Paul McCartney is rumoured to headline Glastonbury 2022.

The Beatles legend was set to play the festival's 50th anniversary in 2020, but it was forced to shut its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now it is reported by The Sun that the iconic musician "will headline" the festival just a week after his 80th birthday, making him the oldest artist to top the bill at the festival.

The outlet adds that Macca will play the Saturday night of the festival after sets from Noel Gallagher and Haim, with Billie Eilish playing a headline set on the Friday night of the festival and Kendrick Lamar closing the festival on the Sunday.
