Veteran Paul McCartney, rapper Kendrick Lamar and US chart-topper Olivia Rodrigo will perform at Glastonbury in June, organizers said on Friday after the music festival returned after a three-year absence due to the COVID pandemic.
McCartney and Lamar complete the list of headliners for the Pyramid main stage at the festival June 22-26, after previously announcing Billie Eilish and Diana Ross as part of the line-up.
McCartney, who last performed at the big greenfield music event in 2004, was scheduled to attend the 2020 edition of the festival before it was cancelled.
“Paul McCartney is obviously a dream for us, a big moment in our history,” Britain’s BBC quoted festival co-organizer Emily Eavis as saying.
“It means the world is bringing Paul McCartney to Glastonbury.”
McCartney will take the stage on Saturday June 25, a week after his 80th birthday, making him the festival’s oldest headliner. Eilish, Glastonbury’s youngest-ever solo headliner, will perform on Friday night, Ross on Sunday afternoon and Lamar later in the evening.
The festival, which took place in a huge field in south west England, unveiled its first poster for this year’s event with confirmed acts including Arlo Parks, Wolf Alice, Sam Fender, Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat and Herbie Hancock.
The festival last took place in 2019. While both the 2020 and 2021 editions have been cancelled, a virtual event was organized last May.
