Though countless concerts and festivals, including Coachella and Stagecoach, have been postponed due to increasing concern over the coronavirus, Glastonbury is remaining as scheduled, and announced its star-studded lineup on Thursday (March 12).
Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift and Sir Paul McCartney will headline the five-day festival, along with performers including Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals, Cage the Elephant, Camila Cabello, Charli XCX, Dua Lipa, Diana Ross, Angel Olsen, FKA Twigs, Glass Animals, Haim, Kacey Musgraves, Lana Del Rey, Thundercat and many more.
“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!” Glastonbury co-organizer Emily Eavis wrote on social media announcing the lineup.
The festival will take place at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset from June 24 to 28. See the lineup below, or on Glastonbury’s website here.

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)
