After the Foo Fighters pulled out of their Friday night headline slot at Glastonbury 2015, rumours spread that everyone from Taylor Swift to Fleetwood Mac could be in line to replace them. This morning, festival organizer Emily Eavis confirmed that Florence and the Machine would be stepping into the slot (see her tweet below).

Florence Welch and her band were originally scheduled to perform before the Foos, but will now take the top billing, after Grohl broke his leg falling offstage at a show in Sweden last week.
