Going by what was said in Emily’s interview with NME, the announcement retrospectively appears to have been planned to be announced last night, and comes a day after Del Rey won ‘Best Album In The World’ at NME Awards 2020 for last year’s ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’. At the same ceremony, Eavis took home the ‘Godlike Genius’ Award, while the ‘Best Festival in the World‘ Award went to Glastonbury Festival.
“I’m very pleased to tell you that we have the most incredible Lana Del Rey. I believe it’s her only UK festival which is even better.” – Eavis told NME.
“She’s nearly played a few times actually, and for one reason or another it hasn’t happened, and she was one of our very first confirmations for this year,” Eavis continued.
“It’s amazing, one of the best records of last year and for me a real coup getting her. She’s playing the pyramid on Friday, underneath our headliner.”
The American singer-songwriter who previously appeared at the Festival back in 2014 now becomes the 4th act to be officially confirmed and joins Taylor Swift who was the second headliner and third act 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.
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 – 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.
