Courtesy of Rock & Roll Hall of FameThe Cure and Janet Jackson, both of whom will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame later this month, are among the artists headlining the 2019 edition of the U.K.’s mega-festival Glastonbury, held June 26-30.

The Cure has headlined Glastonbury three times previously, and will now tie Coldplay for the most headlining sets in the festival’s history. This will mark Jackson’s debut at the event, which has been staged on and off since 1970.

Other veteran artists on the bill include Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples and Kylie Minogue.

As previously reported, The Cure and Jackson will be inducted into the Rock Hall on March 29 at a ceremony held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The other inductees are Stevie Nicks, The Zombies, Def Leppard, Roxy Music and Radiohead.
