The New York City band will be returning to Worthy Farm to headline one of Glastonbury’s stages for its 50th anniversary in June
Huey Morgan has just confirmed that Fun Lovin’ Criminals will be playingon his The Huey Show earlier today (January 4).
Asked by the BBC’s Liz Kershaw whether he has any tour plans for 2020, Morgan replied: “We do […] we’re recording a new record deal […] We’re playing atthis year, so that should be fun […] We’re headlining a stage, we can’t get into it now… But yeah, we’re gonna be doing that…”
Fun Lovin’ Criminals – which includes members Huey Morgan, Brian Leiser, and Frank Benbini – are no strangers to Glastonbury, playing the Festival’s Pyramid Stage supporting slot prior to headliner Skunk Anansie back in 1999 – they also played at Jazzworld (known today as West Holts) in 2008.
The New York-formed band’s debut album ‘Come Find Yourself’ was released in mid-1996, and are best known for their hit “Scooby Snacks”, which dropped that year, and features samples from films by Quentin Tarantino.
You can listen to Huey Morgan Glastonbury confirmation now on BBC Sounds – if you skip to the 2:56:56 time-mark.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift was the second headliner to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival – after Paul McCartney, and joins Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier this year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer – while Mike Skinner and Carl Cox are the two latest big-scale artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far.
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.
There are still ways to go to Glastonbury this year, and 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.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
