Michael Eavis has revealed that Sir Paul McCartney will “hopefully” be performing at Glastonbury in 2020.

The festival founder said the former Beatles frontman has been in “good form” and could top the bill next year, when Glastonbury celebrates its 50th anniversary.

McCartney previously headlined Glastonbury in 2004 and has been repeatedly linked with the festival in recent years.

Eavis let slip the news during an interview with the BBC, before asking the broadcaster not to “make a big thing of it”.

This year’s festival will be headlined by The Killers, The Cure and Stormzy.

Kylie Minogue, Janet Jackson, Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus and Tame Impala will also perform at the event, which takes place from June 26–30.
