Emily Eavis has invited Jeff Goldblum to return to Worthy Farm for Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary in 2020
Jeff Goldblum has expressed his desire to return to Glastonbury following his appearance at the Worthy Farm-held event at the 2019 edition of the Festival.
The iconic actor and musician is best known for Hollywood franchises like Jurassic Park, Independence Day, and The Fly – but he’s nurtured another love, albeit quietly, for most of his life: jazz.
Appearing on BBC One’s The One Show earlier this evening (Friday, November 1), Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis was talking about the Festival 50th anniversary in 2020 and the new Glastonbury 50 book. Upon mentioning Diana Ross as being appointed to next year’s Legend slot, Goldblum was quick to say “I’ll be there, I wanna see that”. Eavis then asked “You’ll come back, won’t you Jeff?”, with the actor/jazz musician replying “If you invite me, I’ll be there – I had the best time ever”.
