Next year’s festival is set to take place from the 24th to the 28th of June, tickets sold out in just 34 minutes last weekend.

Glastonbury 2020 will also celebrate the festival’s golden anniversary, marking 50 years since farmer, Michael Eavis, invited 1500 people to his estate to view a variety of acts, with T.Rex headlining the event. Back then, tickets cost only £1 and came with a free bottle of milk. Nowadays, a Glastonbury ticket will cost £265 and it is expected to host around 175,000 attendees.

Headliners for the festival have yet to be confirmed though rumours suggest that Taylor Swift, Sir Paul McCartney and Fleetwood Mac are likely candidates, with McCartney himself hinting at his return to Glastonbury in September.
