The US rockers seem all but officially confirmed for Glastonbury’s 50th-anniversary celebrations this June
Aerosmith have heightened already strong rumours of the band performing at Glastonbury 2020, after another supposed hint about a possible gig at the Pilton event.
According to reports, the US rockers have for the second time in two months, listed “Glastonbury, UK” as a stop-off on their 2020 tour schedule in an email to fans.
The listing – allegedly sent out on Monday (January 27) – shows the band will play a gig in Somerset on June 27, the Saturday of the Festival, in between shows in Prague and Paris.
This comes after what initially seemed like an unintended leak-confirmation by another official mail-out sent to Aerosmith fans last month (December 6) – which also listed the American rock icons as playing “Glastonbury, UK” on June 27.
Two lots of confirmations received!

Additionally, BBC Radio 2’s Johnnie Walker also appeared to confirm the rock band for Glastonbury 2020 on The Rock Show last month (December 14) – saying: “Some gig news about Aerosmith […] forgot to tell you, they will be playing at Glastonbury next June – the big 50th-anniversary show. That should be quite something else”.
Aerosmith have yet to be officially confirmed by Glastonbury Festival itself, but if they do, it will be their debut performance at the Worthy Farm-held event.
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 last year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer – while Mike Skinner, Carl Cox, Fun Lovin’ Criminals and most recently Crowded House are the latest big-scale artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far.
Also confirmed for the bill are Wolf Alice who were announced as playing Glastonbury’s 50th by non-other than Glasto founder, Michael Eavis himself.
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.
