Florence and the Machine are headlining Glastonbury after Foo Fighters were forced to pull out.

Foo Fighters’ lead singer Dave Grohl unfortunately broke his leg on stage in Sweden.

The band have also sadly had to cancel upcoming performances at Wembley, so it’s a sad day for Foos fans. And for the world in general, because we love Dave Grohl and his long flowy hair :(

    Sorry about that, guys. We’re sure that Dave and co will back soon, though.

    Anyway, Glastonbury top dog Michael Eavis has pulled out all the stops and secured Florence and the Machine as headliner.

    Emily Eavis said:

    “Once we heard... Foo Fighters had been forced to pull out, there was only one person we wanted to call and that was Florence.

    “Every time she has played here she's done something spectacular and we always knew she would headline the Pyramid one day.

    "I'm delighted she's agreed to step up to it - she's going to smash it.”

    We’re sure Flozza will wear a lovely flowy frock and all, but we are quite gutted Fleetwood Mac weren’t booked.

    BUT HEY. It’s better than a tumbleweed blowing across the stage, right?
