Glastonbury delivers 50th anniversary lineup: Kendrick Lamar, Thom Yorke, Taylor Swift, FKA Twigs, and more
We now have one small pinpoint of light in an otherwise pitch black tunnel for events at the moment. As spring festivals, tours, and professional sports come to a screeching halt and travel restrictions tighten, Glastonbury picks an apt time to deliver their highly anticipated 50th anniversary lineup, set for this summer. Headliners Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar, and a special Sunday teatime legend’s slot for Diana Ross, lead a massive lineup teeming with talent. Amid the current tailspin events season is in, the 2020 billing gives concertgoers a foothold of hope to cling to.
Robyn, Lana Del Rey, Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals, Haim, Kacey Musgraves, Dua Lipa, Charli XCX, Caribou, London Grammar, Thundercat, and FKA twigs are among the slew of artists booked for this year’s gathering at Worthy Farm. Scheduled to run June 24 – 28, Glastonbury’s lineup features a diverse array of current wavemakers and veteran acts alike, pairing the likes of Clairo with TLC, and Soccer Mommy with acts like The Avalanches and Kelis. See the full lineup below.

#repost @emily_eavis: So, after much consideration given the current circumstances, and with the best of intentions, here is the first list of musical acts for Glastonbury 2020. As things stand we are still working hard to deliver our 50th anniversary Festival in June and we are very proud of the bill that we have put together over the last year or so. No one has a crystal ball to see exactly where we will all be 15 weeks from now, but we are keeping our fingers firmly crossed that it will be here at Worthy Farm for the greatest show on Earth! As always this is just a taste of what is to come, we plan to announce many more artists and attractions, area by area, over the coming weeks leading up to the full line-up in May. In the meantime we post this with much love to all. (There’s also a non-circular version of the line-up – and full text list – on our website now) #glastonbury #glastonbury2020
