This year's three headliners - already announced - are Muse, Adele and Coldplay.

The festival takes place at Worthy Farm at Pilton in Somerset from 22 to 26 June.

The 2016 line-up also features The 1975, The Last Shadow Puppets, Grimes, Jake Bugg, Fatboy Slim, Guy Garvey, Madness, Wolf Alice, Bat For Lashes, Cyndi Lauper, Ronnie Spector and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Jeff Lynne's ELO occupies the Sunday afternoon "legends" slot, which in recent years has been filled by Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Kenny Rogers.

The Syrian National Orchestra, whose members have fled around the world due to the conflict in the country, is also set to perform.

The orchestra is already performing a concert with Blur and Gorillaz singer Damon Albarn at London's Royal Festival Hall on Saturday 25 June.
