Madonna ‘set to headline Glastonbury 2019 for the first time’

Glastonbury might not be happening this year, as the farm needs a break from all of its festival goers. But that hasn’t stopped organisers Michael and Emily Eavis from plotting its grand return - and it sounds like the Queen of Pop might just be making an appearance. That’s right - as it stand Madonna is reportedly favourite to headline the legendary festival in 2019. Talking to The Sun’s Bizarre column and insider revealed: ‘Preparations are already well under way after they’ve taken this year off, and Michael and his ­daughter Emily Eavis want to make it better than ever.

‘They have always been massive fans of Madonna and know she would put on an unforgettable show.’ It would be the first time Madge has ever performed at the festival and could be seen throwing out some of her classic hits on the world famous Pyramid Stage. The source added that the pair wanted to get a female artists to show their ‘diversity’ after they were inundated with backlash for not putting many women on the bill last year.

They said: ‘It was really important that they had a diverse line-up for the 2019 festival after criticism of previous ones. And with this being a fallow year they want to secure a really big name to drive ticket sales.’ It’s not the first time Madonna has been wanted to headline the show, as in 2000 Michael spoke about how he wanted to bag the Like A Virgin songstress after he was impressed with Courtney Love’s band Hole in 1999. At the time he said: ‘I would like to get Madonna, I tell you that, especially with her William Orbit [Madonna’s producer] connections.
