Glastonbury Festival is turning 50 next year, so it’s only fitting to mark the occasion by picking a headliner whose music repertoire forever changed the world. It turns out they found the person who perfectly fits this description in the Beatles legend Paul McCartney.

Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis officially confirmed his involvement on Twitter and said it’s “an absolute dream come true” to have McCartney headline the 50th anniversary of this iconic festival.

Eavis’ announcement wasn’t so surprising though as the former Beatle ruined it with a “subtle” tweet. McCartney posted a photo of Philip Glass, Emma Stone, and Chuck Berry, and it didn’t take his fans too long to figure out that their last names spell the word “Glass-Stone- Berry”.

This won’t be McCartney’s first time performing at the legendary British festival. He also served as one of the headliners back in 2004, alongside Oasis and Muse. The legendary singer can’t wait to go back, and he announced his Glastonbury set by tweeting, “Hey Glasto – excited to be part of your Anniversary celebrations. See ya next summer!”
