What’s long been expected is now official – Swifty will top the bill on the Sunday of the event. She’s the second headliner to be revealed, after Paul McCartney was announced for Saturday Pyramid Stage duty.
“I’m ecstatic to tell you that I’ll be headlining Glastonbury on its 50th anniversary,” Taylor tweeted. “See you there!”
Well, if we got tickets, Tay. Not all of us did, did we? Nope.
A third headliner – who according to Emily Eavis is a) male and b) hasn’t played the festival before, is still to be announced. We better hope he’s quite ‘Humble’, or it’ll go to his head, won’t it Dear Reader?
Elsehwere at ‘Glasto’, Dianna Ross will play the Sunday afternoon ‘legends’ slot on the Pyramid Stage – marking her first UK appearance since 2008. It’s the billing filled last year by Kylie that drew a massive crowd, so expect ‘a moment’.
Confirming the news, Ross said: “To all my fans across the world, this is my tribute to you. Every concert feels like a private party, I can see your eyes and feel your hearts. I’m coming to Glastonbury, with love.”
Next year will be the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury, which kicked off back in 1970. It’ll take place between 24th and 28th June.
