Ed Sheeran Announced as Final Headliner for 2017 Glastonbury Festival

Finally, the Sunday night headliner at Glastonbury has been announced and of course it's Ed Sheeran.

Sheeran, who is now on tour promoting his third studio album, Divide, recently dished to ET about finding "new things to write about" since hooking up with girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.

Announcing it on his Instagram in the form of a short video featuring some cows (of course), Ed said "can't wait" and that it was "awesome".

A music fan who had already bought a ticket to the festival posted online that he wanted a "refund" after hearing Sheeran would be headlining.

The chart-dominating pop star will close the event on Sunday, June 25th, in his only scheduled festival appearance this year.

Sheeran is the third and final Pyramid Stage headliner to be confirmed, joining Friday night headliners Radiohead and Foo Fighters, who will play the Saturday night leg.

This year's event, held between June 21 to 25, is expected to attract around 170,000 punters.

Sheeran made his Glastonbury debut in 2011, playing on the BBC Introducing stage.

He last played the Pyramid Stage in 2014, taking an early evening slot after the legendary Dolly Parton and this year he will be returning to headline Glastonbury.
