Kylie Minogue to play Sunday 'legends' slot at 2019 Glastonbury Festival

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue will play Glastonbury 2019, the festival has announced.

The singer will take the Pyramid Stage's Sunday afternoon 'legends' slot on June 30, which has previously been filled by Dolly Parton, ELO, Johnny Cash and Lionel Richie among others.

“I’m so thrilled to announce that I’ll be playing the ‘Legend slot’," wrote Minogue on Twitter, before recalling that she had been due to headline the festival in 2005 but was forced to pull out due to treatment for breast cancer.

"It will be 14 years since I was originally meant to appear there and so much has happened up to now. I can’t wait to see you all there to share this special show,” she explained. The festival appearance will cap Minogue's triumphant comeback, with her Golden album – her first for BMG – hitting No.1 earlier this year.



Responding to the announcement, Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis also tweeted that they "cannot wait" for the set.

"We are delighted to announce that Kylie is finally bringing her show to Glastonbury," she wrote. "She'll play the legendary Sunday afternoon slot at next year's Festival. And we cannot wait."



As previously announced, Stormzy has been announced as one of the 2019 Glastonbury headliners, while the event itself sold out in 35 minutes.

Glastonbury is the current holder of Festival Of The Year at the Music Week Awards for its 2017 edition. Entries are now open for the 2019 Music Week Awards. The deadline for entries is midnight on January 16.
