Kelis set for a “strictly confidential” Glastonbury performance

The New York singer is said to be returning to Worthy Farm for Glastonbury’s big 5-0 this summer

Kelis appears to be set for a performance at Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary this June.

Online records store Townsend Music seems to have let it slip that the American singer-songwriter will be performing at Worthy Farm later this year – The description for Kelis’ ‘Kaleidoscope’ pre-order album page reads: “To celebrate the album’s 20th Anniversary Kelis is embarking on a UK and European tour, a Glastonbury performance (strictly confidential), and releasing a double LP on orange vinyl. This vinyl reissue will feature 4 alternative versions of the tracks Caught Out There & Get Along With You, all on vinyl for the first time.”

The New York singer played Glastonbury back in 2010 and most recently in 2014, where she took to the Pyramid Stage on Saturday afternoon.

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 50th by non-other than Glasto founder, Michael Eavis himself.

Mike Skinner, Carl CoxFun Lovin’ Criminals,  Crowded House and most recently Clairo 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 – 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.
