Stephen Hawking To Appear At Glastonbury


Stephen Hawking Glastonbury Festival Dynamo

Glastonbury is famous for very many things – stone circles, crusty hippies and loud music – but almost certainly not for science. However, a reputation for serious thought might start developing with the news that Stephen Hawking is to make an appearance at this year’s festival.

Glasto’s official Twitter account confirmed that the world-renowned professor, whose life was recently the subject of the Oscar-winning movie The Theory of Everything, will be appearing at the Kidz Field. He’ll be part of the 21st anniversary celebrations of the creation of that area of the festival, which is aimed at children aged 12 or under.

It looks like Glastonbury is going to keep the speculation about its third and final headliner going pretty much right up until the festival itself. Michael Eavis, the owner of Worthy Farm where the three-day event is held, has revealed that the announcement will come on June 1st.

The NME reported that Eavis was speaking at an event at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum on Tuesday evening (April 21st), describing the history of the prestigious festival. It was when he was talking to attendees and posing for pictures afterwards that he made the revelation – adding that the artist would be a “big one”.

This squelches rumours that have been doing the rounds since May after Christine McVie said “if Michael Eavis provides the wellies I’ll be there”.
