While McCartney has attempted to dodge the speculation in recent weeks, the 77-year-old has seemingly confirmed the booking with a not-so-subtle message posted on social media. Tweeting an image of Philip Glass, Emma Stone and Chuck Berry, McCartney has dropped the clue of “Glass-Stone-Berry” to his fans.
Now, as festivalgoers worked themselves up into a frenzy, Emily Eavis has confirmed the news: “IT’S REAL!! So excited.. Having Paul McCartney coming back to headline the Pyramid next year is an absolute dream come true,” she said. “There really was no one that we wanted more for the 50th anniversary.”
McCartney, moving away from his cryptic message style of communication, also confirmed the news: “Hey Glasto – excited to be part of your Anniversary celebrations. See ya next summer!”
