Coldplay ended months of speculation to confirm they will be among the headliners at Glastonbury Festival this summer.

The band had been widely tipped to top the bill and have now announced they will play the Pyramid Stage on Saturday June 25.

Coldplay last played the event in 2005 but have often talked about their affinity for the event.

Last week Beyonce revealed she was to be one of the main stars at the weekend festival, which is staged in Somerset.

Organiser Michael Eavis said: "Coldplay have played such a major part in the festival over the last 10 years or so.

"As their popularity grew around the world, I was so proud of them. This is the triumphant return of a band that everyone here feels part of. They're one of the greatest phenomena to grow from these fields."

Tickets for the festival sold out last year. The full bill is not announced until nearer the event.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
