The Glastonbury Festival‘s semi-complete artist lineup has been revealed. The festival stated they will reveal a special guest at a later date, but the artists announced so far are definitely enough to get the fans excited. While Kanye WestFoo Fighters, and Florence + The Machine were previously announced as headliners, the festival just revealed Pharrell Williams, Mary J. Blige, Motörhead, George Ezra, alt-J, Patti Smith, and Lionel Richie will all perform at Glastonbury this year.

The festival will run from June 24th through the 28th in Worthy Farms in Somerset (England). The tickets are already sold out, but there’s always next year. When it comes to Glastonbury, tickets must be purchased early; tickets this year sold out months before the artist lineup was announced. Some other artists set to perform at Glastonbury include the Chemical Brothers, Deadmau5, Courtney Barnett, Suede, Run the Jewels, Azealia Banks, FKA Twigs, Mark Ronson, Charli XCX, Hozier, Ryan Adams, Alabama Shakes, Rudimental, and The Vaccines. Fans can view the artist lineup on the Glastonbury Festival website.

Florence Welch (Florence + The Machine) just announced she broke her foot, after jumping off the stage at Coachella. The group’s scheduled promotional shows for their upcoming album How Big How Beautiful will be postponed for now. The album will be released on June 2nd, and Florence is expected to take a two month hiatus so her foot can heal. “I’m so sorry to say, that after what was one of my favourite shows ever at Coachella, I have discovered I have broken my foot from leaping off the stage,” Florence wrote on Facebook. She continued, “Unfortunately while this heals, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back.” 

The singer is hopeful she will be ready for Florence + The Machine’s headlining gig at Glastonbury. “This album was so much about making something from what was broken, so let’s see what we can do with this,” Florence wrote. Besides Glastonbury, the group is scheduled to perform at the second week of Coachella (April 17-19th), the Governors Ball (June 5-7th), and Bonnaroo (June 11-14th). The group has not announced if they will cancel their Coachella performance, but the cancellation is expected.
