Festival organisers are yet to reveal this year’s line-up, but the superstar singer couldn’t contain her excitement – announcing that she’s ‘pumped’ to be playing, reports Billboard.

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

‘I’m pumped just thinking about that huge audience and soaking up their energy.’

On Tuesday Holy Moly claimed that the former Destiny’s Child star would be headlining this year’s Glasto, along with Coldplay and U2.

Beyoncé visited the festival in 2008 to watch hubbie Jay-Z perform on the The Pyramid Stage, but she has never performed there before.

Without naming the singer, organiser Michael Eavis previously revealed to NME, ‘There’s an American artist that I’ve been wanting to have for years and yonks and yonks and yonks.’

U2 had to cancel their show at last year’s festival when Bono had surgery and fans have been hoping that the band would make up for it with an appearance this year.

Meanwhile, The Sun reported last weekend that Coldplay would be headlining the Pyramid Stage this year for the third time.

A source told the paper that The Libertines could also be set to play, after a successful reunion at last year’s Reading and Leeds festivals.

The insider said, ‘Although there are no signs of new songs, the boys have realised that they can take a nice payday by playing each summer.

‘They bagged more than £1million for Reading and Leeds in 2010 and, although they won’t get as much for Glasto, it will still be a good earner.’
