Katy Perry will play Glastonbury Festival for the first time

Katy Perry will play Glastonbury Festival for the first time - and she's already preparing for the rain

The Roar singer was delighted to share the news, but seemed to be looking ahead to the famously bad weather that plagues British festival season

She's one of the biggest pop stars in the world, whose chalked up Grammys, BRITs, and a plethora of number one albums across the globe.

And now Katy Perry can add the vaunted honour of playing the most famous music festival in the world to her trophy cabinet, as on Thursday it was announced she's playing Glastonbury 2016.

Following the official announcement the 32-year-old Dark Horse siren took to social media, barely able to contain her excitement at being given a place at the top of the bill.

Due to rub shoulders with the likes of Radiohead, Ed Sheeran and Foo Fighters, it would seem that the pop star is already casting her mind forward to June.

Taking to her social media accounts, Katy announced the news to her millions of follower excitedly - though it would seem there's one aspect to the festival that she's been made very aware of.

Tweeting an announcement to her own 96.7million followers, she excitedly joked: "I can has tea and crumpets?!"
