The One Direction star says he “routed” his tour around the Festival’s 50th anniversary next year
Louis Tomlinson has spoken about his love for Glastonbury and confirmed he’ll be there for the Festival’s 50th anniversary in 2020.
Taking over BBC Radio 1 earlier today (December 25), as part of their Christmas Day Superstar Takeovers special – Tomlinson got to pick his perfect playlist songs while reminiscing over some of his big moments from the past and One Direction’s early years.
Speaking about Glastonbury Tomlinson said: “I’ve even routed my tour next year around Glastonbury, that’s how much of a fan I am!” – “Very excited to see Paul McCartney.”, he added.
Speaking about earlier this year when he attended Glastonbury as a spectator, he said: “People tell you that you’re going to do a lot of walking. Now, I’m getting quite unfit right… and the amount of walking… I looked at my steps every day, it’s like 10 miles every day. The place is massive, you definitely definitely pay for it after. I’ve still got a knot on my back from Glastonbury this year.”

There is definitely a massive Glastonbury seized gap in Tomlinson’s tour dates for 2020 – so theoretically speaking, in addition to also attending the Festival as a punter, he would be able to also fit in a gig.
You can listen to the full Radio 1 Takeover show now on BBC Sound – he starts mentioning Glastonbury at the 44:00 time-mark.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift was the second headliner to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival – after Paul McCartney, and joins Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier this year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer – while Mike Skinner and Carl Cox are the two 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 next 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 (which don’t include travel) on April 19.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
