Glastonbury 2019: Who Will Take the Final Headline Slot?

Written by frtyfve crew

6 artists are tipped for the final headline spot at Glastonbury 2019, but who are they..?

IT’S ALMOST TIME!

Let’s face it, Glastonbury is like a second Christmas for music fanatics and if the rumours are believed to be true, we’re very close to finding out what’ll be under the tree, I mean Pyramid stage, come summer 2019.

Over the past few days, excitement has been building online that this year’s final headliner is set to be announced imminently. But who will it be? What will we get for our second Christmas?

Like impatient 5 years olds, we can’t wait to find out either. So, we took a quick look at 6 of bookies favourites to do the honours...

1. Madonna

1. Madonna

1. Madonna

Odds: 1 / 5

Like a Glastonbury Virgin, Madonna has NEVER graced Worthy Farm with her presence. If the bookies are to be believed, this female icon is now the odds-on favourite to appear at the top of the bill... for the very first time.

2. Kendrick Lamar

2. Kendrick Lamar

Odds: 1 / 4

Potentially following in the footsteps of Jay-Z and Kanye, King Kenny is also amongst the favourites to headline this year. After his critically acclaimed headline slot at Leeds and Reading last year, could Compton’s King of Hip-Hop be about To Pimp Worthy Farm?

3. Elton John

3. Elton John

3. Elton John

Odds 1 / 2

Rocket Man is hot on the heels of Madonna & Kendrick to take the final slot this year. However, given that the odds seem to be in Madonna’s favour, Glasto might just Go Breaking the Hearts of Elton fans.

4. Fleetwood Mac

4. Fleetwood Mac

Odds: 2 / 1

Who doesn’t want to jump around in the mud and sing “thunder only happens when it’s rainniiinng” at the top of their lungs? If this happens, we’ll be right at the front.

5. Arctic Monkeys

5. Arctic Monkeys

5. Arctic Monkeys

Odds: 4 / 1

Tranquillity Base Hotel & Pyramid Stage? Given that the South-Yorkshire lads headlined the festival in just 2013, we aren’t hedging our bets just yet.

6. ABBA

6. ABBA

6. ABBA

Odds: 5 / 1

The ultimate Christmas gift for any music fan that doesn’t take themselves too seriously. Whilst this doesn’t look that likely, Take a Chance on Them?
