Speaking to students at Somerset’s Warminster School earlier this week on December 9, Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis announced when we'll find out who the Sunday night headliner will be.

“The top headliner for the Sunday night is going to be announced on the 15th of January," said Michael. "That’s going to be big news, yeah… I’m absolutely thrilled about it.”

This summer, the bookies were predicting potential headliners as Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Coldplay and The Kinks. The likes of Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar are also thought to be in the running.

There have also been rumours of Aerosmith and Rage Against The Machine making an appearance at Worthy Farm, but nothing has been confirmed.

At Glastonbury 2019, a bunch of rock and metal bands performed across the festival including Bring Me The Horizon, IDLES, Gojira, BABYMETAL and Venom Prison.
