… ready for it? Taylor Swift has arrived in the 30th year of its existence.
On Sunday, the "Lover" singer announced that she would be headlining the Glastonbury Festival 2020 in the UK. This is not just an appearance. She will enter the coveted pyramid stage to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the festival. This is a pretty amazing milestone if you ask us.
The five-day, already sold-out festival begins on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 and ends on Sunday, June 28, 2020, when the Grammy winner will appear.
Swift made the announcement on social media with an epic selfie. Holding a flyer for the festival that read "From Christmas Tree Farm to Worthy Farm", she expressed her excitement and gratitude to her fans. "I am very pleased to announce that I will be headlining Glastonbury on the occasion of its 50th anniversary," wrote Swift. "See you there!"

The "Reputation" singer is not the only legend that will help the beloved festival to celebrate its 50th birthday. Sir Paul McCartney and Diana Ross will also be on board to celebrate. For his part, The Beatles Alaun will run the Saturday show and Ross will play the "Legends" slot on Sunday before Swift. The Friday headliner has yet to be announced.
Swift's 2020 Glastonbury headliner announcement comes a few days after she celebrated her 30th birthday on December 13th. Singer rang the big bell 3-0 with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn and her BFF squad, Blake Lively Ryan Reynolds Gigi Hadid Martha Hunt Antoni Porowski Jonathan Van Ness Jack Antonoff Camilla Cabello Halsey and the members from 5 Seconds of Summer .

"You passed around red Christmas hats with 30" Thir-Tay "on the front," an eyewitness said to E! News. "Everyone was wearing hats and dancing in the storm. There was funny music and everyone was singing and having a great time. They were drinking something and there was a lot of toasting and hugging. Everyone was so happy to celebrate Taylor."
As if this year could not end any better, Swift was recently named Artist of The Decade by Billboard and the American Music Awards. As she received her award from the AMAs, she said, "The last year of my life has gone through some of the most amazing and difficult times of my life, and not many of them are things that haven't been public yet."
"And I wanted to thank you so much for being what has been a constant in my life," she continued. "Like, this industry is really weird. You feel like your stock is either going up or down and people either like you or they don't or you feel bad about yourself. But the people who are for you there are those. " you will never forget that "
