Taylor Swift rumoured to headline Glastonbury after announcing European tour

 Taylor Swift rumoured to headline Glastonbury after announcing European tour

Fans on social media are suggesting that Taylor Swift could be on the line-up for Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary in 2020 after she announced a series of European festival tour dates.

Six European dates have been announced this afternoon, including Roskilde Festival, also be celebrating it’s 50th anniversary next year. The poster for the tour states: “Additional UK and international dates and festivals will be announced soon.”

A festival in Oslo on Friday 26th June is the only tour date which clashes with Glastonbury’s main days of music, leading social media users to suggest a date at Worthy Farm could be announced soon.

Sky Bet have slashed odds on Taylor Swift headlining the Pyramid Stage to 5/4, down from 10/1 back in July and making her their third favourite after Fleetwood Mac and Paul McCartney.

The tour also includes four dates in America.

Last week, Glastonbury organisers revealed when tickets for next year’s festival will go on sale. Coach package tickets will be sold first at 6pm Thursday 3rd October, with general admission tickets sold at 9am Sunday 6th October.

The 50th anniversary of the festival will take place from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June 2020.


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” before they headlined Pilton Party last month.

Supergrass reformed ahead of appearing as special guests at the event, dubbed as an annual ‘thank you’ event organised by Glastonbury for local residents and workers. Bands typically appear on the main Glastonbury Festival line-up the year after playing Pilton Party.

NME asked Supergrass if they’d be at Glastonbury 2020 after the gig. They replied: “I don’t think I can say anything about that! I think we shall leave that in the hands of the Gods.”
