The extended line-up for the festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset was announced on Tuesday morning through a poster on the Glastonbury Twitter account.
Headliners Adele, Coldplay and Muse had already been announced to perform at the festival, which takes place from June 22nd-26th.
Fitting with Glastonbury tradition, the diverse line-up includes a mixture of established artists such as Lauper and Madness, as well as newcomers including Grimes and Stormzy.
The Syrian National Symphony Orchestra, many of whose members have fled the conflict in their home country, are also scheduled to perform at the festival.
The orchestra will reunite with Blur frontman Damon Albarn at London’s Southbank centre on Saturday June 25th but will also find time for a visit to the festival in Somerset.
They first played with Albarn at the Damascus Opera House in 2008 and feature on the Gorillaz track White Flag, then joining the band on their 2010 world tour.
The Syrian musicians, separated by war, will come back together to perform under principal conductor Issam Rafea.
