Though still a month off from 2017’s visit to Worthy Farm, rumours are already starting to seep through regarding Glastonbury 2019, and even further beyond toward Glasto’s 50th anniversary in 2020.
Last month, organiser Emily Eavis revealed that two acts had already been confirmed to headline in 2020 as part of the festival’s 50th year. Now, in a new interview with NME, Adam Lambert has hinted how much he and Queen would love to be part of the 2020 celebrations – “I mean, I’m sure that if it were the right type of arrangement, I’m sure we would all be really, really honoured to be a part of Glastonbury.” said Lambert of a potential headline slot, continuing “I mean we’re trying to just do one year at a time! You know, because we’re pretty much booked for the rest of the year this year, so I don’t know.”
Speaking candidly about the bookings for the upcoming 50th anniversary, Eavis said “Ideally, we’d have a mix of old and new acts headlining. A bit of both. But, a lot can happen between now and then, and it’s about seeing who comes through and who would be right for us. It kind of depends, we’ve just got a little while, we’re not in any rush, but it’s quite exciting. It’s always good having something in the long term plans as well.”
Back to present-day though, and Glastonbury 2017 opens its doors in just over 7 weeks time. Yesterday the site’s ‘naughty corner’ at Shangri-La released their line-up, and it’s a dream for garage ravers! Check it out here.
