Janelle Monáe to headline Glastonbury 2019 West Holts Stage


Janelle Monáe has been revealed as the third act on the line-up for Glastonbury 2019. Janelle is the first headliner announced for the West Holts Stage.

American singer-songwriter Monáe, who released her acclaimed third full-length album Dirty Computer last April, joins Stormzy and Kylie Minogue at this year’s Worthy Farm festival.

The news was announced on BBC 6 Music on Monday morning by Emily Eavis, who also gave further details of new developments on the Glastonbury site.

Arcadia is working on a new structure for 2019, while Block 9 is set to launch a new installation. There will also be “something new, near where the Teepees were”, Eavis said.

She added that, in terms of booking artists for the festival line-up, “we’re about 90 per cent of the way there.”
