Caribou says Glastonbury is his favourite festival to play at

The electronic maestro points to Glastonbury 2015 as one of his best career moments so far

Caribou has shared his love for Glastonbury Festival in a recent Q&A – while not giving anything away when asked about a possible performance at this year’s upcoming event.

Taking place on Reddit earlier this week (March 2), Caribou – AKA Dan Snaith – initiated a Q&A session as part of celebrating the release of his new album ‘Suddenly’, which dropped last month (February 28) via City Slang.

The electronic music maestro was asked various questions from fans interested to know everything from, what his favourite festival is, to whether he’ll be performing at Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary later this summer.

One fan asked: “What’s been your favourite festival to play at so far? – to which Snaith replied: “oh man… that’s tough… it’s hard to top Glastonbury as far as festivals go and we’ve been very lucky with the sets we’ve had there but there are so many amazing ones and we’re so lucky to get to play lots of them…”

Another fan probed the Canadian artist whether he’ll be at Glastonbury this year – and received the following reply: “It’s ask me anything … but I don’t have to answer everything.”

Seeing that the 42-year-old artist wasn’t willing to confirm (or deny) a Glastonbury 2020 appearance, one could definitely assume a performance might be on the cards.

Caribou played the West Holts Stage at Glastonbury in 2015, and The Park Stage in 2011 prior to that.

Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey was the 4th act to be officially confirmed for playing Glastonbury later this summer and joins Taylor Swift who was the second headliner and third artist to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival – after Paul McCartney, and Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier last year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer.

Also confirmed for the bill are Wolf Alice who were announced as playing Glastonbury’s big 5-0 by non-other than Glasto founder, Michael Eavis himself.

Mike SkinnerCarl CoxFun Lovin’ CriminalsCrowded HouseClairoBurna Boy and most recently Jesse Malin are some of the latest artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far – with Kelis, Charli XCX and Manic Street Preachers being strongly rumoured for a possible performance.

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 or enter the various competitions – 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 on April 19.

Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
