After much speculation, Taylor Swift has confirmed that she will headline the Pyramid Stage on Sunday night at Glastonbury 2020.
The ‘Lover’ artist will be bringing proceedings to a close on June 28 with what is expected to be a hit-filled set not to be missed.
This will be Taylor’s first time at the festival, and what better time to perform than at its 50th anniversary? She is also the first female artist to headline since Adele in 2016.
Taylor confirmed the exciting news by sharing a picture of herself on social media with a Glastonbury newspaper featuring the headline ‘Sunday night Taylor made for Glastonbury’.
Michael Eavis, the festival’s founder, also took to social media to share his delight at the news. In a short video, he described her as “one of the biggest stars in the world and her songs are absolutely amazing.”
The full line up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be announced however, we do already know that Sir Paul McCartney will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday evening, whilst Diana Ross will play the Sunday Legends slot.
Further announcements are expected in due course and we cannot wait to hear who will be performing alongside Taylor. Festival organiser Emily Eavis recently said that Friday’s headliner would be a male artist playing the festival for their first time.
Tickets for Glastonbury sold out in just 34 minutes of going on sale back in October. However, there will be a resale for unwanted and unpaid tickets on April 16 for coach tickets and April 19 for general tickets so keep your eyes peeled.
This is Taylor’s second UK festival announcement for 2020, with the ‘You Need To Calm Down’ star having already been confirmed to return to BST Hyde Park on Saturday July 11.
Glastonbury Festival 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Somerset, on June 24-28, 2020.
