The Edge says he's got over scepticism about festival's 'hippy roots'
The band will top the bill at Worthy Farm for the first time in their career on June 25.
Guitarist The Edge told The Times he used to be “sceptical” of the “hippy thing” associated with Michael Eavis‘ festival.
However, he now feels that “we really have to do it”.
He said: “If we don’t do it now, we never will.
“I’m going along to check it out as much as anything but I have a good feeling about it. I’d like to hope we can make our mark.”
Last month, Emily Eavis announced a second headliner for the Glastonbury festival had been confirmed, but said the act won’t be revealed until “early next year”.
Meanwhile, there are three acts in the running for the Sunday night slot, she added.
