Glastonbury has announced that Paul McCartney will headline the Pyramid Stage at the world-famous U.K. festival in 2020, set to take place from June 24th–28th in Pilton, Somerset, England. As of now, the Glastonbury date marks McCartney’s only scheduled 2020 performance.
Says Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis in a statement included with the announcement, “Having Paul McCartney coming back to headline the Pyramid next year is an absolute dream come true. There really was no one that we wanted more for the 50th anniversary.” McCartney’s performance at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage will take place on Saturday, June 27th. The former member of The Beatles previously headlined Glastonbury in 2004.

As of now, the only other performer confirmed for Glastonbury 2020 is Motown superstar Diana Ross, who play the legendary “teatime” slot at the Pyramid Stage on Sunday, June 28th, the festival’s final day.
“To all my fans across the world, this is my tribute to you,” said Ms. Ross upon her announcement in October. “Every concert feels like a private party, I can see your eyes and feel your hearts. I’m coming to Glastonbury, with love.” The Glastonbury performance will mark Diana Ross’s first U.K. performance since 2008.
