The UK solo artist will top the Pyramid Stage on Sunday 25th June for the first time.
Yesterday evening, organisers at Glastonbury Festival confirmed that British singer songwriter Ed Sheeran would headline the final night of the Somerset festival.
The singer, who has been heavily rumoured for the slot over the last few months, released his third album Divide at the start of the month. Since then, all 16 album tracks made it into the top 20 of the charts in a week that was dominated by the artist.
The slot sees Sheeran making a big step up from 2011 in which he played Glastonbury’s Croissant Neuf stage and will be joining already confirmed headliners Radiohead and Foo Fighters across the festival which takes place 23-25 June. The rest of the line up is set to be confirmed in the coming weeks, with organisers calling it the biggest line up to date.
