The cartoon group will fill in for the Irish rockers after they pulled out because of a back injury sustained by singer Bono.
Farmer Eavis who heads the Somerset event said: “Within a few minutes of word going out, the phone started ringing with all the headline bands in the world offering to replace U2.
“Funnily enough, Gorillaz got in there first. It sounds like a really interesting thing, and they have the most amazing guests they're going to bring on, who shall remain nameless.”
Eavis added: “It gave me so much encouragement for the future, because it could have been a disaster. When we needed them, they came to the rescue.”
Gorillaz leader Damon Albarn is likely to bring guests including Shaun Ryder, Mos Def and Snoop Dogg on stage during the gig.
