Paul McCartney has sent the online world into overdrive with a recent Tweet possibly teasing a slot at Glastonbury festival. The Beatle bassist shared a new Wordle-style teaser on his Twitter, prompting renewed speculation of an appearance at the legendary festival.

Previously penned in to headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in 2020 with Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar, McCartney’s Glastonbury slot faded away into a COVID nightmare. With the festive activities set to return this June, however, rumours as to who joins Billy Eilish are back with a bang.

Yesterday afternoon, the Beatles legend sparked fresh rumours with his Wordle-style teaser of “25/6”, which could mean the empty slot on June 25th. The Wordle teaser also features six green tiles which could spell out ‘GLASTO’, which could be short for ‘Glastonbury’.

McCartney has prior form when it comes to this type of hint, having previously shared a composite image of Philip Glass, Emma Stone and Chuck Berry. The legendary musician teased the image ahead of an official announcement that he had been booked to headline Glastonbury in 2020.

Glastonbury organiser, Emily Eavis made a recent announcement that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2022 will be announced next month. However, only Billy Eilish, Diana Ross (who is playing the ‘Legends’ slot) and Little Simz have been announced, thus far. Maybe the stars are set to align and will signal the dawn of a McCartney blowout in 2022!

Meanwhile, Glastonbury organisers this week confirmed details of their ticket resale policies and processes for 2022, giving others a chance to still bag tickets. According to reports, 2022 ticketholders who have paid a deposit for either a general admission ticket, or a coach package, must pay their final balance of £230 (+ £5 booking fee) per ticket between 9am on March 1st, and 11:59pm on March 7th, otherwise their tickets will be returned.
