The band have played at the festival a number of times in previous years, and headlined Glastonbury in 2013, however not all fans are happy.
While the ‘I Will Wait’ creators’ success isn’t being denied, a number of fans have stated that they are the wrong choice for the rock festival, whose previous headliners include Rage Against The Machine, Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters.
But not everyone was disappointed:
Metallica are also set to play at the August bank holiday weekend festival, and a third headliner is due to be announced.
Monday’s announcement saw a number of acts added to the bill, including Royal Blood, who will also play on the mainstage.
Bastille and Years & Years will also perform, along with the previously announced acts Jamie T, Wilkinson and Manchester Orchestra.
