The Killers to headline Glastonbury on Saturday

The headliners are The Cure, Kylie Minogue, The Killers, Stormzy, and Janet Jackson, and there's something for pretty much everybody beyond that.

The Cure and The Killers will join Stormzy as headliners of Glastonbury in June.

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. Their performance will be their first at the festival since since 1995, and also brings them on par with Coldplay as the only two bands to have headlined the festival four times.

The music festival announced in a tweet Friday the British goth rockers and the American rock band will perform at the annual event in June.

More big names, including George Ezra, The Chemical Brothers, Vampire Weekend and Tame Impala have been unveiled in a post on Twitter. Janet Jackson has also been confirmed. Other specific stage details are still to be confirmed.

Response to the bill has been mixed, with fans praising a near-50% female line-up, while others have called it "predictable". We're definitely moving in the right direction'.

Every so often, the Glastonbury Festival takes what is known as a "fallow year", which is a break to allow the land to recover for the wear and tear a major festival inflicts on it, since the festival takes place on a farm.
