No other performers are confirmed yet, however there are rumours circulating about Arctic Monkeys, Taylor Swift, Eminem, and Harry Styles.
The 'Rocket Man' is currently on his worldwide Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which began in 2018. The Glastonbury performance is set to be the final show of the musicians tour and his career, after more than 3,500 concerts worldwide over five decades.

Back in October, an announcement of the festival's ticket prices caused some concern. The tickets are listed for £335 plus a £5 booking fee, up £70 in the last three years. The festival's co-organiser Emily Eavis explained that the "incredibly challenging times" call for the price raise. Nonetheless, the festival sold out within an hour when tickets went on sale on the 6th of November.
