The American singer-songwriter confirmed herself for Glastonbury’s 50 anniversary at NME Awards 2020 – and she’s promised to take her mum
Clairo has confirmed that she’ll be performing at Glastonbury‘s 50th anniversary this June.
Speaking at the NME Awards 2020 after picking up the ‘Best New Act In The World’ award on Wednesday (February 12), the American singer-songwriter revealed her plans to head to Worthy Farm this summer. “We are at Glastonbury, I have just found out!,” she told NME.
The ‘Pretty Girl’ singer released her debut album titled ‘Immunity’ last year through Fader Label. The album was co-produced by Clairo and Rostam Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend.
Asked if she’d ever been to the Festival before – “No, but I promised my mom that I would take her,” the 21-year-old artist replied. “We always used to watch the Palladia Channel that would show all of the old Glastonbury performances. I remember watching performances with her and promising that if I ever got to go to Glastonbury that I would take her.”
“My mom is the coolest person in the world. She is basically my best friend.” – Watch the full interview below.
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 50th by non-other than Glasto founder, Michael Eavis himself.
