Dazu Diana Ross und Aerosmith - was will man daran aussetzen?
Dem einen oder anderen dürfte in der Spitze wohl der Einschlag der 90er/00er fehlen, aber daran an deren mangelnden Berücksichtigung krankt des dem Lineup ja eh nie.
In an interview with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 this evening (February 6), the American singer-songwriter was asked if a performance at Glastonbury this year is on her agenda, to which Keys replied: “I think it needs to be, right?!”.
Whiley then pointed out the fact that the pianist will be in Paris in June, while on the other hand also mentioning that it’s “close by” – with Keys commenting: “Well, you never know, I’m good for surprising people – I’m good for popping up on a person”.
“Ok, well hopefully I’ll see you in a field somewhere in Glastonbury in June” said Whiley – “Yes… Yes…” Keys then replied smilingly…
So, after much consideration given the current circumstances, and with the best of intentions, here is the first list of musical acts for Glastonbury 2020.
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.

We are so sorry to announce this, but Glastonbury 2020 will have to be cancelled, and this will be an enforced fallow year for the Festival.
Clearly this was not a course of action we hoped to take for our 50th anniversary event, but following the new government measures announced this week - and in times of such unprecedented uncertainty - this is now our only viable option.
We very much hope that the situation in the UK will have improved enormously by the end of June. But even if it has, we are no longer able to spend the next three months with thousands of crew here on the farm, helping us with the enormous job of building the infrastructure and attractions needed to welcome more than 200,000 people to a temporary city in these fields.
We would like to send our sincere apologies to the 135,000 people who have already paid a deposit for a Glastonbury 2020 ticket. The balance payments on those tickets were due at the beginning of April and we wanted to make a firm decision before then.
We understand that it is not always easy to secure a Glastonbury ticket, which is why we would like to offer all those people the chance to roll their £50 deposit over to next year, and guarantee the opportunity to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2021. Those who would prefer a refund of that £50 will be able to contact See Tickets in the coming days in order to secure that. This option will remain available until September this year. For those who are happy to roll their deposit over, that will happen automatically. Further information - including details on rolling over coach packages, official accommodation bookings and local Sunday tickets - will be added to our website in the coming days.
The cancellation of this year's Festival will no doubt come as a terrible blow to our incredible crew and volunteers who work so hard to make this event happen. There will also inevitably be severe financial implications as a result of this cancellation - not just for us, but also the Festival's charity partners, suppliers, traders, local landowners and our community.
We were so looking forward to welcoming you all for our 50th anniversary with a line-up full of fantastic artists and performers that we were incredibly proud to have booked. Again, we're so sorry that this decision has been made. It was not through choice. But we look forward to welcoming you back to these fields next year and until then, we send our love and support to all of you.
Michael & Emily

Aber schon heftig, vor ein paar Tagen das line up veröffentlichen. Und heute die Absage. British Summer Time startet ja eine Woche später. Wird als nächstes kommen
