Yes, Paul McCartney is playing Glastonbury

He’s the second name confirmed by the festival.

After posting a not-so-subtle hint on his Twitter account, Paul McCartney has been confirmed as the first of Glastonbury 2020’s headliners.

He’ll top the bill on the Pyramid Stage on Saturday.

He’s the second name confirmed by the festival, after it was announced back in October that Diana Ross would be playing the event’s legend slot on Sunday afternoon.

Revisit our interview with Macca from last summer, in which he talks latest album ‘Egypt Station’, working with Kanye West and more.
