It has been confirmed by Columbia Records that American Singer Beyonce Knowles will headline this year's Glastonbury festival closing the show on Sunday June 26th.

Beyonce's husband Jay-Z headlined the festival back in 2008 leading to many complaints by those who attended the festival as they felt that an American Hip-Hop artist was not in keeping with the spirit of the festival.

Tickets for the festival went on sale last October and sold out within 4 hours without a finalised line-up.

The Glastonbury festival, which is held in Pilton and not in Glastonbury, suffered a setback last year when U2 pulled out because of an injury suffered by it's lead singer Bono. That meant Gorillaz had to step in as headline act.

But Beyonce is very excited about appearing at the festival and said "This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform there. Everyone who attends is really appreciative of music and is in such a good mood that entire weekend. I'm pumped just thinking about that huge audience and soaking up their energy."

The dumbing down of our culture continues…..
