Glastonbury has announced the lineup for the Field of Avalon stage, which the organisers have hailed a "gender equal line-up".

The likes of ‘Shout’ hitmaker Lulu – who is playing her final show on the Avalon stage - Baby Queen, Caity Baser, Lucy Spraggan, Shaznay Lewis, and Kate Nash lead the ladies on the bill, alongside Frank Turner, The Feeling, New Model Army, The Magic Numbers, and Skindred.

The Glastonbury website announcement reads: "Expect days of eclectic music representing the best in the world of contemporary, roots and folk music, a gender equal line-up and intimate, never-forget Glastonbury moments when you visit the Field of Avalon."

Emily Eavis - who co-organises the world-famous Somerset festival with her father Michael - previously vowed to address the lack of female artists at Glastonbury, especially in the top slots, and this year there are two female headliners after there was a backlash over Guns N' Roses, Arctic Monkeys and Sir Elton John closing out the Pyramid Stage in 2023, whilst Lizzo performed before Axl Rose and co.

She told Glamour magazine: "I think everyone knows that we’re trying harder than most, certainly extremely hard to address (the gender balance of acts), and I’ve been very vocal about it.

"I’m trying my best and, believe me, it’s a real, passionate subject of mine. I’ve been trying to raise the flag around gender and festivals for a long time. But we can only do so much.

“I just do what I think is right. Because I don’t have an agenda, I’m just trying to do the best thing for the festival and make it as fair and equal and brilliant as possible.”

Glastonbury takes place between June 26 to June 30 at Worthy Farm, and will see headline performances from SZA, Dua Lipa and Coldplay.

Shania Twain will play the Sunday afternoon legends' slot.

Also on the bill are US rockers The National, indie group Idles, K-pop act Seventeen, Avril Lavigne, The Streets, Camila Cabello, Sugababes and The Last Dinner Party.
