Vampire Weekend drop MASSIVE hint regarding a possible performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival
Earlier today (Thursday, January 24), Vampire Weekend‘s Ezra Koenig went on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 2 to discuss the band’s two new songs and upcoming album entitled ‘Father Of The Bride’, while also talking about the chances of them playing this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Whiley asked: “Will there be a Glastonbury performance this year?”, to which Ezra replied: “ho, I’m hoping so” – Whiley responded with “oh, I hope so too” which sounded more like a *wink-wink” confirmation kinda moment. It did sound very much like they’ll be there. If not performing, camping at least!
Further into the discussion, Ezra went on to mention the fact that Vampire Weekend played the Worthy Farm festival three times before, and how much doing Glastonbury as a punter was a “life-changing experience” it was for him.
“To come back to Glastonbury is something I really hope happens,” said Ezra.
You can listen to the full interview over at BBC Sounds – they start talking about Glastonbury at around 1:50:00
So far, Stormzy has been announced as the first Pyramid Stage headliner, while Janelle Monae has been confirmed to top the bill on the West Holts Stage and Kylie Minogue will take the Sunday afternoon ‘Legends Slot’.
Although the line-up will probably not be unveiled by the festival’s officials until the end of March / beginning of April, you can check out the latest Glastonbury 2019 confirmed headliners & line-up rumours roundup HERE.
Glastonbury 2019 will take place between June 26 and 30 at Worthy Farm, Pilton.
