More than 90 acts confirmed for Glastonbury Festival amid coronavirus fears

MORE than 90 acts have been confirmed for this year’s Glastonbury Festival – as organiser Emily Eavis says the crew has ‘fingers firmly crossed’ the event will go ahead amid the coronavirus crisis.

Previously confirmed Pyramid Stage headliners Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift will be joined by Kendrick Lamar atop the bill.

Others confirmed to perform include Pet Shop Boys, Crowded House, Elbow, Editors, La Roux, Primal Scream, Sam Fender and countless others – the full poster released on Thursday (March 12) is below.

However, the festival has been thrown into doubt amid concerns over the spread of the coronavirus, with fears large events could be banned come June.

Emily said: “So, after much consideration given the current circumstances, and with the best of intentions, here is the first list of musical acts for Glastonbury 2020.

“As things stand we are still working hard to deliver our 50th anniversary Festival in June and we are very proud of the bill that we have put together over the last year or so.

“No one has a crystal ball to see exactly where we will all be 15 weeks from now, but we are keeping our fingers firmly crossed that it will be here at Worthy Farm for the greatest show on Earth.

“As always this is just a taste of what is to come, we plan to announce many more artists and attractions, area by area, over the coming weeks leading up to the full line-up in May.

“In the meantime we post this with much love to all.”
