Rowetta – born Rowetta Idah, also known Rowetta Satchell – is an English singer, best known for her work with the Happy Mondays, recording and touring with the band from 1991-2000 and recently reforming with the original lineup.
As always, with Glastonbury Festival you just never know, and to be 100% certain we would obviously have to wait for the official announcement on this when it comes.
The Happy Mondays played Glastonbury both in 1990 and 2000. Watch them perform ‘Hallelujah’ at the 1990 edition of the Festival below.
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.
