Ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney is confirmed as this year’s Glastonbury Festival headliner

Sir Paul McCartney, the ex-Beatle, was confirmed as a featured artist on Saturday June 27 at the legendary Glastonbury Festival. Macca will perform on one of the most famous platforms in the world, the Pyramid Stage.
The former Beatle had been lined up for the 2020 festival, which was ultimately postponed due to the pandemic. Performing a single well after his 80th birthday, Sir Paul will become the oldest performer to headline Worthy Farm in Glastonbury, Somerset.
No official announcement of this year’s festival lineup has yet been made, but it is known that sets by Noel Gallagher and Haim will precede the legendary Liverpudlian. Friday night will feature Billie Eilish, and Sunday, when the festival closes, will be Kendrick Lamar.
Still rocking, Macca perform their Got Back Tour across the United States, starting in April and ending in mid-June, just in time to appear at Glastonbury.
“Paul’s set will be an absolute must. He’s really excited about it and is determined to put on one hell of a show, filled with all the hits,” a music insider confirmed. “He feels really ready to hit the road again in the United States, then will be eager to tackle Glasto when he returns”
Adding: “There were discussions about whether he should continue with shows this year due to the situation with Covid, but he decided he really wanted to perform. Glastonbury is such an amazing event to headline, and he knows it will be an amazing time for him.”
