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

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

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

If the rumours of all women on the pyramid Sunday is true, pls move heaven and earth to get Halsey pls and thank u. Lana will be unreal good job Emily on the bookings so far ❤️

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.

That’s more like it 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

Keawalin Patipatwasin ต้องไปนะ glasto ปีนี้ ห้ามพลาดนะ ไม่ได้นะ

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.

was awful at latitude. Everyone left

Yawn. .there are better and more talented ladies out there..... Laura Marling, Haim Lorde are 3 that spring to mind immediately

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

Lana Del NOPE 😴😴😴

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

Can you just release the line up now!!!!!

Is she headlining then?

If you wanna get depressed, ideal! 👌👀

No sé porque hasta ahorita no me ha fascinado Pepe ... Por algo no fue nuestro año

Are they going to announce any bands

Turning into v festival

Hope it's more interesting than her latitude concert... She stopped after 4 songs and took selfies with the crowd for 10 minutes ... No music just selfies

Jord Owen

Again.... It's been awhile since....

Wolf Alice?

It doesn’t seem like I m going anywhere close to pyramid stage this year... come on Glasto give us a good name!

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! 👏👏👏

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!

She will split opinion for sure but will probably smash out an amazing performance just like Miley Cyrus.

Lesley Abel December 15, 2019 - 5:03 pm

That’s me at a different stage on Sunday night – disappointed

Jonathan Hague December 15, 2019 - 5:05 pm

Please come out asap and tell us who is headlining the other stages on Sunday!!

Andy Burton December 15, 2019 - 5:08 pm

Lots more to explore for those that don’t fancy this. I’ll be somewhere else for sure but I would be very surprised if both this – and what you do see weren’t bloody brilliant.

Jules Harte December 15, 2019 - 5:09 pm

Paddy with this line up I actually think staying at home for all that’s on here isn’t a bad idea 🤔 GnR v Granda McCartney & Taylor Swift…. no comparison imo 🤷‍♀️

Gemma Burchill December 15, 2019 - 5:10 pm

I’m sorry I cannot stand Taylor swift , ok she’s done well for herself but she isn’t a 50th closing Glastonbury celeb ,

Jemma Akay December 15, 2019 - 5:13 pm

Those of us without tickets this year who know that Glasto is more than the headliners are still praying that others will bail 🙈

Paul Holloway December 15, 2019 - 5:13 pm

Not my cup of tea but she is a big deal and I suppose the age of festival goers is getting younger as long as someone good on another stage it doesn’t really matter

Fred Oon Kian Chua December 15, 2019 - 5:15 pm

This is so Over the Top ! So many Bands so little time !

And it’s 50th anniversary

Helen Gorman December 15, 2019 - 5:16 pm

Naysayers – your daily reminder that there are 100 stages at Glasto so am sure you can find something to your taste 😃 Neither Macca or Taylor are my taste so I’ll go elsewhere 😂🙄 Macca is a Beatle tho so entirely appropriate for the 50th. I’ll personally be at Foals on the other 😜 (or whoever it is)

Brian Penny December 15, 2019 - 5:24 pm

A tenner says this time last year Michael thought Taylor Swift was a migratory bird

Jane Platt December 15, 2019 - 5:28 pm

I love how people cant have an opinion about a headliner without all the “theres 100 stages at glasto” …. er yeah… we know… we also have opinions!!!

Rob Gillham December 15, 2019 - 5:29 pm

Brilliant booking. Already shaping up to be another memorable festival. Roll on June

Peter Howard December 15, 2019 - 5:29 pm

Fair play. She’s one of the biggest stars in the world. Not my bag, so I’m off to the glade. Obviously not just yet.

Debbie Samuel December 15, 2019 - 5:29 pm

Id love to go but didnt manage to get tickets please stop moaning there Are quite a few stages im sure there will be another stage you can attend gutted i cant get tickets x

Claire Gray December 15, 2019 - 5:32 pm

Where is the classic line up, especially as its a huge milestone of 50years!!!

Jessica Dale December 15, 2019 - 5:35 pm

She’s amazing live. Can’t wait to see her again.

Becca Wears December 15, 2019 - 5:35 pm

I just feel like this definitely should’ve been someone who is a legend closing the 50th anniversary, she hasn’t got that status…

Sandra Martin December 15, 2019 - 5:42 pm

I love Glastonbury but Taylor Swift ain’t no legend ! How did she get the closing slot ??? Too much Emily not enough Michael input I say !

Jus Ough December 15, 2019 - 5:44 pm

I don’t normally get on the band wagon with these posts but for the last few years people have moaned and groaned about the headlining acts. Adele, stormzy, Ed, Coldplay to name a few and they end up being epic sets that people are still talking about. Give the girl a break she will probably surprise you all and yes If she’s not your cup of tea go elsewhere or best still don’t pay for your ticket and give others a chance to go

Daniel Lance December 15, 2019 - 5:47 pm

Simply not good enough, such a let down 🙁 what has happened to the festival I love so much 😰

Patty Hesketh December 15, 2019 - 5:51 pm

You should just be happy you’ve got a ticket, my brother is a Glastonbury champion but he didn’t get tickets this time, hoping he get lucky in the new year……

Denise Osborne December 15, 2019 - 5:52 pm

Better spending your money supporting local bands and listening to their talent.🤘

Daren Green December 15, 2019 - 6:36 pm

Very disappointed festival bands !
put your hand in your very deep pockets a get a top act

Conor Clancy December 15, 2019 - 6:50 pm

She’s a massive star but doesn’t belong at Glastonbury. But in fairness she’s no worse than Adele or Beyoncé. Just commercial crap attracting the wrong crowd making it harder to get tickets each year.

Kym Matronic-Jones December 15, 2019 - 7:14 pm

I love when people moan about the headliners on the Pyramid stage. If you’re going to Glasto just for the pyramid stage you’re not going for the right reason. Go to another mainstream festival instead!

Guy Tillier December 15, 2019 - 7:29 pm

WALOS . Surely you could have found better than that not to mention Paul McCartney on Saturday. Completely clueless and out of touch. I am totally disappointed with who they have chosen. What a load of ****

Gordon Claydon December 15, 2019 - 7:57 pm

Look Glastonbury is all about a wide range of musical genres, I totally get that but this is the wrong decision for the 50th. Stick her on a headline slot any other time fine but the 50th anniversary. Get a grip E&M

Karen Howard December 15, 2019 - 8:33 pm

I’m just disappointed that not one of the nights has a big band headlining. It sounds pretty much like it will be Kendrick Lamar for the Friday.

Debbie Burrett December 15, 2019 - 8:40 pm

I hope the other stage has far better. This is suppose to be the 50th I’m not excited about any of the acts announced so far. This year was brilliant, was difficult to decide who to go and see.

Charlotte Stocker December 15, 2019 - 9:27 pm

I see people are annoyed by one of the best selling artists of all time headlining Glasto 😂 I’m not the biggest Taylor fan but she has a right to be there for this reason in my opinion. There are only so many ‘indie/legend’ bands you can get on the pyramid stage… good news for people trying in the resales! Glasto might have to announce some key indie/rock bands for the other stage though or else… well nothing it will still be a blinder of a festival

Sophie L Clarke December 15, 2019 - 10:05 pm

Really?! Taylor Swift closing Glastonbury 50th anniversary?!!

Denise McCluskey December 15, 2019 - 11:34 pm

My daughters will be delighted but I’m gutted as I was hoping it would be Fleetwood Mac.☹️

Mariconn Bautista December 16, 2019 - 1:48 am

You made a right decision👏 You chose the best star😍 Taylor Swift headlining Glastonbury is AMAZING!!

Helen Moxon December 16, 2019 - 7:23 am

I am not a fan of Swifty, but would give my left arm to be back there next year…praying for some luck with the resale 🙏🏼 Anyone who isn’t able to even try and see past the main stage headliners, is a waste of a ticket 🤦🏼‍♀️ (Get yourself to shangri-la and tell me your not enjoying yourself 🤪) Seriously, If you are disappointed your missing the whole point of the life-affirming experience that is Glastonbury…and tbh you probably need to go more than you realise ✌🏼 #beleavis

Phil Eggins December 16, 2019 - 9:18 am

Been to Glastonbury 3 times, not once been at the pyramid stage on the Saturday night. There’s plenty else to see.
