Following the incident the organizer Emily Eavis previously announced there was a plan B in place but they will confirm later who will replace the Foo Fighter.
Finally a few hours later the Glastonbury officials confirmed Florence and the Machine will be taking the Pyramid Stage at the festival. According to Emily Eavis Florence and the Machine was their first choice after Foo Fighters had to cancel their gig and there was no one else they wanted more.
Florence Welch had previously indicated she will perform with her band at the Glastonbury but it was not confirmed it would be on the main stage. This will be the first time Welch will perform on the framed main stage of the Glastonbury festival on the 26th of June.
Fans gave their unanimous approval to the selection of Florence and the Machines appearance on the social media platform. However the approval may in part be due to the scare James Blunt gave rock fans when he announced he will be the main act on the Glastonbury main stage on the 26th of June.

Many fans reacted negatively to the news saying their tickets were wasted not realizing the entire thing was a joke on part of James Blunt, while some fans were delighted with the false news. However in the end James Blunt came clean and the official performers were announced as Florence and the Machine so all is well in the world.
