Janelle Monáe confirmed as Glastonbury new headliner
Janelle Monáe is confirmed as the new headliner for the Glastonbury 2019 lineup. The announcement was made by Glastonbury Festival organiser Emily Eavis on the phone with Lauren Laverne from BBC 6music.
The north-american singer will headline the West Holts stage joining the two other previsouly confirmed acts, Stormzy, who is Friday's Pyramid Stage headliner and Kylie Minogue who is set to perform at the Pyramid Stage's tea-time slot. Monáe released her third album Dirty Computer last April and was earlier announced to play at Coachella Festival, in Indio, CA, and Primavera Sound Festival in Spain.
Emily Eavis also revealed that Acadia are working on a completely new design with a new show, that the Block 9 area will be expanding, and that The Park will have a new area near where the Teepees were. At last, the Glastonbury Festival boss said that Madonna, Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin are not appearing at this year's edition.
The iconic British festival will be held between 26 and 30 June. The first bunch of tickets sold out in just 29 minutes, last October, but a new slot will be available on April.
