Could Harry become the first member of One Direction to perform live at Glastonbury Festival?
Following Harry Styles’ North America tour dates announcement, it is now rather unlikely he would be playing Glastonbury 2020 – that being said, as always, with Glastonbury Festival you just never know, and to be 100% certain we would have to wait for the official announcement on this when it comes.

Harry Styles is the latest act to be rumoured for a performance at Glastonbury 2020.
According to a source which told the Daily Star‘s Showbiz: “Harry’s solo career is a huge departure from the pop stuff he did with One Direction. There’s a genuine respect for the music he’s making and festival organisers know he can pull in the crowds.”
The former One Direction star could become the first member of the boy band – which was also comprised of Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and formerly Zayn Malik – to play Glastonbury Festival’s 50th-anniversary event next June.
The rumour comes hot of the heels of Harry announcing his second solo album ‘Fine Line’ – set to drop on December 13 – and will be the follow-up to his 2017 self-titled debut.
Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.
In addition to being able to volunteer – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale (which don’t include travel) on April 19.
Meanwhile, Mike Skinner and Carl Cox are the latest big-scale artist to self-confirm for Glastonbury 50th, following official announcement confirmations of both Wolf Alice and Diana Ross for the 2020 bill.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
