He?! Worlds first Lana's a fella

Check out a top band headlong other stages Erica band absolutely brilliant band live and a Glastonbury anthem would be one off there song don’t punch a granny while she shaves

She could bore the leg off a chair.

ive heard of her obviously, but being old thought probably not for me. Wrong! Shes She’s done some very good stuff, hope she doesn’t clash with one of my must see’s.

Well that will be boring, she'll sing the cows to sleep 😴

Turning into v festival

This is not fantastic. Personally, I cannot abide her.

Looks like I'll be bringing some additional Lithium on to the farm this year

How about this for a days line up, rioke traore, Laura mvula, haim, the xx, Alabama Shakes, florence and the machine.

She was great before. Moody music. Barefoot. Hippy dress. Smoking a cig. I thought she was mesmerising.

Lana del doom

I was so looking forward to seeing her at Glastonbury last time but jeez what a let down.So boring

was awful at latitude. Everyone left

Since Emily started taking over the bookings.....nose dive #ruiningit

Lana Del NOPE 😴😴😴

Hope the sound is better than at Latitude last year - Lana was dreadful

Was it as the other headliner? She's good like but still waiting for some big band announcement

Fantastic more summer time sadness writes songs sing most are pop girls she is the real deal

I've seen her at Sziget Festival . It was the worst concert I've ever seen on the main stage. That's definitely not the place where she belongs.

Em qual dia?

Amy Munro lana playing glasto main stage

In other news Paul McCartney's also headlining, much better💕💕💕💕💕

Wolf Alice?

Glasto is not the hippy fest it was it's now wank

So you’re awarded the middle finger

Well done Emily you work so hard to put on this amazing festival you deserve it x

It was the best when her dad ran it. Sorry but ever since she has taken over its been gash

If Emily is a good like genius does that make Michael an actual God. Michael, great keeper of the tickets, we neel before you.

A rather unfortunate view of the award trophy 🤭

So pleased@EmilyEavis. Well deserved. Hope that your father is keeping well? My father RIP- spent many hours talking to your father @musgrove hospital. Sending regards x

Shame she couldn't get some decent acts on this year's line up 😆


Congrats Michael Eavis 👏🏻👏🏻

Definitely the best, well done lass. ...

Well done you xxxxx

Amazing well deserved Glastonbury is so much more than just a festival. And feel prevaliged everytime we get a ticket.

And yet I can never get a ticket for Glastonbury

Great result Emily and of course Glasto is the best in the world

Cracking festival but godlike genius for Emily? She’s done a good job moving it forward, but surely Michael is the genius?! I’ve decorated my front room, but I can’t take credit for building my house.

And to think she has made it to this position without any advantages or nepotism. Truly admirable.

Best in world?? Well done NME awards now tell us something we don’t know already 👏👏👏

Give us two tickets to celebrate, cheers x

Well done, not that anyone needed to tell us that Glastonbury was the best festival in the world.

Wow! That’s fantastic and well deserved 💚🥂🍾

Best wishes Emily looking forward to 2020 glastonbury 🙋

Congrats now go Book Madonna and Elton for 50th, 👍

Turning the festival into a corporate money machine with dubious main stages acts?

Congratulations and well deserved!! 👍 I've been lucky.. I've seen Blondie open the pyramid, I've held hands with beautiful strangers (Athlete's Wires) and I've seen Paul McCartney get 100,000 people singing... Nah.. nah n nah n nah naa... What an amazing festival!! God like genius.. seems about right! Congratulations again! 👏👏👏

Jesse Tristram psychedelic mermaid revival....

Matt Payne I wonder if a version of there’s no one the better will be good enough for the pyramid 🙃

Bea Ewe, nie ma wyjscia, musimy wystapic...:-)

Matt Ritchie...I think it may be time to share your nose fluting with the world!

Steve Jones your lad n his pals? Imagine them playing at Glastonbury!

Joanne Hamilton Muncaster think we’d stand a chance? #DesperateMeasures 💕💕

Mark Daly will we get the band back together?

Hi there! We are a group of dancers and we would like to perform at Glastonbury festival, doing walkabouts or/and workshop of Zumba latin music. How can we apply for it?? Thanks 😊

Ian, Paul, Simon another way to get to Glastonbury this year, form your own boyband?

Lydia Roberts Nina Sood Nayan Thampi couldn’t get tickets shall we perform instead? Girl band?

Marc Stuart Darrell time to get the band band together. Appreciate we haven’t practiced in a while..

Gregory S Davies Greg Davies: you should send in your new BBC Introducing record of the week material!

Time to break out the triangle Charlotte!

Mark Rose Finally you can broadcast your talent of mashing 4 songs together at the top of your voice 🤣

Does the link to a song have to be on soundcloud or can it be other platforms such as Spotify or YouTube?

Any new rocks bands come and check out a new rock page called Emerging New Rock Bands !

Soundcloud... really?

I play a mean triangle....would that suffice?

It’s a glorious, frosty morning on the farm. ...

It’s a glorious, frosty morning on the farm.

Praying I come this year

Even the grass looks bored.... Bored obviously thinking about the droll auditory bashing from the geriatric Scouse it's going to be forced to endure on the Saturday night!

not long until the eco hypocrites destroy it. I wonder what the carbon footprint is of a festival with all those bands flying in? Does Glasto still have a helipad?


Connor Mckittrick Peter Wilson Marc Lewin looks mad

Anybody going solo this year...I'm looking for some peeps to share the experience with! Weirdos need not reply 😁

I’m 50 this year Glastonbury, you are 50 this year...tried and failed to get tickets, will try again in April. It’s got to be!!!!!!


Looking forward to Daft Punk

What if you had Msrie White from Hastings. Would you go then???

Can't. Bloody. Wait. 👌

Steven Dixon “can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?” Obvious 🤣

No Fences in place, looks like an easy break in lads should April fail Andrew Lapham Rory David

Well there is grass and we know Supergrass will be announced but that does assume the frosty bit is irrelevant si I'm not sure.

It's a reference to frosty the snowman playing the legend slot on Sunday afternoon you 'melts'

Alex Dyer Rhys Smith Michael Richard Joe Thomas - not long now.

I'd love to look at how the flora have changed in the field over the last 50 years - there's for sure a selective pressure on plants under feet that should mean hardier grasses are selected for over repeat seasons, even with the fallow years? You might even see certain genes being preferentially expressed as the plants respond to their environment by up-regulating different proteins to adapt to a more changeable environment. Would be a neat research project.

Be even more glorious if you could give me 2 tickets so I could celebrate my 40th birthday at Glastonbury 50th 😉👍🏻

Michael Broadbent ... can’t wait xxx

Rebecca Ellen Bingham

Tilly Norman

Coldplay again.

Forget about the frost, who’s the last headliner?

Can I have 2 tickets pls

That is beautiful!

For anyone that doesn’t like it I have two parents that want tickets! X

Leanne Sp Bailey December 15, 2019 - 5:16 pm

Ffks seriously whats happened to Glastonbury…

Ian Astley December 15, 2019 - 5:16 pm

Hmm lame way to end the weekend – Still let’s hope Foals are on the other stage at the same time

Ashleigh Weyman-Beard December 15, 2019 - 5:16 pm

Glad there’s 100s of other stages this year. I’m over the moon with Diana Ross though.

Really though it would have been Gaga!!

Kayleigh Howlett December 15, 2019 - 5:17 pm

She’s an international star beating Michael Jackson’s award total, the kids will love her and she’ll no doubt put on a fantastic show! Plus it’s amazing to see Glasto have a female headliner for the 50th! We haven’t got tickets and she’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I’m sure we will be watching at home if we don’t get April resale!

Paul Warren December 15, 2019 - 5:19 pm

Like it or not, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lemar ( who I’m sure will be the other headliner ) are 2 of the biggest artists in the world right now , go and watch something else but please dont complain about the biggest festival booking the biggest acts !!

Stuart Bradley December 15, 2019 - 5:19 pm

Glastonbury headliners arent what they used to be are they?

Claire Marie December 15, 2019 - 5:19 pm

You won’t see me there! I will be at any other stage but there!!!

Ray Grooves Reef December 15, 2019 - 5:20 pm

Glastonbury has lost it last few years it’s Top of the plops music for 14 year olds 😂

Martyn Catanach December 15, 2019 - 5:20 pm

So glad I didn’t get a ticket, would have been very upset to pay all that money to see ‘artists’ who do not really reflect Glastonbury on a momentous date …

Joanne Rowe December 15, 2019 - 5:20 pm

let’s hope at least The Other Stage has a Pyramid stage worthy headliner then as promised!!!

Donald J Makin December 15, 2019 - 5:20 pm

Think it a good feel good closer to the festival. She’s a good artist and can play. Songs aren’t bad.

Michael Clark December 15, 2019 - 5:21 pm

Gutted I didn’t get tickets this makes the pain a little better

Tom Flint December 15, 2019 - 5:22 pm

That’s a real shame, it was an opportunity for a huge name to headline a major birthday for the festival. It needed to be a massive worldwide BAND not a pop star – U2, Guns n Roses even Bon Jovi!! I don’t know, but someone with longevity and history much like the festival!
Nothing against Taylor Swift but this is a really bad call by the organisers!!!

Jase Nash December 15, 2019 - 5:23 pm

Couldn’t think of anyone worse…. oh wait, Coldplay!

Mark Atkinson December 15, 2019 - 5:25 pm

She mimed really well on Strictly last last night. And that song: Wow really rocked! What a masterpiece.

Stephen Barnes December 15, 2019 - 5:25 pm

Should have been a British legend or at least an all time Music legend for the Sunday night performance (sorry but Taylor Swift is not one of them )

Carol Hart December 15, 2019 - 5:26 pm

And predictable whingeing starts. Don’t like her go somewhere else. Life would be very boring if everyone liked the same music.

Felicity Panting December 15, 2019 - 5:27 pm

I can’t wait to see Taylor or anyone else! It’s about the experience just as much the music! Some artists are not to everyone’s taste but Glasto is a festival for everyone! See you there Swifty!!!

Shad Everett December 15, 2019 - 5:33 pm

Love reading these comments. From proper bore-off music snobs (aka Trolls) who probably didn’t manage to get a ticket, have never been and/or don’t realise there are like another 800 or so acts all over the site they could go see if they wanted! Tell me I’m wrong!?

Felixx Keeling December 15, 2019 - 5:33 pm

Omg yes!!! At last! The female voice of the last 50 years. Thank god it’s not someone obvious like the verve or Elton John. IM FEELING 22!!!!

Jamie Gibson December 15, 2019 - 5:33 pm

Just glad to be lucky enough to be able to enjoy life tbh. We’ll be walking around Worthy farm soaking it all in and that includes eclectic musical treats on ALL stages 😉

Stephen Hackworth December 15, 2019 - 5:34 pm

I won’t be watching her when I’m there, but only because I saw her at Wembley and she was awesome, don’t think she could top it.

Christopher Noble December 15, 2019 - 5:35 pm

Glastonbury is a music festival not just rock festival

Simon Barnett December 15, 2019 - 5:36 pm

The more people moan, the more I want them to fill the Pyramid with pop stars out of pure spite.

“LOL NOT GOIN NOW”, lets be honest Darren, you’ve never been, never well, and will be flicking idly through what BBC are showing while we’re having the time of our lives, either in front of (world famous megastar, purveyor of more banging tunes than you can shake a stick at) Taylor Swift, or at one of the other 6 or 7 big stages, or up a treehouse watching snooker champion Steve Davis spin some records, or in an old American roadster watching a movie on a massive outdoor screen, or a thousand other different things people are doing at any one time at the best party on earth.

*cough cough* Oh sorry, I meant to say, yeah, decent, nice one.

Billy Davis December 15, 2019 - 5:37 pm

People that spent over 200 quid for Paul McCartney and Taylor swift right now

Richard Hallam December 15, 2019 - 5:40 pm

This is the funniest thing I have seen for ages! I didn’t even try to get tickets but I’m glad I didn’t bother! I genuinely thought the 50th anniversary was going to be something special but so far the acts are comical.

Phil Mathias December 15, 2019 - 5:41 pm

I’ll be celebrating my 50th Birthday whilst at Glastonbury next year and this will be my 7th Glastonbury in the last decade. There’s been years I’ve rarely visited the pyramid stage as the acts have not been my cup of tea! For all the haters out there with their derogatory comments on this post, NEWS FLASH…there are tonnes of other stages to go to if you don’t like who’s on at the Pyramid!! That’s what’s great about this festival,a big choice for everyone’s taste and I’ve yet to go and not had an awesome experience regardless who’s headlining! I don’t think I could name one of Taylor’s songs but personally I think she’ll be great, put on a superb performance and good for you Taylor👍!

Kenneth Campbell December 15, 2019 - 5:41 pm

I do love all these people moaning about Taylor. She may not be your cup of tea (she certainly isn’t mine) but she is one of the biggest acts in the world and a perfect headliner for Glastonbury. They now have one of the biggest acts in the world and one of the most important artists in music history. It is impressive booking I look forward to see who will be the hundreds of other acts that will be performing

Gregg Nolan December 15, 2019 - 5:44 pm

Macca is a good choice, Taylor Swift is shite. When Michael was in control the festival had something. In the last few years it’s become a pop festival. Gutted I didn’t get a ticket for the 50th anniversary to celebrate the good years, but definitely not bothered about the direction it’s going in now. Good luck to Emily, but it ain’t my cup of tea.

Steve Goodall December 15, 2019 - 5:46 pm

I’m sure she will have a packed stage as will Macartney and I’ll be having a great time too……😀……..there’s plenty more to do, don’t fret 👍

Simon Marlow December 15, 2019 - 5:48 pm

Gets poorer and poorer by the year thanks to Emily. It’s just yet another large scale commercial music venture, it has NOT been Glastonbury Festival for at least the last 20 years!

Zoe Dalton December 15, 2019 - 5:50 pm

Yes yes yes! I was so hoping Taylor would be there. This has made my day. 😀

Angela Shelton December 15, 2019 - 5:55 pm

Well I’m chuffed to bits I always need something uplifting by Sunday night

John Moore December 15, 2019 - 6:03 pm

What is everyone moaning about? Before most of you had even heard of “Glasto” it was known as the Pilton Pop Festival. Its being totally true to its roots. I for one won’t be watching her, but tens of thousands will and I hope they have a great time.

Andre Sharp December 15, 2019 - 6:15 pm

Unfortunately are group Unsuccessful with winning tickets. Taylor swift wouldn’t be my top choice of headliner, but she I bet she will put in a shift of a performance. If u do choose to watch her and don’t enjoy it just SHAKE IT OFF and go out watch someone else. 👍🏻

Elwyn Andrew December 15, 2019 - 6:21 pm

Brilliant- loads of tickets will suddenly become available in the resale.

Jane Earthy December 15, 2019 - 6:49 pm

Certainly not my cup of tea but…. until last year I would have said not us Mylie Cyrus but she absolutely nailed it!

Rebecca Lowe December 15, 2019 - 7:06 pm

🙋🏻‍♀️ I’d LOVE to go back after a 10 year hiatus so please by all means return your tickets if you’re really that distraught and I might have a chance in the resale!? 😬

Rhiannon Funk December 15, 2019 - 7:45 pm

Christine and The Queens closing on the Other Stage again for 2020 and I’ll be delighted. Make it so!

Andy Murphy December 15, 2019 - 7:57 pm

I’ve seen Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift in the last few years and they were two of the best gigs I have ever been to and I have been to loads
And if you don’t want to see them then there are Plenty of other things to see and do.

Be happy as some of us couldn’t get a ticket for next year

Phil Clarke December 15, 2019 - 7:58 pm

I’m off to the local pub to see some unsigned talent.

Kat Muse Jones December 15, 2019 - 9:27 pm

I’m going, I don’t care for Taylor, McCartney n not bothered about Ross. BUT I’m still ECSTATIC to have got a ticket, Glasto is so much more than the Pyramid stage. The night Kanye played we had the best night cos we wandered off and ended up dancing with a mariachi band somewhere 💃🏻 If people who have tickets are that arsed then let your tickets go into resale. Simple 👍🏻
