The Mancunian singer/songwriter hopes to return to Worthy Farm for Glastonbury Festival’s 50th anniversary in 2020
Paul Heaton – formerly of the Housemartins and the Beautiful South – said he’ll “hopefully” be at Glastonbury next year for the Festival’s 50th anniversary.
The Mancunian singer/songwriter statement came in response to a question posed to him during a late-night Q&A session on Twitter – “Glastonbury next year??”, to which Heaton replied: “Hopefully!”.

Heaton, no stranger to the Worthy Farm-held event, played Glastonbury both in 2014 and 2016 with former Beautiful South vocalist Jacqui Abbott.

Following the band break up in 2007, Paul Heaton released three albums as a solo career artist, and later reunited with Jacqui Abbott in 2014 to record the album ‘What Have We Become?’. The duo’s fourth album – titled ‘Manchester Calling’ – is set to drop in March 2020.
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.
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 next 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.
