Ed called the news “awesome” in a short video on his Instagram account. He’s in Turin, Italy, where the “Divide Tour” kicked off on Thursday night. Glastonbury becomes a big stop on what’s already a massive tour.
Glastonbury could be his only festival show of the year, though. He’s already booked in massive arenas across three continents through the start of October. And he doesn’t have a ton of Justin Bieber-style long breaks in between stops.
Ed has played Glastonbury before–in 2011 at one of the festival’s tents. Expect a lot of hype around his six-year rise from tent gig to headlining act.
