The organisers of Glastonbury 2019 have refuted various rumours regarding big headliner names. It turns out that we will not see Madonna, Fleetwood Mac or Led Zeppelin at the festival.

Emily Eavis, who is one of the festival’s organisers, has made the announcement in Taunton last night. In addition she said that there will be a new area in the South East part of the festival. Also improvements will be made to lower the overcrowding after the main stages close.

After a fallow year in 2018, Glastonbury will return to Worthy Farm between 26 and 30 June 2019. Paul McCartney, The Cure, Taylor Swift and Arctic Monkeys are still among the rumoured headliners.

Tickets for the next edition of the festival sold out in just 35 minutes. A resale of unclaimed tickets is expected in April of next year after the first line-up announcement is made.
