The Cure have been confirmed as Sunday night headliners for Glastonbury 2019.

The only two acts on the line-up to have previously been confirmed are Stormzy and Kylie Minogue, who will perform in the Sunday Legends' slot.

The Cure haven't performed at Glastonbury since 1995 and their booking means they'll equal a record now held by Coldplay, becoming the only band to have headlined the even four times.

Janet Jackson was also announced for the festival, making her debut at the event, while Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus, Johnny Marr, Billie Eilish, and George Ezra have also been added to the bill. The band is now tied with Coldplay as the most frequent headliners of Glastonbury. The Killers have previously headlined as well, back in 2007. "I can't wait to see you all there to share this special show".

Glastonbury has worked towards gender parity in its lineup this year, with 42 percent of the now announced acts being female (although all three headliners are male).

Absolute legend Stormzy was previously announced as the festival's first headliner late a year ago.

All tickets for the festival are now sold out, but a resale for unwanted tickets will take place on Sunday April 28.
