Glastonbury Festival is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, and it picked the perfect headliner to mark the occasion. Paul McCartney will be in charge of leading the lineup of the biggest festival in the UK in 2020.  

There’s been a lot of rumors circling around about McCartney’s participation, and he added some fuel to the fire by posting a photo of Philip Glass, Emma Stone, and Chuck Berry on Twitter. Since their last names spell the word “Glass-Stone- Berry”, his fans took it as a sign he’ll be headlining this festival.

It turns out they were right when Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis confirmed he’ll be performing at the upcoming edition of the legendary festival shortly after he posted this “subtle” clue.

“IT’S REAL!! So excited… Having Paul McCartney coming back to headline the Pyramid next year is an absolute dream come true. There really was no one that we wanted more for the 50th anniversary,” wrote Eavis on Twitter.

Glastonbury 2020 is set to take place from June 26-30, and we’re yet to find out who’ll join the music icon on this legendary stage.
