Glastonbury Announces Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift And Diana Ross As Headliners
Glastonbury has released its first list of musical acts for this year's festival.
Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Diana Ross have been announced as the headliners for the 50th instalment of the famous festival.
The festival, like all events of its kind, has been thrown into doubt by the spread of the coronavirus, but co-organiser Emily Eavis said the team are 'working hard' with 'fingers crossed' to deliver the festival as scheduled.
Emily - the eldest daughter of the festival's founder Michael Eavis - added that many more acts were yet to be announced.

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! As always this is just a taste of what is to come, we plan to announce many more artists and attractions, area by area, over the coming weeks leading up to the full line-up in May. In the meantime we post this with much love to all. (There's also a non-circular version of the line-up - and full text list - on our website now)

Joining the headliners are the likes of AJ Tracey, Blossoms, Camila Cabello, Elbow, Fatboy Slim, Dua Lipa, Dizzee Rascal, Pet Shop Boys, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Sam Fender and Anna Calvi.

It remains to be seen whether the festival will be able to go ahead. Coachella, which was due to take place in California next month, has been pushed back to October.
The Metro reported that the cancellation of Glastonbury could result in £100 million ($126 million) in lost revenue.
