Michael Eavis on Glastonbury 2020 headliner: “You would love HER to bits”

Could one of the two yet-unnamed headliners for Glastonbury Festival’s 50th-anniversary be a solo female artist?

Michael Eavis has said one of the two remaining headliners yet to be announced for Glastonbury 2020 is a female.

In an interview with BBC Somerset’s Andy Bennet earlier today (November 22), the Glastonbury founder spoke about his and daughter Emily Eavis’ new Sunday Times bestseller book – ‘Glastonbury 50’.

When asked by Bennet about how planning is coming along for Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary in 2020 – “I’ve got two of my favourite headliners… already booked […] I can’t tell you the second one […] you would love her to bits… everybody does […] but no names at the moment…” said Eavis.

He then went on to confirm that “all of the headliners” have now been booked for next year’s event.


In addition to discussing the book, headliners and a verity of topics in regards to the legendary Festival – like how he manages to keep young at 84 years old, the burning down of the Pyramid Stage back in 1994, Chris Martin’s new album and Arcadia – Eavis also mentioned the fact that he just got the approval for the new Co-Op shop store in the village of Pilton, adjacent to the festival site. Something which he is very proud of and been working on for 3 years.

Meanwhile, Paul McCartney was the first headliner to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival 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.

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.
