Paul McCartney will be the headline act for the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury in 2020.

The organisers made the announcement on social media, adding that the Hey Jude hitmaker's show on the main Pyramid Stage will be on June 27, just days after he celebrates his 78th birthday. 

The 77-year-old former Beatle also took to Twitter, with the message: "Hey Glasto - excited to be part of your Anniversary celebrations. See ya next year!"

McCartney last appeared on the Pyramid Stage in 2004 alongside Oasis and Muse.
