For too long we have awaited the triumphant return of our “So Yesterday” siren.

Florence + The Machine was already set to perform at this year’s Glastonbury, but now the popstress’ booking slot has been raised to the top bill!

After Foo Fighters cancelled their appearance for the upcoming music festival due to Dave Grohl’s leg injury, the How Big artist will now be the event’s headliner. Along with Florence + The Machine, Kanye West will also be fronting the festival.

Emily Eavis, one of Glastonbury’s organizers, said this about the decision: “Every time [Florence Welch] has played here she has done something spectacular, and we always knew she would headline the Pyramid stage one day. I’m delighted she is going to step up to it – she’s going to smash it!”

Glastonbury takes place at Pilton’s Worthy Farm from June 24-28, and features acts like Pharrell Williams, Lionel Richie, Patti Smith, deadmau5, Mark Ronson, Mary J. Blige, Jessie Ware, Hot Chip, Flying Lotus, Run the Jewels, Future Islands, FKA twigs, Azealia Banks, Charli XCX, La Roux, Jamie xx, Rudimental, George Ezra and dozens more.
