Taylor Swift has been confirmed to be headlining the Pyramid Stage at the 50th-anniversary of Glastonbury Festival next summer. She joins Paul McCartney on the line-up, who was previously announced as the Saturday Pyramid headliner.
Taylor was the bookies favourite to headline back in September. It’s set to be the first time she’s appeared at the festival.
Michael Eavis also shared a short video message alongside the announcement:
Aerosmith appear to have self-confirmed by mistake in an email newsletter sent out to fans. Supergrass are strongly-rumoured after reforming in September to perform at Pilton Party, a ‘thank-you’ event for the local community organised by Glastonbury.
At the start of last week, Emily Eavis revealed another artist could be announced before Christmas. Speaking to Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2, she said the remaining Pyramid Stage headliners have never played at Glastonbury before: “and we’ve one male and one female who are coming”.

Glastonbury 50, the book commemorating the festival’s 50th-anniversary, was named as a ‘Book of the Year’ by The Times over the weekend. It previously ranked third in the Sunday Times Bestseller List for hardback non-fiction books.
The book is authored by organisers Michael and Emily Eavis and contains hundreds of photos from the festival and celebrity contributions.
In an alternative chart released by Amazon, Glastonbury 50 placed 10th among all non-fiction books after its first week of sales. The book had recently sold out in some stores, but festival organisers confirmed today the second print run had now arrived and all stores should be restocked soon, if not already.
