While there was no Glastonbury Festival in 2018 due to a fallow year, the annual Pilton Party will be going ahead as a “thank you” fund raising gig for villagers, workers and local people from the Eavis family and Glasto organisers.
Having recently hosted the likes of Bastille, Foals, Rudimental and The Vaccines (as well as Coldplay and Florence + The Machine prior to them being announced as headliners), now Emily Eavis has confirmed that former Oasis turned solo star Liam Gallagher will be headlining the one-day festival next month.
The event is held on Glastonbury’s Worthy Farm in a tent similar to the John Peel stage on Friday August 31. Gallagher will be joined by a selection of local acts who were chosen from a Battle Of The Bands competition. Tickets to the event are now sold out.
In other Glastonbury news, Emily Eavis recently said that they’re progressing well with the line-up for Glastonbury 2019, revealing that the Legend’s Slot will be a ‘non-British female’ and that Paul McCartney is ‘top of their list’ to headline.
Amid reports that Madonna will headline Glastonbury 2019, other rumoured headliners for Glastonbury 2019 include Arctic Monkeys, ABBA, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, Taylor Swift, Oasis and Kendrick Lamar.
Tickets to Glasto 2019 are expect to go on sale in September, before the first line-up announcement follows shortly after.
