Glastonbury is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, so we couldn’t wait to find out who’ll be in charge of headlining this iconic festival. The cat is finally out of the bag, and it turns out that the honors belong to Taylor Swift.
The “Shake It Off” singer announced the news by sharing a photo posing with the festival flyer and captioned it by writing “I’m ecstatic to tell you that I’ll be headlining Glastonbury on its 50th anniversary.”
Swift will take the prestigious Sunday night spot at this iconic festival, and she joins previously announced headliners Paul McCartney and Diana Ross.
Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis shared the news with the world and welcomed Swift to the star-studded lineup. “Taylor is one of the biggest and best artists on the planet, and we’re just so pleased that she’s coming here to Worthy Farm to join us for our 50th birthday celebrations,” she said in a statement.
Glastonbury is yet to announce Friday’s headliner, but Eavis revealed it’s going to be a male artist performing at the festival for the first time.
