US rockers and goth indie heroes take main-stage honours alongside Stormzy, while Janet Jackson confirms first UK show in years
The Killers and the Cure have been announced as the final headliners of the 2019 Glastonbury festival. Brandon Flowers Vegas band will headline on the Saturday, and Robert Smith and co on the Sunday. They join the previously announced headliner Stormzy, who will close the Pyramid stage on Friday night.
It is the Cures fourth time headlining Glastonbury, following slots in 1986, 1990 and 1995. They join Coldplay as the only groups to have headlined the festival four times.
Down the bill, there are first-time Glastonbury appearances from Janet Jackson, Lauryn Hill and Miley Cyrus, among others. Liam Gallagher will follow his packed Other stage show at Glastonbury 2017, and Christine and the Queens returns for her second Glastonbury, having provided a flash of European optimism with her debut at the 2016 festival, the day after the UK voted to leave the EU.
Bands including Tame Impala, Vampire Weekend, Two Door Cinema Club and Hot Chip are likely to debut material from their respective hotly anticipated new records. The Streets, Damon Albarns the Good, the Bad & the Queen and Snow Patrol represent an older generation of British groups, while Years & Years, Bastille and Idles shore up the younger contingent.
