Emily Eavis drops big hints on Glastonbury 2019 headliners

As festival season kicks in to high gear one festival missing from the usual roster is Glastonbury. The festival is in one of its ‘fallow years’, where the organisers save Worthy Farm from the 100,000+ festival goers so the grounds can replenish somewhat. But that’s not stopped the excitement for Glastonbury 2019 from being amped up by Queen of Glasto, Emily Eavis.

The festival organiser has dropped some massive hints around who will be featured at next year’s event as she spoke to the BBC.

“We’ve done our first draft of the Pyramid Stage, this is where we’re at, we’re drafting in a few other stage headliners, that’s what we’re doing today. We’re making progress – really it’s been the last couple of weeks. The festival weekend triggered a lot of agents getting on the phone and thinking ‘oh actually, it’s time we got on the case for next year.

“It’s all really started moving quite quickly now. We’ve finally found our Sunday teatime legend slot as well, which is really exciting.”

She added while speaking to the BBC: “I can’t tell you, but I’ll give you a clue: it’s a female. She is not British, but I can’t give you any more clues because it will get me into trouble.”

Asked about the prospect of The Beatles legend performing, she replied: “Oh we always want him – he’s top of our list. We’ll have to see.”
