Paul McCartney to Headline Glastonbury 2020

Paul McCartney has been confirmed as the first headliner for Glastonbury 2020.

The Beatles' bassist will headline the festival on Saturday 27th June, and is the first headliner announced for Glastonbury's 50th anniversary. 

The Beatles star, now 77, teased the announcement by uploading a cryptic post on his Instagram, depicting three stars in succession: Phillip Glass, Emma Stone and Chuck Berry. 


The festival then later confirmed the news. Paul McCartney has been at the top of the rumours list for many months now after revealing he was "thinking about it" to BBC Radio 2. 

Wolf Alice and Diana Ross are the only other artists officially confirmed for the festival, which is to take place in Somerset, from June 24-28. Supergrass are also amongst those rumoured to join, after their reunion in September. 

The British music icon released his new album Egypt Station earlier in the year to coincide with the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' Abbey Road album. 

The first wave of tickets for Glastonbury's forthcoming edition sold out in just 34 minutes, however there is another chance to secure tickets to 2020's festival during the resale in April.

Glastonbury 2020 is held in Pilton, Somerset, United Kingdom from June 24-28 2020. Head to our guide to find more information on tickets and lineups.
