The London-based singer-songwriter will “100%” be returning to Worthy Farm
Jessie Ware has become the first major artist to confirm a performance at Glastonbury 2021.
Ware announced the news on the latest episode of her hit podcast ‘Table Manners’ earlier today (June 24) – which featured special guest, Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis.
Replying to a question posed Eavis during the podcast chat on whether she would want to return to play Glastonbury “next year” – Ware replied: “Absolutely, one hundred per cent. I was like there, watching my opportunity to play this album pass me by […] I’m coming, I will absolutely be there, with bells on!”

Ware’s new album ‘What’s Your Pleasure’ is out later this week, and she was due to bring the house-focused record to Glastonbury’s dance area over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Basil Brush – which some would argue is as “major” as it gets has – has also self-confirmed for Glastonbury earlier this month.
Glastonbury 2021 will take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 23th to Sunday 27th June.
