Neil Young confirmed as third 2009 headliner

9 March 2009

Glastonbury Festival is pleased to announce that Neil Young will be the third headliner at this year's sold out event, joining previously-announced headliners Blur and Bruce Springsteen.

Says Festival founder Michael Eavis: "Every year the people that come to the Festival ask the same question: when is Neil Young playing? So this is big news for us. I've seen him play many times over the years but I think he's better than ever at the moment, it's one hell of a show. 

"And the wonderful thing about Neil Young is that every generation loves his music, you can hear him in some of the younger bands like Fleet Foxes, who will also be playing at the Festival this year, so it's a big one for all of us. With Neil on the bill we are close to completing our best ever line-up."
