Taylor Swift has confirmed she will headline Glastonbury Festival 2020.
Taylor Swift is heading for Worthy Farm next summer to headline Glastonbury!
Next year's festival is no ordinary event, it's the 50th anniversary, so there's going to be an even bigger line-up than usual.
So far, Diana Ross has been announced as the legend slot and Beatles star Paul McCartney has been confirmed to headline the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night.
Here are all the confirmed artists for Glastonbury 2020, as well as the rumours that continue to circulate.
Taylor Swift - confirmed
Taylor confirmed she will headline the final night of the festival in an Instagram post.
She captioned it: "I’m ecstatic to tell you that I’ll be headlining Glastonbury on its 50th anniversary - See you there!"
Taylor will be touring her 'Lover' album next year and stopping off in England to play a few dates, so it makes sense that she's been booked for Glasto.
One thing you can always count on Taylor to do it put on a huge show so we can only imagine how incredible it will be. She plays the guitar and piano, and of course, would have a host of of artists to call in favours with and bring them out on stage!
Paul McCartney – confirmed
After dropping a number of hints, it's finally been confirmed Paul McCartney will be taking to the Pyramid stage on the Saturday night as Glastonbury Festival's 2020 headliner.
Festival organiser Emily Eavis announced the news saying: "IT’S REAL!! So excited.. Having Paul McCartney coming back to headline the Pyramid next year is an absolute dream come true. There really was no one that we wanted more for the 50th anniversary."
Paul McCartney teased the news earlier on in the day on Instagram, with a picture of composer Phillip Glass, actor Emma Stone, and rock star Chuck Berry.
The legend has played Glastonbury before, back in 2004, where he played a mixture of The Beatles' music and his solo material and has spoken about the possibility of returning for the 50th anniversary, however, he remained hesitant, calling it a 'remote possibility.'
His catalogue of iconic songs are perfect for the festival setting, with big hits including 'Hey Jude', and The Beatles classics 'Here Comes The Sun' and 'Penny Lane' to name a few.
Diana Ross – confirmed
I am delighted to say that one of the all-time greats, the wonderful Diana Ross, is coming to Glastonbury to play the Sunday legend slot on the Pyramid next year.— Emily Eavis (@emilyeavis) October 10, 2019
Well well well, what can we say?! It was an announcement no one saw coming, but the iconic 'I'm Coming Out' singer has been confirmed for the legend's slot on the Sunday – played last year by Kylie Minogue.
People are delighted by the announcement, and Glastonbury has proved once again you really can't predict who they're going to put on the line-up!
A Glastonbury favourite and one of the biggest bands in the UK right now, Matt Healy has pretty much confirmed the 'Love It If We Made It' band will be at the 2020 festival come what may.
He told Beats 1: "I’ll be at Glastonbury ...whether we headline it or not, who knows? If I ever am headlining Glastonbury, then everyone’s going to have to be on guard for a year, so that I don’t completely lose my mind."
The band are known for putting on amazing live shows, thinking outside the box and bringing a political message to their set, which of course, fits with the activist roots of the the whole event.
Having recently wrapped up a UK arena tour, Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell have been reminded of what it's like to perform in front of thousands of fans, and we know at least one member of the pop group is 100% down for the festival.
Mel B revealed in September she and her bandmates had met with Victoria Beckham to discuss Glasto, and even told fans: "We are definitely signed on board to do that. All five of us, yes."
Kylie took the Sunday legends slot in 2019, and there seems to be a big Spice Girls shaped hole for next year, and who knows, maybe Posh Spice will even be joining them- iconic.
The superstar has never played the iconic music festival, so could she be following in BFF Miley Cyrus's enormous footsteps after her sizzling 2019 Pyramid stage set?
Ari has headlined enormous festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza in the last year, so it could be time for her to turn her sights to the UK for her next, and Emily Eavis, the organiser, has favoured booking big pop acts in recent times, so it definitely isn't out of the question.
Seeing as the 26-year-old is at the top of her game right now, having released two albums in the space of a year and embarking on a world tour, snatching a GRAMMY for the Best Pop Vocal album, this could be a better time than ever.
One of the most hotly rumoured bands to be playing, Fleetwood Mac have famously declined to perform on many occasions before, with Michael Eavis saying they are asking for too much money and will need to 'lower their price' should they be put onto the 50th anniversary bill.
Despite Mick Fleetwood dropping a pretty big hint they still had a 'pretty big field' to play and made a reference to a 'rained out festival in England', Emily Eavis has told everyone to 'forget about it', confirming they won't be on the line-up!
