Janet Jackson appearance at this year’s Glastonbury was announced last week, alongside The Killers, Kylie, The Cure and Stormzy.

But it appears she wasn’t quite happy with the billing.

So she’s made herself the headliner.

In a tweet revealing her joy at the booking for this summer, Jackson posted a snap of the poster, which was unveiled by organisers last Friday.


But music fans were quick to note that Jackson – or, of course, more likely someone in her team – has shifted her name a few slots to the left. Making her, and not The Killers, the headline act.


Twitter, of course, found the whole business hilarious.




Jackson will be making her ever appearance at the festival this year, which is boasting aline-up of 42 percent female acts.

As ever, the event happens at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from June 26 to 30.
