Glastonbury 2020: Who will headline UK’s biggest music festival?

Published

on

A hugely successful Glastonbury 2019 has been and gone, with all eyes now turning to next summer’s event. 

And in an even bigger boost to the organisers of the incredible event, the festival has been granted permission to increase its capacity for 2020.

A reported attendance of an extraordinary 203,000 could rise to 210,000. But only if the festival’s organisers decide to make use of the 3.4 percent increase available to them.

But while those standing singing and dancing along to the music are crucial to the success of any concert, it’s the performers who attract all the attention.

And if there’s anyone who knows anything about attention, it’s the headline acts.

Stormzy, The Killers and The Cure all received the top recognition in 2019 as they headlined. The Cure and Coldplay are now the only acts to have headlined the festival four times.

Last summer also witnessed many artists making their Glasto debuts. It was Janet Jackson and Miley Cyrus that gathered the biggest numbers in that category.

But the main question remains; who will headline in 2020?

Punters have been giving odds on headliners ever since the last festival came to a magnificent ending. And it’s Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift and Paul McCartney who are currently leading the race to headline the festival in 2020.

American rapper Kendrick Lamar is 1/2 on Sky Bet to be one of those headliners. His fellow US singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is currently 4/7. Former member of The Beatles McCartney is available at 8/11.

There are also a number of multiples available. That same trio are currently 3/1 to be the Friday, Saturday and Sunday headliners.

Several bands also have their hats in the ring. Aerosmith, Foals and The 1975 are all seemingly within touching distance of headlining the show. Aerosmith are 13/8, with Foals and The 1975 both available at 7/2. 

Other top bands of recent decades also make the list. British outfit Coldplay are 9/2 to make it a record-fifth headlining appearance. Arctic Monkeys are available at 11/2, with Fleetwood Mac currently 4/1.

Further multiples include Taylor Swift, The 1975 and Fleetwood Mac to headline the Pyramid Stage at 22/1. Or Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac and Kendrick Lamar at 11/1.

Tickets for the 2020 festival reportedly sold out in 34 minutes. And that incredible statistic proves just how popular and loyal a following Glastonbury has.

The enormous occasion will once again see fans flock from all over to Worthy Farm. It looks set to be another  jaw-dropping event next summer.
