Could we see Liam Gallagher play the iconic festival for the third consecutive Glastonbury-year in a row?
Liam Gallagher said he will be going to Glastonbury next year for its 50th anniversary, even though he has “not been asked” to play.
The Singer has played the legendary festival countless times before, both as a solo artist, as well as with his previous band, Oasis, which first played the festival in 1994, then in 1995 and finally in 2004.
Asked earlier today (Wednesday, October 9) on Twitter whether he will be “playing Glasto again” – the 47-year-old RocknRolla replied: “Not been asked but you know me I’ll play I’m gonna be there so you never know”.

Liam last played Glastonbury earlier this year – taking to the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night (June 29), prior to The Killers headlining slot – where he sang a number of Oasis hits along with several solo tracks. Prior to that, the Champagne Supernova superstar had also played the Worthy Farm heald-event in 2017.
Despite winning over fans with his rock ‘n’ roll antics and stage presence, estranged older brother Noel Gallagher (52), was less than impressed with his performance.
Speaking to The Guardian, Noel said: “I don’t think I’ve ever been so embarrassed for a man in my entire life.
“He’s pulled off the incredible magic trick of making those Oasis songs sound weedy and thin.
“And he looked like he was having the worst day of his life, walking around in what looks like a pair of my son’s pyjamas, shouting into a mic about some perceived injustice… if you can’t sing ’em, don’t play ’em!”

Apart from the chance for fans to get tickets for Glastonbury 2020 in the April resales, there is currently also an offer in a competition by Waterstones to mark the release of the ‘Glastonbury 50’ book.
Following Glastonbury‘s ticket sell-out, the festival has launched a rare and special opportunity for those without tickets to get their hands on a pair. There are 50 pairs of tickets up for grabs right now which will be sold by ballot, to commemorate the 50th-anniversary of Glastonbury Festival.
Meanwhile – Glastonbury founder, Michael Eavis, has already confirmed Wolf Alice will be on the Glastonbury 2020 bill, and Supergrass are rumoured to make an appearance after reforming to play this year’s Pilton Party.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
