Update 18th March: Glastonbury 2020 has been cancelled due to coronavirus. As such, this page will no longer be updated. More info.
The full line-up isn’t usually confirmed until the end of May, but loads of artists, including the headliners, can be revealed earlier. Tickets sold out in under an hour back in October but resales are planned for April 16th and 19th 2020.
Last year, Stormzy was the first Pyramid Stage headliner to be revealed, with the announcement made on a poster in the windows of Oxfam shops.
Wolf Alice were the first artist officially confirmed to be on the Glastonbury 2020 line-up when Michael Eavis said the band will “definitely be on next year’s Glastonbury lineup for sure” last month. Diana Ross will also be there and Sir Paul McCartney has now been confirmed as the Saturday night Pyramid headliner.
Emily Eavis teased one more announcement before Christmas in a radio interview, and on Sunday 13th December Taylor Swift was confirmed as the Sunday night Pyramid Headliner. Lana Del Ray was then announced on the morning of February 13th and will also appear on the Pyramid.
Kendrick Lamar remains strongly rumoured for the Friday headline slot.
Other artists ‘self-confirm’ before the official announcement, by letting slip they’re booked for Glasto during interviews or on social media. It looks like Aerosmith have done just that and self-confirmed for 2020.
In January 2020, The 1975‘s manager responded to a fan asking about Glastonbury by saying “we really wanna play”. Around a fortnight later, the band told Radio 1’s Annie Mac headlining Glastonbury is: “the only gig I feel like we need to do before it kind of all changes” for the band.
Rumours of My Chemical Romance appearing stepped up a gear after the band announced their first UK show since the band split in 2013 will take place just days before Glastonbury gets started. Some are also hoping Guns N’ Roses could be on the line-up for similar reasons.
Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys hinted they could appear at Worthy Farm in a radio interview, then weeks later made similar comments in a newspaper interview. Fun Lovin’ Criminals and Crowded House have also self-confirmed.
We’ve compiled a list of all the acts confirmed so far, and we’ll be updating it every time we find out an artist will be at Pilton next June.
We’ve also listed every artist self-confirmed or rumoured, with links to the source whenever possible.
