Paul McCartney To Headline Glastonbury 2020

The famed Glastonbury music festival has announced its headliner for 2020, with none other than Paul McCartney set to take the stage.

According to the Guardian, the former Wings frontman will close out the U.K. music festival as the final performer on the Pyramid Stage on Saturday, June 27.

With the 2020 event being Glastonbury’s 50th, festival organizer Emily Eavis told the Guardian that landing McCartney is “an absolute dream come true. There really was no one that we wanted more for the 50th anniversary.”

Ahead of the announcement, Sir Paul teased the news with a celeb-infused rebus, sharing images of composer Philip Glass, actress Emma Stone, and rock pioneer Chuck Berry — Glass, Stone, Berry.

Meanwhile, the Guardian also points out that McCartney will celebrate his 78th birthday a week before the festival, officially making him the festival’s oldest headliner ever.
