First headliner announced for Glastonbury

The first headliner has been announced for this year's Glastonbury: and it's the return of festival favourites Coldplay.

It's the fourth time that the band will have topped the bill, having first headlined in 2002, before returning in 2005 and 2011, when they put fellow biggest-band-in-the-world U2 in the shade. It will also give them the record of headline appearances - they're currently tied with Van Morrison on three.

The band released a tweet which hinted at the booking, and a quick look at the tour page on their website confirms that they'll be closing the festival on the Sunday night - traditionally the spot for a classic, or pop headliner. 

UK fans will get the chance to see the show before they head to Pilton Farm - they tour the UK throughout June, including four nights at London's Wembley Stadium.

The Sunday afternoon 'Legends' slot has gone this year to Jeff Lyne's ELO, leaving just the Friday and Saturday night headliner slots to be filled, on the main booking side of things. The smart money is still on Foo Fighters to play on the Friday night, after they were forced to pull out following Dave Grohl's leg injury.
