Pop icon Beyonce has released a statement today confirming her booking at this year’s Glastonbury festival, after gossip website Holy Moly linked her with the spot earlier this week.
Last year, organiser Michael Eavis spoke of a ‘US superstar’ who had been booked for the event, causing a host of big names, including Madonna and Prince, to be suggested as possible headliners.
Over the past few weeks, reports claiming Beyonce is the identity of Eavis’ superstar gathered pace, and now the former Destiny’s Child singer has broken her silence to speak of her delight at performing at ‘the biggest festival in the world’.
“This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform there,” Beyonce said. “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.”
Taking place between June 24th-26th this year, rock heavyweights U2 and Coldplay were named as Glastonbury’s other two headliners by Holy Moly, but have yet to be officially announced.
