury organisers revealed their first line-up for this year's festival and Katy Perry, Stormzy, The XX, Biffy Clyro and Solange will all be joining headliners Ed Sheeran, Radiohead and Foo Fighters for an epic few days at Worthy Farm. 

Pop princess, Katy Perry shared her happiness at playing the prestigious British festival for the first time over Twitter, tweeting an image of the line up captioned: "I can has tea and crumpets!?"


Although she later acknowledged the often wet and muddy festival conditions on her Instagram account posting: "can't wait to see you and hopefully catch a cold lol @glastofest" - better get a good pair of wellies Katy!

Meanwhile, grime artist Stormzy could barely contain his excitement at playing the festival this year tweeting: "GLASTONBURY 2017! Let's go. #GSAP #MERKY" 


If this year's Brit Awards back in February are anything to go by, we can expect some top performances from Katy, Stormzy and of course Glastonbury headliner Ed Sheeran at the festival this summer. Katy Perry teamed up with Skip Marley to perform her new single Chained To The Rhythm with a stage full of dancing houses and two giant skeletons, but it was Ed and Stormzy who stole the show with a special performance of Sheeran's Shape Of You.

Despite missing out on the Best Breakthrough award, which was collected by Rag N' Bone Man (also playing Glasto this year), Stormzy was there to offer a guest verse during Sheeran's performance.

Acts are known for bringing out special guests onto the Pyramid stage at Glasto, with Barry Gibb joining Coldplay last year for two great Bee Gee covers, so fingers crossed Ed will invite Stormzy to join him again, this time gracing the Pyramid stage.

The artist from Croydon released his debut album 'Gang Signs & Prayer' just after the Brits on Friday, February 24th, breaking chart records with the first grime album to reach number one on the UK Album Charts. 

Speaking to The Guardian after the album dropped, Stormzy said: "This album is good, this is incredible, this is heartfelt, this had been put together so well, so strategically, so neatly, so creatively - so respect me the same way you're going to respect a Frank Ocean or an Adele."

With new albums from both Stormzy and Sheeran this year and performances from Dizzee Rascal, Royal Blood and Wiley, it seems certain that Glastonbury is going to be a cracker!
