 Tame Impala rumoured to be at Glastonbury 2019

Tame Impala are rumoured to perform at Glastonbury 2019, following an incredible Pyramid Stage performance at Glastonbury 2016.

The Australian band are set to headline Coachella this year, dubbed ‘America’s answer to Glastonbury’ by The Guardian. Also headlining the Californian event are Ariana Grande and Childish Gambino.

Since the Coachella announcement, fans have been predicting that Tame Impala will appear at Glasto on social media.

Previously, frontman Kevin Parker spoke to Matt Wilkinson of Beats 1 about hypothetically being asked to headline the festival.

He said: “What’s funny is that I was chatting to my manager about it, and I was like ‘If we played Glastonbury again, what’s gonna happen?’

“Because there was talk of maybe headlining The Other Stage.”

“But I was like, ‘We’ve had a taste at the Pyramid Stage now!’

“The vibe was so strong! Yeah, I guess so. I mean we’d have to double the laser and confetti amount.”

The Independent called Tame Impala’s Pyramid Stage performance at Glastonbury 2016 “the most impressive set of the festival so far“.

Bookmakers Sky Bet are currently offering 18/1 odds on Tame Impala headlining at Glastonbury 2019, matching the odds of George Ezra and fellow Coachella headliner Ariana Grande.

Previously one of the favourites, the chances of Paul McCartney headlining took a serious blow today when he announced a tour date in Las Vegas on the Saturday of Glastonbury.

The only Pyramid stage headliner confirmed so far is Stormzy, whilst Janelle Monae will headline the West Holts stage.

Kylie Minogue will take the Sunday teatime ‘legends slot’ on the Pyramid Stage.

Emily Eavis told BBC Radio last week that a completely new area will be introduced near The Park, and that Block 9 will be expanded to double its previous size.

The full line-up is usually announced around the end of May, but more acts are usually revealed every few weeks. Other artists ‘self-confirm’ by letting slip in interviews or during their gigs.
