says he’s, in the first major line up announcement so far this year.

The Oasis legend, 51, took to today and got fans’ hearts beating like the speed of light.

In classic Liam form, it appears he’s self-confirmed he will be performing at the Worthy Farm festival in June before the official announcement.

It comes as a pleasant surprise to festival goers – who have been waiting the longest they have in 17 years for a single confirmation from organisers.

Taking to X, one fan @phillyrussell got more than they bargained for when he asked Liam on social media: ‘Will we see you and Squire at Glastonbury this summer LG?’

The indie rocker simply replied: ‘Yeh.’

‘C’maaaannnnn!!!!!!’ replied the fan, who probably can’t quite believe his luck after that shot in the internet dark came to fruition.

However, other fans weren’t convinced by this particular self-confirm, as the singer said in October he wouldn’t be playing while replying to a fan on X.

Seeing the news, the Glastonbury fan Luke Groves commented: ‘Definitely believe it when I see it from someone other than Liam.’

But things could have easily changed since his comments last year, as the lineup announcement appears to have been pushed back this year, set to be released all at once, rather than the drip feed we’re used to.

Liam is just about to release Liam Gallagher John Squire, his upcoming collaborative album with guitarist John Squire set to drop on March 1 – so the timing for a Glastonbury appearance does make sense.

Last year organiser Emily Eavis told Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw on their Sidetracked podcast about their new plan to release the line up all in one go at the ‘beginning of the year’.

‘Sometimes we’ll do something before , but what I’m really hoping for is to just announce the full lineup at the beginning of the year,’ Emily told the two DJs.

In 2022 and 2023 the full lineup was announced on the first Friday of March, so Glastonbury online sleuths including @TheGlastoThingy account reckon this year might be no different, meaning we could be just a week or so away from the full shibang, predicted to arrive on March 1. Eek!

Madonna dreams were squashed when it was said talks between the organisers and the Material Girl hitmaker had broken down. over her rumoured headline slot.

Before this, organiser Emily got the rumour mill churning when she told Annie and Nick they had a slot saved for a ‘really big American artist’ on the Pyramid Stage.

She teased: ‘I thought it was kind of taking shape, and then last week I just got a call.’

She added that, most years, Glastonbury acts will be fully booked up from July the year before – but ‘this year we were holding out for a little bit longer.’

Emily got the call confirming the ‘really big American artist is around next year,’ she said at the time.

‘And I was like, “Oh my God, this is incredible. Thank God we held the slot.’

Speculation has been rife with a few Glastonbury-shaped holes in tour dates from artists including Royal Blood, Pearl Jam, Shania Twain, and – but so far no one has been confirmed straight from the festival’s mouth.

Headliner rumours include Bruce Springsteen, Dua Lipa, Coldplay and Stevie Wonder – but time will tell. Also, take March 1 with a pinch of salt. There is no pattern…
