Sir Paul McCartney joins the previously announced Diana Ross on the lineup for Glastonbury 2020. The Beatles’ frontman teased his booking this morning when he shared a photo of Phillip Glass, Emma Stone, and Chuck Berry to his twitter page. Festival organizers confirmed the booking shortly after.

For years, rumors have swirled about the paramount music and arts festival’s 50th-anniversary lineup, with bookies even giving odds and taking bets for possible headliners (McCartney has been a heavy favorite, with Taylor Swift having similar odds). The iconic Beatle is the first of the headliners to be announced, with festival organizer Emily Eavis commenting that “there really was no one that we wanted more for the 50th anniversary.”

McCartney last played Glastonbury in 2004, giving fans from around the world a live taste of Beatles magic in what was surprisingly the scouser’s first-ever festival performance.

Last month, all of the 155,000 tickets for Glastonbury 2020 sold out in just 34 minutes.
