Everyone – and I mean everyone – on my train has got their laptop out and loaded on the Glastonbury tickets page, but I really don’t think the Southern Rail wifi is going to make this a fair fight.

There has been much speculation about 2024’s headliners, with the bookies’ favourites currently being The 1975, Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, and Harry Styles.
Organiser Emily Eavis previously teased the headliner and legends slot in October. “This year we’re holding out for a little bit longer, and last week I got a call from a really big American artist saying this person’s around next year,” she said. “And I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is incredible’. Thank God we held the slot.”
She also stated she was “really passionate about gender split” after facing criticism for last year’s all-male headliners.
It was previously rumoured that Madonna, Dua Lipa, and Coldplay would headline the iconic festival. However, Eavis shut down the rumours on X/Twitter, saying: “The story about our confirmed headliners is untrue. As always, we love your enthusiasm and guesswork – but accurate news on headliners will be with you sometime in the new year!”
