Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis has let slip a big name that he has lined-up for the 2020 edition of the mega-festival.

As the world’s biggest music event celebrates its 50th anniversary the plan is to have a former Beatle to headline the show.

Interviewed on BBC Somerset, Eavis said: “Paul’s on good form at the moment.”

Asked by the reporter if he meant that McCartney would be heading to the festival, Eavis said “Hopefully for the 50th… but don’t make a big thing of it will you?”

Expectations are riding high for Glastonbury’s half-century event which will take place from 24 to 28 June 2019.

Macca’s 2018 album “Egypt Station” became his first in 36 years to top the Billboard 200 and the first to debut at number one.

If McCartney does make a return to the Pyramid Stage, it will be his first appearance since 2004.

Also hotly tipped to appear at Glastonbury 50 are names like Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac and Queen.

Speaking to NME about the possibility of Queen performing Adam Lambert said: “I’m sure that if it were the right type of arrangement, I’m sure we would all be really, really honoured to be a part of Glastonbury.”

One record that McCartney is unlikely to challenges is one set by The Killers performance this year where they reached sound level of 106 decibels.
