Glastonbury has announced some of the acts set to play at the festival in June, and the line-up is as diverse as ever. Along with the headline acts Adele, Coldplay and Muse, music fans can expect to see everyone from Ellie Goulding and Years & Years to Disclosure and Jeff Lynne's ELO.

The initial line-up was revealed on Tuesday morning when the first poster for the festival was shared on the official Glastonbury Twitter account.

"We're pleased to reveal our first Glastonbury Festival 2016 line-up poster (by Stanley Donwood)," the tweet said.

Joining the impressive line-up of acts set to perform at Worthy Farm, Somerset are The 1975, Skepta, LCD Soundsystem and Jess Glynne, who tweeted to express her excitement at the news on Tuesday morning.

"So @glastofest is going to be a big one! I can't tell you how excited I am! Who's coming!?" Jess wrote.

This year's festival will be headlined by three of Britain's biggest musical acts including Adele, who announced the news that she would be performing at the festival during one of her recent concerts at London's O2 Arena.

Speaking to her thousands of fans during her performance, Adele said in her trademark casual manner: "Who's going to Glastonbury this year? See you there. I'll be there. I'll be headlining on the Saturday night this year."

The 27-year-old added: "I've had to keep that secret for years!"

Muse will headline the festival on Friday night – making them the first ever band to have headlined every night of the festival, having played the Saturday night slot in 2010 and Sunday in 2004.

Meanwhile Coldplay are set to make history after announcing that they will be headlining the famous Pyramid stage for a record fourth time. The band have previously been given the honour in 2002, 2005 and 2011, and will no doubt have something special planned for their return to Worthy Farm.
