Carrie Underwood to Make an Appearance at 2019 Glastonbury Festival

5th June 2019 | Category: Concerts

Country superstar Carrie Underwood has announced that she will be performing at the 2019 Glastonbury Festival, which will take place in Pilton, Somerset, England from June 26th until June 30th.

The singer’s Cry Pretty Tour 360 in the United Kingdom will see her making a stop at the 2019 Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. According to a press release about the newly added gig, Underwood will perform at the festival on June 29th, before she heads to Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester and London.

Other stars that will make an appearance at the five-day festival include headliner The Killers, The Cure, Kylie Minogue and Janet Jackson, alongside George Ezra, Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus, Hozier and Wu-Tang Clan.

Carrie Underwoods Cry Pretty Tour 360 is now in full swing, having opened on May 1st in Greensboro, North Carolina. When the tour was first announced, it promised to put women front and center, and judging by the performances so far, it delivered that and more.

When asked about how the idea for the all-woman tour came to be, the singer responded saying that the lack of representation by women in country, music, on the country charts, and at festivals and awards show was the topic of conversation over the last several years. Underwood has decided to address the issue by having all of the artists, from headliner herself to first act Runaway June, begin their sets by rising from below the stage, a clear metaphor that says women in country music are on their way up.

So, if you are up for a dose of female empowerment and some country jammin’, you know where you can grab your tickets!
