Glastonbury has shared the first wave of acts set to play its 50th anniversary edition this year.
Kendrick Lamar has been confirmed as a headliner, alongside previously announced Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Diana Ross.
Among the acts announced to play the legendary festival are UKG powerhouse AJ Tracey, The Avalanches, Caribou, FKA Twigs, Danny Brown, Charli XCX, and Dizzee Rascal, as well as legendary acts such as Pet Shop Boys, Herbie Hancock and Primal Scream. Check out the full line-up so far below.
Amid global concerns and mass cancelations of events and festivals due to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the festival’s co-organiser Emily Eavis shared the following statement: ““As things stand we are still working hard to deliver our 50th anniversary Festival in June and we are very proud of the bill that we have put together over the last year or so. No one has a crystal ball to see exactly where we will all be 15 weeks from now, but we are keeping our fingers firmly crossed that it will be here at Worthy Farm for the greatest show on Earth!”
Should Glastonbury go ahead as planned, they have a lot in store for 2020. The mighty Arcadia area will debut four new visual pieces at Glastonbury 2020 thanks to a £49,000 funding grant. Also, the festival’s 360-degree immersive stage, The Gas Tower, will return in 2020.
