Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA headline Glastonbury Festival 2024 this weekend.

And now a new UK poll of 2000 Brits conducted by Heart Bingo has revealed the nation’s dream performers on the Pyramid Stage, living or dead.

The top three were Queen, ABBA and The Beatles, which should come as little surprise. After all, what other bands have multiple hits songs known off by heart the world over?

Freddie Mercury’s band took the top spot with 33 per cent of the vote followed by the Swedish pop group on 24 per cent and The Beatles on 21 per cent.

Meanwhile, the top solo artist was David Bowie in fourth place on 19 per cent. Check out the full top 10 below.

Britain’s dream Glastonbury headliners:

1. Queen – 33.2%
2. ABBA – 24.6%
3. The Beatles – 21.7%
4. David Bowie – 19.8%
5. Michael Jackson – 18.7%
6. Fleetwood Mac – 17.8%
7. Bob Marley – 16.9%
8. Ed Sheeran -16.3%
9. Elvis Presley – 16.3%
10. Whitney Houston – 14%

Sarah Caskie, Head of Heart Bingo, said: “With attention around the UK set to turn to Glastonbury Festival this weekend as headline acts Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA take to the Pyramid Stage to wow crowds, we thought it was perfect timing to find out just who the country would like to see as their dream headliners.

“The poll predictably produced some interesting results and a stunning trio of headline acts in Queen, ABBA and The Beatles, with Queen leading the way with 33.2% of the vote thanks to some of the legendary live performances they delivered across the 1970s and 1980s.

 “Special mentions also go to David Bowie, Michael Jackson and Fleetwood Mac, who just missed out on a place on our Pyramid Stage – and while we can’t wait to see Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA perform this weekend, we’ll also be dreaming of Queen, ABBA and The Beatles delivering knockout sets.”
