The American rocker will be playing Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary this summer

Jesse Malin has self-confirmed for playing Glastonbury 2020.

In an interview with grandlife from last year (2019) – the American rocker said: “Next year [2020] we’re playing Glastonbury, for the 50th anniversary of the Glastonbury Festival. I’m really excited about that.”

Although yet to confirm the stage he will be performing on – one could safely assume a Strummerville performance would be on the cards, as Malin is very much involved with the Joe Strummer Foundation.

A native of New York City, emerging from a punk and rock & roll background – Malin has collaborated with Bruce Springsteen, Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day), Lucinda Williams and Joe Strummer, to name a few.

The US singer-songwriter will apparently be playing The Oxted Sessions right before an appearance at Glastonbury this June.

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 Skinner, Carl CoxFun Lovin’ Criminals,  Crowded HouseClairo and most recently Burna Boy are the latest big-scale artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far.

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.
