Adele Beyonce Knowles Glastonbury Festival Coldplay

The soul superstar is performing on the iconic Pyramid stage at the event for the first time in June (16), and is planning to go incognito to watch her favourite bands without attracting undue attention.

According to Britain's Daily Star newspaper she told fans at a concert in London on Tuesday (05Apr16),"I'm going to go in disguise. Obviously on stage I'll be me but when I watch Muse and Coldplay I'll be dressed as someone else. Perhaps as Beyonce, although I'd need to get a spray tan and that wouldn't be considered politically correct."

Glastonbury 2016 - Plausible And Implausible Rumours


Glastonbury Festival Radiohead The Stone Roses Guns N Roses Ed Sheeran Fleetwood Mac

It’s that time of year again: the annual rumour mill of who is going to be making appearances at Glastonbury, plausible or otherwise. Although the three Pyramid Stage headliners have been revealed – Muse on Friday, Adele on Saturday, and Coldplay rounding things off on Sunday – there are literally several hundred other slots to be filled on the numerous other stages.

The Sunday afternoon ‘legends slot’ has also already been confirmed, with ELO set to entertain the crowds. However, there are always rumours flying around during the festival itself as to who’s going to be making low-key, surprise appearances. The reformed Libertines did so last year, appearing at the Pyramid Stage. So, are there any major names that might do this in 2016?

Adele: 'My Bum Is Too Big To Twerk With!'


Adele Glastonbury Festival

The 27-year-old singer has been delighting fans with her onstage antics since bringing her World tour to London, England. At one of the concerts this week (beg21Mar16), Adele decided to try her luck at twerking - a popular dance move which involves sticking out the bottom and thrusting the hips in a sexually provocative manner.

The Hello star perhaps wasn't wearing the most appropriate ensemble to try the move, a gorgeous full-length black sequinned gown, when she attempted it.

The hilarity of the situation certainly wasn't lost on Adele, who joked with the crowd that her curves made it more difficult for her to successfully twerk.
