Macca’s daughter Stella will miss her “religious trip tothis weekend”
Stella McCartney – daughter of American photographer, musician, and animal rights activist Linda McCartney and singer-songwriter Sir Paul McCartney – appears to have self-confirmed dad Paul for a performance at next year’s Glastonbury Festival.
In a tweet posted via her official Twitter account earlier today (June 26), Stella said: “Gonna miss my religious trip tothis weekend; let’s celebrate it and count the days till next year. In life, one has to wait for the best… So, Dad, we will see you then! x Stella”

This obviously doesn’t officially confirm Macca – which was set to headline Glastonbury 2020 on the Saturday night this summer – but is perhaps somewhat of an insight into what can be expected.
Earlier this week, also speaking about Paul McCartney was Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis, which said she really hopes “that he’ll be back next year .”
Meanwhile, Jessie Ware appears to be the only major artist to self-confirm for Glastonbury 2021 so far.
Glastonbury was set to celebrate its 50th anniversary this summer – with headliners in Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift – but was forced to cancel this year’s instalment due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The news of the cancellation was followed by a joint announcement from Glastonbury Festival and the BBC informing fans a celebratory run of programming across the Glasto-weekend is to be expected instead.
Earlier this week, the BBC revealed the full list of sets that will be available to watch over the weekend, “minus a few surprise classic sets [which they’ll] share over the weekend”.
The iPlayer pop-up channel launched yesterday (June 25), and features sets from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The Charlatans, Fontaines DC, Little Simz, Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish, Jay-Z, Kano, Dave, Bon Iver, Lady Gaga, PJ Harvey, Arctic Monkeys, and many more. Check out the full list here.
In a message from organisers, announcing the Festival’s cancellation, Michael and Emily Eavis explained that cancelling this year’s event was their “only viable option” following “new government measures” to prevent the spread of the pandemic – saying: “We’re so sorry that this decision has been made. It was not through choice. But we look forward to welcoming you back to these fields next year and until then, we send our love and support to all of you.”
