Father John Misty will return to Glastonbury this summer, the artist has announced.
Self-confirming the news following his 6Music Festival appearance earlier today, the former Fleet Foxes member will return to Worthy Farm after a two year absence – he last played at The Park stage back in 2015. It’s highly likely he’ll use the opportunity to showcase cuts from his forthcoming album Pure Comedy, which lands next month.
Father John Misty’s appearance adds to the growing number of confirmed artists on this year’s Glastonbury bill, which now includes all three headliners (Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Ed Sheeran), Nile Rodgers, Fatboy Slim, Soulwax and London Grammar, among others. The full line-up is still yet to be revealed however it’s likely Glastonbury organisers will drip-feed the first 100-odd names (or so) over the next week or two, prior to the closure of the ticket balance payment window.
More as we hear it.
