Janelle Monáe is officially playing Glastonbury 2019

She'll headline the West Holts Stage, Emily Eavis reveals.

Janelle Monáe is set to headline the West Holts Stage at Glastonbury 2019.

The news was revealed by Emily Eavis, appearing on the first edition of Laurene Laverne’s new BBC 6 Music Breakfast Show this morning (7th January), where the organiser also confirmed the line-up is “about 90% of the way there”, with “the last 10% of confirmations going on now”.

Monáe will join Pyramid Stage headliner Stormzy and Kylie Minogue – who will appear in the afternoon ‘legend’s slot’ – as the first names announced for 2019’s festival.

“We’ve got Janelle Monáe headlining the West Holts stage,” Eavis said. Talking about her last appearance, she continued: “2015 was incredible, that show was really brilliant. You could have watched it with the sound off, and it would have been incredible. It will be quite a moment.”

It’s not the only Glastonbury news Eavis let slip. Apparently Arcadia are working on a new design, Bloc 9 will be expanding with a new installation and The Park will have a new area.

Glastonbury 2019 takes place between 26th and 30th June 2019.
