Ed will take to the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm on June 25, and joins Radiohead and Foo Fighters as main stage headliners.

The official Glastonbury Twitter account shared a throwback from Ed’s first appearance at the festival. He first performed in 2011 when he headlined the Croissant Neuf tent. He last performed at the festival in 2014.

This announcement tops off what has been an incredible three months for Ed Sheeran. Following his comeback in January, he has surpassed all expectations and broken countless records along the way. His third album ÷ is the fastest-selling album by a male artist ever in the UK, with all 16 tracks currently sitting pretty in the UK top 20.

Outside of the music world, it was also confirmed this week that Ed will be making a guest appearance in the latest series of Game of Thrones. Whilst no further details have been announced, it was revealed that he was drafted in as a surprise for actress Maisie Williams.

As Ed Sheeran continues to dominate 2017, we’re lost for words as to what he will achieve next. He is currently unstoppable, and we love him for it.
