Sir Paul McCartney is said to headline the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday night
PILTON, ENGLAND (CelebrityAccess) – Sir Paul McCartney is rumored to headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday night, one night after confirmed headliner Billie Eilish.
If the reports are true, McCartney will take the stage a week after his 80th birthday. This summer’s edition will be the first to take place since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The festival’s 50th anniversary rendition, scheduled for 2020, had McCartney starring alongside Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar. Swift has since “politely declined” to take part in this year’s festival, as reported National news.
Glastonbury Festival organizer Emily Eavis said the full line-up will be released this week. Lamar, who was to be the third headliner for 2020, would have taken the last spot in the announcement. Other acts believed to be in attendance are Haim and Noel Gallagher.
Glastonbury is one of the biggest music festivals in the world, taking place in the remote village of Pilton in south-west England. The event has featured the Rolling Stones, Metallica, Dolly Parton, Jay-Z/Beyonce and Stormzy as headliners over the festival’s 50-year history.
Glastonbury will return to Worthy Farm from June 22-26. The 2022 festival has been sold out for a long time.
