UPDATED: Glastonbury 2021 line-up and rumours

A constantly updated list of artists confirmed, rumoured and ruled out for Glastonbury 2021 so far…

As with every Glastonbury-year, the speculation about who might play the legendary festival is always very high, and with 2021 fast approaching – the Glasto rumour-mill has already been kicked into gear.

The first line-up taster for Glastonbury 2021 will probably not be unveiled by the Festival’s officials until the end of March/beginning of April, with the full line-up usually being unveiled towards the end of May.

That being said, with the cancellation of Glastonbury 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, one could speculate that a lot of the acts which had been booked for 2020 will roll over to 2021.

In addition, there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements, by divulging the news during interviews, via social media or website listings.


Below you’ll find a compiled list* of all the acts officially confirmed for Glastonbury 2021 thus far, alongside self-confirmed or rumoured artists who are still in the frame to headline or make the line-up at the 2021 edition of the Festival, alongside acts which have been ‘ruled out’ from playing due to whatever the circumstance may be (sourced mainly but not limited to Glastonbury’s official website and various forums including eFestivals, in addition to Twitter posts, comments, interviews, clashing tour dates and exclusives announcements).

Feel free to bookmark this page to your favourites, as we will be constantly updating it over the coming weeks and months to reflect changes on the ground throughout the buildup to Glastonbury Festival 2021.

Meanwhile, Glastonbury Organiser Emily Eavis has recently issued a statement via Twitter saying there are “no plans to move next year’s Glastonbury to September 2021″, while also confirming that the ticket resale has been moved back from October to April [2021] – plus, the free cancellation deadline has been extended until the end of January.

This comes after Glastonbury Festival founder, Michael Eavis, discussed the possibility of Glastonbury 2021 going ahead, saying he’s “still hoping, fighting and working at it all the time to make sure it happens next year [2021]”

Glastonbury 2021 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 23th to Sunday 27th June.
