Next up in the series of main stage playlists of acts who would’ve been playing Glastonbury 2020 is the West Holts Stage
Glastonbury continues sharing stage-by-stage playlists compiling artists who were booked to play the Festival’s 50th anniversary this summer (you can listen below).
Earlier this evening (April 21), Glastonbury organisers shared a message via their social media channels, saying: “Next up in our series of main stage playlists updated with the acts who would’ve been playing there at Glastonbury 2020 is West Holts. Enjoy!”

Last year, Glastonbury shared individual Spotify playlists for the Pyramid Stage, Other Stage, John Peel Stage, West Holts and The Park Stage.
The ‘West Holts 2020’ playlist includes music from the likes of Kelis, Thundercat, Tom Misch, The Isley Brothers, TLC and more.
This follows updated playlists by the Festival of both The Park Stage and the John Peel Stage which were shared earlier in the month – in addition to a very special playlist from Glasto founder Michael Eavis, made up of “tracks that remind him of the festival’s first decade”.
Cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the 2020 edition of the Festival was set to be held at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday, June 24 through Sunday, June 28 – after the line-up poster and first wave of artists was released (March 12) which included Diana Ross, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, Lana Del, Kendrick Lamar and many more.
In a message from organisers, announcing Glastonbury 2020’s cancellation, Michael and Emily Eavis explained that cancelling this year’s event was their “only viable option” following “new government measures announced this week” to prevent the spread of the pandemic – saying: “We’re so sorry that this decision has been made. It was not through choice. But we look forward to welcoming you back to these fields next year and until then, we send our love and support to all of you.”
Doing their best to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic – the Festival, headed by Michael and Emily Eavis, donated cotton tote bags to hospitals in need, while also giving away thousands of litres of hand sanitiser, gloves and face masks meant for Glastonbury 2020 to frontline emergency services – including Avon and Somerset Police and NHS staff. They also gave away several thousand ponchos which were meant for Glastonbury 2020 and have been repurposed as anti-coronavirus PPE.
