Meanwhile, the rumours have already begun circulating for who could be set to play Glastonbury's 50th anniversary in 2020.

Most recently, Sir Paul McCartney has said that there’s a “remote possibility” that he will top the bill at the Pyramid Stage next year.

Speaking to the BBC, the former Beatle admitted: “People are saying that it would be good if I did it, so I’m starting to think about whether I can or whether it would be a good thing.

"My kids are saying ‘Dad we’ve got to talk about Glastonbury’ and I think I know what they mean.

“It’s starting to become some remote kind of possibility. It’s definitely not fixed yet but people are starting to talk about it.”

The Liverpool legend last headlined Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in 2004, delivering a superb set that mixed solo hits like Maybe I’m Amazed and Live And Let Die with Beatles classics such as Get Back, Hey Jude and Helter Skelter.
