The festival bosses, Michael and Emily Eavis are said to be "delighted" to have got Ed to perform at next year's festival, after his huge comeback to music, following his hiatus.

The world has gone Ed Sheeran mad since he released his latest album 'Divide' and it's no surprise that the festival organisers would want to get him involved.

Ed will be closing the festival on the Sunday evening following earlier headline sets from Radiohead and the Foo Fighters on the Friday and Sunday.

One source previously said "Ed's always said headlining Glastonbury has been a big ambition of his", so it looks like he can tick that one off of the list.

Glastonbury takes place between 23rd-25th June and is always one of the most talked about events in the UK music calendar.
