'We're so excited to get to play in front of the world's greatest festival audience.'
At a ceremony in London tonight, Edge presented the 'Best Festival' award by video to Michael and Emily Eavis of The Glastonbury Festival - and confirmed that U2 would play the festival this summer.
''It's more a way of life than a festival.' he said, describing the great time he had visiting the Festival last year, guesting on stage with Muse.
'We're all looking forward to coming back to pick up where I left off, U2 will be playing June 24th...we'll see you there.'
