Glastonbury Festival Promise

U2 have promised that they will make an impact on this year’s Glastonbury Festival, when they headline the Worthy Farm event in Somerset for the first time in their career on Jun. 25.

Speaking to the Times this weekend, guitarist the Edge (pictured right) said that the band had previously been mistrustful, saying, “I used to be sceptical of its roots, the hippy thing” but now “have a good feeling about it.”

The Edge, real name Dave Evans, also said 2010 felt like the right time to play the annual event, saying, “It feels like we really have to do it because if we don’t do it now, we never will.”

U2 are the first confirmed headliners for the 40th anniversary of the festival — another headliner has been confirmed, but not yet disclosed by artist booker Emily Eavis, who runs the festival alongside her father Michael.

Rumoured bands to headline include the Rolling Stones and Muse. Lets wait to see what happens
