Lana Del Rey has confirmed that she will be performing at the upcoming Glastonbury Festival after apparently threatening to cancel her scheduled appearance.
Lana Del Rey, the American pop star, has cleared any doubts about her appearance at the Glastonbury Festival this year, after previously appearing to threaten to pull out of the festival.
The 37-year-old confirmed that she will headline Other Stage in June and is “excited” to tell her fans. Her statement comes two weeks after she expressed her dissatisfaction with the festival’s billboard, which listed her under what she considered “minor” acts in alphabetical order.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, he wrote: “Thank you for announcing that I would be headlining the other stage. Thumbs up”, and she also hinted at the possibility of canceling the performance from her. As first reported by Sommerset.Live, Lana Del Rey confirmed in a BBC Radio 1 interview with Clara Amfo that she is excited to headline Other Stage and even divulged that she vividly remembers her last performance at the festival almost a year ago. decade. “We did it before, like her eons ago,” she said. “But honestly, it seems like yesterday.”
Lana recalled her unique stage setup, where the crowd was set back a thousand feet, making it difficult for her to get close to her fans. “Every time she tried to get past the monitors to get closer to everyone, the comments reverberated through the crowd. I was like, ‘Oh wow, I’m really stuck on this stage, I can’t go down like I usually do and sing with everyone.
Apparently, the Glastonbury Festival organizers had been trying to book Lana for the past three years, but she wanted to wait until she had a big band before agreeing to perform. And now that her time has finally come, she’s thrilled to be on stage. “As we start announcing some festivals, it’s inconceivable for me to headline the second leg of Glastonbury,” she said. Well, we can’t wait to see what Lana and her gang have in store for the Other Stage.
