Beyonce has said she is "pumped" at the prospect of headlining Glastonbury this June.

Earlier this month a gossip website reported that the singer will join U2 and Coldplay by playing a headline slot at the Somerset event. Now she has released a statement confirming she's booked to play, reports Billboard.

"This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform there," she said. "Everyone who attends is really appreciative of music and is in such a good mood that entire weekend."

She added: "I'm pumped just thinking about that huge audience and soaking up their energy."

Beyonce visited the festival in 2008, when her husband Jay-Z headlined, but she has never performed at the event.

Glastonbury 2011 takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton. Billed music takes place on June 24-26, with the site opening on June 22.

Last year Gorillaz replaced U2 as headliners, with Muse and Stevie Wonder also playing headline slots.
