Glastonbury "still working hard to deliver our 50th anniversary festival", announces a big batch of new names

Glastonbury has announced its first big batch of names for 2020.

Though a few performing acts - including headliners Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift - had already been revealed, the latest drop is the first significant chunk of the line-up to be unveiled.

Kendrick Lamar completes the headline slots, while elsewhere there's the likes of Dua Lipa, Thom Yorke, Charli XCX, The Big Moon, Blossoms, Clairo, Declan McKenna, FKA Twigs, Fontaines D.C., Haim, Kacey Musgraves, Lana Del Rey, Metronomy, Phoebe Bridgers, Robyn, Sam Fender, Soccer Mommy and loads more.

Alongside the announcement, an update from organiser Emily Eavis explains that - at the moment - the event is still planning to go ahead.

"After much consideration given the current circumstances, and with the best of intentions, here is the first list of musical acts for Glastonbury 2020," she writes.

“As things stand we are still working hard to deliver our 50th anniversary festival in June and we are very proud of the bill that we have put together over the last year or so. No one has a crystal ball to see exactly where we will all be 15 weeks from now, but we are keeping our fingers firmly crossed that it will be here at Worthy Farm for the greatest show on Earth."

She goes on to explain that more artists and attractions will be announced in the coming weeks, with the full-line up arriving in May.
