Emily Eavis, the co-organiser of the annual Glastonbury Festival, has confirmed that Sir Paul McCartney will headline next year’s event.
This update was teased by McCartney himself on Twitter, where he shared three images. One of actress Emma Stone, composer Philip Glass, and rock artist and legend Chuck Berry. The three surnames phonetically spell the word ‘Glastonbury’.
