Scary Spice hints at Spice Girls Glastonbury 2020 performance with Victoria Beckham
Mel B is sparking up the rumour mill once again by claiming Posh Spice has admitted she might rejoin the Spice Girls if a slot is secured for Glastonbury’s 50th-anniversary celebrations next year.
This follows Mel B’s comments from back in August when Scary Spice spoke about Victoria Beckham’s absence from the Spice Girls’ recent sold-out tour, promising her intent to get all five girls together to perform at Glastonbury’s upcoming 50th anniversary in 2020.
In an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show (September 28), Mel B – real name Melanie Brown – revealed the girl group, which includes Geri Horner, Mel C, and Emma Bunton, have discussed appearing at the legendary festival held at Worthy Farm, Somerset.

According to Mel B all five of the Spice Girls have “had bits and bobs of conversations” about the possibility of playing Glastonbury.
When asked by Ross if the Spice Girls will perform at Glastonbury, she replied “You’re asking me, I’m always going to say yes [we’re doing it] because I’m the one… I’m the one that’s always like, ‘Spice Girls will live forever!'”.
The girl group who recently reformed (without Victoria Beckham) for a sold-out U.K. reunion tour, have reportedly already met with the former Posh Spice to discuss the possibility of playing the Worthy Farm event. And when asked if performing at Glastonbury means including Victoria, Mel said: “I hope so. She hasn’t mentioned it for the sake of just mentioning it.”
The America’s Got Talent judge went on to say that Victoria confirmed her interest in playing Glastonbury to her mother, Andrea Brown, at a party thrown by the fashion designer for all the Spice Mums.
“Not to me, to my mum [she mentioned it],” she explained. “My mum went to her garden party. I wasn’t invited, but my mother was. I think it was her mum’s garden party that she hosted at her mum’s house. All the Spice Girls’ mums go and then you don’t get invited.”
Watch the interview below – they start speaking about Glastonbury at the 1:39 time mark.
Looking ahead to 2020, Glastonbury has confirmed that the first tickets for next year’s festival will go up for grabs at the beginning of October – with coach + ticket packages on sale at 6pm BST on Thursday, 3rd October, before general admission tickets at 9am BST on Sunday, 6th October.
The first line-up taster will probably not be unveiled by the festival’s officials until the end of March/beginning of April – meanwhile, feel free to check out all the latest rumours here.
