Sir Paul McCartney and The Cure now favourites for Glastonbury Festival headline spots


The, what seems now national, pastime of predicting who will headline Glastonbury Festival has taken another turn with Betway slashing odds on Robert Smith’s The Cure and Sir Paul McCartney joining Stormzy as the headline acts for the 2019 festival.

Rumours have been surfacing online that The Cure, who are making their way across the world as part of a huge tour, alongside Sir Paul, who is doing the same, will be the next names confirmed for the festival at Worth Farm.

Other names which were previous favourites, including Liam Gallagjer, Arctic Monkeys and Elton John have slid down the pecking order, leaving The Cure and Macca as frontrunners.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “With Stormzy confirmed and two even-money shots at the head of the market, we look close to having our Glastonbury headliners confirmed.

“The Cure and Paul McCartney have both been well-backed and are now clear of Liam Gallagher, 3/1, and Arctic Monkeys, 5/1, in the race to headline the Pyramid Stage.”

But if the announcement that Stormzy will headline Friday night’s festivities tells us anything is that we should always expect the unexpected when it comes to Glastonbury Festival.
