Glastonbury start sharing stage-by-stage playlists of acts booked for 2020

Glastonbury has begun sharing stage-by-stage playlists compiling artists that were booked to perform at this summer’s festival – you can listen below.

Set to take place in June, the 50th anniversary of the Worthy Farm event was cancelled last month due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The initial line-up poster for 2020 had been revealed in the previous week.

Posting on Glastonbury’s official Twitter account this evening (April 14), organisers wrote that they “thought it’d be nice to update our main stages playlists on Spotify with the acts who would’ve been gracing those stages” this year.

“We begin with the John Peel Stage…” they added. Further stage run-downs are expected to be posted over the coming weeks.

The ‘John Peel Stage 2020’ playlist includes music from Primal Scream, The Big Moon, Clairo, Soccer Mommy, Editors, Glass Animals, FKA twigs and more.

Last year, Glastonbury shared individual playlists for the Pyramid Stage, Other Stage, John Peel Stage, West Holts and The Park.

This comes after Glasto boss Michael Eavis posted a playlist containing “tracks that remind him of the festival’s first decade”. The collection was accompanied by a passage written by Eavis in which he looked back on his experiences at Worthy Farm in the ’70s.

Announcing Glastonbury 2020’s cancellation last month, Michael and Emily Eavis said: “We’re so sorry that this decision has been made. It was not through choice. But we look forward to welcoming you back to these fields next year and until then, we send our love and support to all of you.”
